I couldn't find many reviews or what not, so the videos will have to stand the test. From what I can gather though, Busy P played a combination of numerous genres including house, electro, and others.
Some tracks including:
- Daft Punk "One More Time"
- SebastiAn "Greel"/"Killing In The Name Of (Remix)"
Begins with the track: "Kids (Soulwax Remix)" - MGMT with a fade into some house track, which I would really like to know the name of.

Due to popular demand, here we have it. A piece about the lovely, and brilliantly, genius, Mr. Oizo. Well, the remixes of his tracks rather.
Here is a review of the various remixes of his tracks from the 2008 “Lamb’s Anger” album. Some off the Pourriture - EP, and some off the Positif - EP
Steroids (Dog Tag Re -Edit) vs. Steroids (Mr. Oizo Remix)
Alrite, here is where I have to separate from everybody else. Everybody else simply loves the remix made by the man himself of the Uffie featured track “Steroids", off the 2008 release of the Lamb's Anger album. The Mr. Oizo remix of “Steroids” is a more hand clappy, rocked out version of the originally more bland track. People love the f*ck out of the remix, including major DJ’s. Turbo records Canadian artist Tiga, put it in his latest podcast.
The Dog Tag Re-Edit is simply delicious and addictive. It’s a “sped up” version with a steady tribal beat. Great interjections, fades, and stutters of the vocals make this remix simply hard hitting and unique. This remix takes Uffie’s vocals and forces them to f*ck the brains out of the beat.
At 2 minutes, there is a beautiful climax between the razor edge of the beat, and Uffie’s sexy, wet vocals. It is a perfect delivery to a perfect dosage of steroids. This track brings out the vocals, and makes Uffie sound like an actual grown up with a fiercenss to match those female artists who are at the top of their game. The whole track brings out the beauty of the original track, which is initially genius; this just touches up on it, and gives it that “umph” which makes it hard hitting and simply debonair.
Positif (LFO Remix)
It’s so …argh. Such dopeness in a mere 4 freakin minutes. Its so glitch, so eclectic, and random. It’s a beautiful car wreck. To those who truly understand electro, they will understand what that means. Its incredibly addictive, and such a wrecked take on the already insane “Positif.” Great wreckage goddamit. Great wreckage.
Erreurjean (Arveene and Misk Remix)
The beginning starts with a harsh repetitive stutter and frantically slaps its way into the main rhythm. A repetition all in a perfect alignment of notes that seem like an in control heart attack. After the multi step build up, the beats go into a dark series of pure bad ass.
Later the song goes into a glitch, arcade sound melody, like something the Crystal Castle drama queens randomly interjected. Just when you think there is a fade to the end, it bounces back around with a climactic beat, and back around to the original riff. This is a great remix which just pumps up and brings the original “Erreurjean” track to life, all the while capturing the true essence.
I'd love to know your take on the remixes. We appreciate your commments!

You know it's an amazingly hilarious interview, when it has these things:
1. Busy P introduced as "#1 French DJ of the Techno Style in the World"
2. When Busy P has had no sleep
3. When Busy P tackles the interviewer.
This interview was conducted by a Japanese kid named Daichi Ito. Who's crappy, japan accent riddled english, makes for the best interaction with Busy P you can imagine . Bwahaha.

At this point, you may be asking, "what's with the perve opening Cassidy?"
THIS should explain it ALL. Gaddamit Germany!
First though, look at how BADASS Kavinsky looks in this picture! The iconic Kavisnky jacket, classic Ray-Ban shades, and those fiercely, badass gloves! What is this?! He looks better than his own son Surkin!
Anywho, back on the subject...
the two are, like Busy P said, doing a German invasion.
As posted on Monsieur P's myspace, the two artists, Busy P and Kavinsky, along with electro artist Autokratz, are doing a simply fabulous tour for the popular denim company Levi's. And only for Germany.
WHAT THE HELL!
In case you folks don't know the very common language of German, here's the dates!

A couple of weeks ago, we recieved a couple lovely emails asking us to post up and coming DJ's tracks. So I said, "hey, why the hell not?" So lo and behold, I came up with the idea of a series of posts, revealing up and coming DJ's. Per Ed Banger track of course. This is the first in that series.
This remix is delicious. It has a hyped up glitchiness about it, that keeps the essence of the original track while at the same time, providing a pumped up danceclub allure. His take on the electrically complex original track of Testarossa, is a more lively renewal; the track is made to be highly danceable and surprisingly, keeps the upbeat, fluid tempo the original track has.

The magnificent news was spread via Le Cool Cats Blog, and Rainbow Man, (Busy P’s blog). You may have seen his growing claim to Ed Banger fame with his genius remix of Justice’s “Let There Be Light” in 2006.
Not much can be discovered about the man himself, much like other Ed Banger artist, SebastiAn. But here’s what I have compiled:
1. He’s a French man
2. He’s done a lot of remixes!
Here is a list of remixes he’s done:
justice - let there be light breakbot remix - japanese waters of nazareth EP (ed banger) //
datA - aerius light breakbot remix (ekleroshock) //
arrow - does breakbot remix (lobe)//
PNAU - baby (ministry of sound)//
alb - sweet sensation (rise recordings)//
fatlip - what's up fatlip (delicious vinyl)//
evil nine - theylive! (marine parade)//
late of the pier - bathroom gurgle (emi)//
pacific - hold me//metronomy a thing for me (because)//
zzz - lion(bang gang 12inches)//
digitalism - apollo-gize(emi)//
van she - kelly (modular)//
sebastien tellier - roche (record makers)//
royksopp - happy up here (emi)//
yuksek - extra ball (universal)
Breakbot’s style has involved remnants of the Ed Banger sound, but uses a fluid combination of other intricate noises as well, which keep him uniquely astray from the main artists of the group. I simply can’t wait to see what kooky collaborations come out of this. With any of the Ed Banger artists, Mr. Oizo, SebasiAn,, who knows. This should be an interesting adventure folks.
Here is one of his older tracks: Penelope Pitstop
Here's a lineup of his upcoming shows:

The event itself usually always has the top arists of the year on its lineup. Which obviously would explain Tiga and Mr. Oizo's presence on the lineup this year.
Anwyho, Mr. Oizo did an incredible set from what I can find, but there hasn't been many reviews or articles posted yet, so I'm just going to put the la crem of la crem. Here is a segment of Mr. Oizo's set.
The first track played is from Ed Banger artist and official artist,
So Me, off the Ed Rec. Comp.2. (the best one). It's a remix of UK band, the Klaxons.
"Golden Skans to Interzone (So Me Remix)"
The second track is one of my personal favorites. It's pure Ecstasy. Off the "Positif - EP," it's the Positif remix by LFO.
"Positif (LFO Remix)"
Take a bath in the pure sex of this set. And enjoy it.
Here's a clip from SebastiAn's set at the festival

On May 15th, dear paris, prepare for a kick ass performance including our boy Krazy Baldhead. He'll be playing alongside the acts of Datarock, the french band "I Am A Dog", and Rye Rye. The show will be hosted at "Club NME, Paris", and no admission under 18 without a guardian. Sorry kiddies.
