Make bodies and crowds dance. That’s the focal point of the hectic music by Birdy Nam Nam, a DJ collective that has thrice been crowned world champion of turntablism since their self-titled debut album in 2005. After an explosive concert in 2009, the three electro hotheads Lil’ Mike, Crazy B, and DJ Need are making their grand return to Montreux this year. Without DJ Pone this time, but with a fourth record on the turntable, Dance or Die. Winners of the electronic revelation prize at the 2010 Victoires de la Musique, these French artists continue to explore their groove through hip-hop, funk, and soul influence, by torturing their tables, manipulating their samples, and scratching their vinyls. These night owls have lost none of their ardor. They take flight in the desire to loosen up the most recalcitrant bodies.
