Boomkat Product Review:
Second twelve from this pairing in 2002, and its another winner. Where ‘We Electric’ relished the synthetic nature of its own construction, here viciously funky acoustic drums break into a more tender, albeit edgy space. Sylvie still sounds like a woman not to be messed with, but the highlight of this tune is the overall arrangement and composition, detonating fuzzed bottom end, those drums, and impressive, melodic synths. Back with a more sequenced feel on ‘Mad Zen’, this is electropop for clubs du jour, excellent spacey noises over a bubbling riddim track and chasm deep, throaty vocal effects add to the mayhem. ‘Street Life’ is corruscating, unremitting no wave, where a blank look and some proper punk rock attitude relishes its uneasy contract with machines. Bpitch rocks on into 2003, after an absolutely smashing year that’s seen the likes of Smash TV, Kero, Modeselektor and TokTok seldom far from our decks and its clear, there’s no stopping them..
