Since the neighboring and adjoining country Belgium has seen some of the greatest electronic acts like Soulwax, Mumbai Science, Aeroplane, The Magician or Modek there are four handsome guys that surely can keep pace with these outriders. Though GOOSE use more than just two turntables but instead create a smashing electronic sound adventure with their synthesizers, guitars, drums and in between the great voice of frontman Mickael Karkousse. The band from Kortrijk, Belgium was recently described by The Guardian as an ‘onstage powerhouse, successfully bridging the gap between electronic music and rock’ and now they spoke [...]
Mysterious acts, you just gotta love them. In Belgium we got a few and one of them is The Living Islands . We know 2 things about them: they don't make enough music and they know how to fucking boogie! Because damn, this new remix is so danceable and funky I can't stand still. Dark Goose track "Control" is now very sunny, shiny and happy with this TLI treatement. 802s vibes synths and drums combined with the catchy chorus of the track is gold. Check it out:
The Jam Jar , a brand new feature we’ll be rolling out every Wednesday going forward. The concept is pretty straightforward, each week we’ll add a new collection of indie-dance, house, and nu-disco style jams to the jar – the kind of tunes that carry you off into sun-filled daydreams, that are packed full of funky beats and deep basslines, and that most importantly make your day a more enjoyable one. It's our favorite part of the week again, and there are some especially tasty treats coming your way this time around. This week's edition of The Jam Jar [...]
We first featured Belgian Electro-Rockers Goose back in 2010 . Now we have an excuse to again as fellow Belgian producer, and one of our favourite artists of recent years Moonlight Matters has reMixes their new single, Real . Working with something other than your usual dance track has given Moonlight Matters free reign to try something a bit different. Anyone expecting Seba’s usual early 90s Pop-House anthem might be disappointed, but come to the track with an open mind and you’ll be delivered a satisfying, involving tune. A majestic slab of [...]
Belgian maestro, Moonlight Matters , strikes back with a new remix! While we keep waiting for his new material, he keeps teasing us with excellent remixes. This time he's reworking his fellow countryman Goose for the single "Real," which is taken from his forthcoming full-length "Control Control Control." Per usual, Sebastiaan Vandevoorde's remixes are always different and unique. This time we're facing an orchestral approach, and the result couldn't be better. If you already heard the original single, you're going to be surprised with this one. Download below the remix for free, and watch the video for [...]
Ahead of the international release of their third studio album 'Control Control Control', Belgian band Goose are giving away the Moonlight Matters remix of their new single 'Real' for free. Next Thursday (March 28) Goose will launch the second part of their whistle stop European tour and will be touching down in London where they will be playing alongside Vitalic at Koko in Camden, before heading back to the continent to play gigs in France, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy. Goose's album 'Control Control Control' is out April 14. [...]
There’s another hot night fast approaching for Londoners in March as Vitalic headlines a special Easter show at Koko in Camden. We we’re a bit disappointed by Vitalic’s last album, but he does put on a hell of a live show and the supporting talent is pretty insane. Yuksek , who’s set to be the highlight of the evening, with Etienne De Crécy , Kap Bambino , Goose , Dragonette and Blende . that’s some top electronic talent to be gracing one stage, in one night. And that’s [...]
New heat from Rich Espy, representing Member's Only, Starter 1.0 due out in March! Heat!
Due to the wonderful way the music industry works, Belgium electro-rock band Goose haven't actually released their latest long-play on our shores, but it has been released in the band's native Belgium where it scored an impressive number 1. The band's third album 'Control, Control, Control' is scheduled for a UK release on April 8, and will also see the band embark on whistle-stop tour of Europe as well as a show in London. Check out a new video for one of the album's tracks 'Lucifer'. GOOSE 2013 [...]
Des remixes, des covers, des edits, l'année 2012 a été tout aussi riche en titre original qu'en version intermédiaire, qui parfois dépasse le morceau qui l'a inspiré. Voici une sélection des remixes, covers et edits qui ont marqué l'équipe de We Are The Mascotte . N'hésitez pas à partager avec nous vos coups de coeur ! Sylvain 1. Goose - Synrise (Soulwax Remix) 2. Sinkane - Runnin' (Daphni Remix) 3. Bot'Ox - Basement Love (Pachanga Boys Remix) [...]
