‘Krokodil Love’ is her third mix, and sees her emerging as a serious solo MC (some would say against all odds). She takes the usual transnational route developed at Orties, blending her love of American gang rap with bouncy acid house and pulsating, four-to-the-floor techno beats overlaid with smooth, tense MC-ing in her native language.
Kincy and Antha have received their share of slack from the French media for their outlandish music videos and filthy-to-the-bone lyrics (in English, their titles translate to ‘The Biggest Whore Of All’, ‘Orgasm In Paris’ and ‘Thirsty For You’. Not quite Edith Piaf.) They hate humanity, hipsters and, most of all, they hate Paris – perhaps ironically, this has had little effect on their own conviction that they are la merde.

Whatever you think of the twins’ drugged out, hyper-sexualized posing and penchant for girl-on-girl action, there’s no denying that there’s more to their music than shock value. The twins have perfected that ‘foul-mouthed partygirl MC’ thing to a degree Ke$ha could only dream about, and their self-conscious stylization is strangely endearing, in that Europeans-copying-Americans kind of way. Their beats are pretty good too, once you get past the hundred and one ways Kincy and Antha are trying to distract you. They do a pretty good job of that too.
