Made up of a holy trinity of Parisian electro, The Escargot Brothers are Guillaume Berg, Thee Mike B and Teki Latex, united by their love of forward-thinking club tunage and French food. A result of their will to spread the French underground sound to a global scale with their dancefloor selections means they've made us a mixtape featuring tracks from newcomers Sam Tiba, Canblaster, and French Fries, to the original stars of the '06 electro era, Bobmo, Strip Steve, Para One, Das Glow and Brodinski. Here the trio speak to us about foie gras, sock liners and how they do in Paris alongside an exclusive mix for us...