Kortrijk has some brilliant acts like Goose, Sx, Balthazar... Now two of those teamed up, as in Goose made a remix of the brilliant SX track "Gold". This is really a WOW-song=. The big synth sound from Goose made a threathing version of the feelgood, laidback vibe of "Gold". Very danceable and climax-y! Love it!
Es ist wieder Factory-Zeit! Am Samstag gibt es im Rosis ein Schaulaufen des Who-is-Who der internationalen Indielektro-Szene. Neben den I Heart Sharks und Bodi Bill , die sich jeweils an den Turntables versuchen, werden auch die Belgier von Goose nicht lumpen lassen und ihre Tanzfabrik eröffnen. Mit feinsten Gitarrenriffs und den derbsten Electrobässen wird dies ein Samstag, der euch noch lange mit Konfetti in den Haaren stecken bleiben wird. Und wir haben noch Freikarten für diesen Exzess! Einfach diesen Post auf der I [...]
Como habitual, por cá fica o resumo do que de mais importante se passou na minha página alternativa do Facebook. A semana foi forte em termos musicais e começou bem com um novo tema dos islandeses Sigur Rós, "Brennisteinn", tocado no Iceland Airwaves este ano. De seguida, altura para recordarmos os The Faint, na rubrica "Songs I Used to Love", com "The Conductor" (atenção à reedição de '
One of the best bands that Belgium has to offer Goose released their third studio album "Control Control Control" on October 12th after the previous two super successful LPs "Bring It On" und "Synrise" that won over our hearts and made them well known though out the whole world. Apart from making amazing music, they [...]
O du wunderschöner Herbst, Wie du die Blätter golden färbst, Deiner reinen Luft so klar und still, Noch einmal ich mich freuen will. So idyllisch uns Theodor Fontane den Herbst einst beschrieb, so farbenfroh wird er auch im November sein. Wir freuen uns sehr auf diesen Monat der grenzenlosen Freude. Und obwohl die Temperaturen niedriger, die Regentropfen häufiger und die Schnupfnase voller sein wird, haben wir die passenden Rezepte für einen Monat des inneren Frühlings. Diesen November präsentieren wir euch jeden Tag eine kleine Portion Lektüre zum hören und gewinnen. [...]
GOOSE is back! With their first single " Real ", they hinted that their new album "CONTROL CONTROL CONTROL!" would be more rocky and have a big live-feel but still with a party-esque vibe. 702s styled live video. Loved it! Second track "CONTROL" gives us some more information. Big beats combined with guitars and sure as hell a very big party live. 802s sounding repetitive beats and hooks (think Front 242) that make you addicted to the track in 5 seconds. Really nice job once again by our personal hero's. As you can read, we're not that subjective, but [...]
Depuis le temps que je les attendais, ils sont enfin de retour et en puissance. On savait que le quatuor Belge préparait un album, cela se concrétise enfin, tu peux dès à présent en écouter deux morceaux. Leur prochain LP est intitulé Control Control Control, il sortira le 12 octobre prochain. Grosse news concernant le groupe, ils ont travaillé sur le prochain album de Vitalic, j'ai bien hâte d'écouter ce que ça va donner. Goose - Control Goose - Real
Belgian band Goose is back! Not long after their second LP entitled "Synrise" was released, these guys now unveiled the first single from their third full-length album. Watch the live performance for "Control" directed by Pierre Debusschere. In case you missed it, listen to their previous new track called " Real ". Updated: here's an album minimix! It's entitled "Control Control Control".
Don’t let the fact that Bloody Beetroots is headlining fool you – the Hilltop Arena will be THE place to get your dubstep fix for the day. The range of dubstep DJs is wide, and will consist of everything from all-out grimey drops to more relaxed melodic wobbles. The stage also has some great wildcards thrown in that will surely mix things up, including live performance, drum and bass, and mashups. So when you are tired of hearing synth drop after synth drop over at the Main Stage, head down to Hilltop for a (literal) change of pace. [...]
