rocktronica




Heard this at the hairdresser's the other day, instantly grabbed by its combo of minimalist and maximalist, early-90s slamming and EDM overblare.

Turns out to be five years old, and by a indie-dance duo whose other output looks to be a misguided hash of electro-house and rap

Did they stumble on perfection just the once?

Takes skill and taste to make something so batteringly brain-evacauting; to sustain the feeling of fixatedness without it becoming boring and benumbing.

Pounding. But it could do with a big, ***-off drop about 2/3s of the way thru. Shurely, the silence makes the noise louder.
