C2C, "Tetra" (Universal Republic Records)

Get ready to dance. A lot.

"Tetra," the debut album from French foursome C2C, is a multigenre, beat-driven adventure that feels good throughout all 14 tracks.

C2C is a turntable group made up of 20syl, DJ Greem, DJ Pfel and DJ Atom. They've crafted songs that feel soulful ("Happy"), energetic ("Delta," "The Beat") and eerie ("Give Up the Ghost"). "Because of You" is Gorillaz-esque and "Genius" is oh-so-fun, as is "Who Are You," which samples The New Birth's "You Don't Have to Be Alone."

"Le Banquet" even weaves in a speech from Ronald Reagan -- and it works.

"Tetra" is flavorful and upbeat -- it's hard not to jump around to these beats. C2C has meshed a sound that is wild, but still consistent.

Now dance.
