The Anakronic Electro Orkestra

Anakronic Electro Orkestra's a monster that's got klezmer deep in it's beat-crazy electronica house DNA. This is serious stuff. Well worth the listen.

I haven't been able to scrounge up much English language info on them, other than that their recent album "The Yiddish Part" is available for electronic download through the usual sources (including Amazon and iTunes) and that they have a new single, featuring klezmer hip-hop accordionist SoCalled, that's associated with the French Nu Juwish Music collective.

Here's their bio (in French):
L'avenir de la musique Klezmer: ANAKRONIC ELECTRO ORKESTRA
La musique fleurit là où on l'attend pas. Qui aurait pu prédire que l'expérience la plus novatrice et originale française d'electro klezmer viendrait du Sud Ouest, le pays du cassoulet, du rugby, de Zebda, et maintenant d'Anakronik Electro Orkestra.
