Boomkat Product Review:
It’s hard to believe it’s been a decade since Akufen’s defining hiccup house anthems set clubs alight with their shortwave radio chops and bass-heavy nods to French house. Since 2004 Marc Leclair has been all but silent, but on ‘Battlestar Galacticlown’ you’d hardly believe he’d been away. All the elements are still intact, the delightfully eclectic platter of samples, chirping melodies and hocking glitches but find themselves offset with instrumental clips, from aching strings to the humble piano. We even get an opportunity to hear Leclair take things a little deeper with ‘You Like Red Beans! (We Go Together)’ which is maybe his most downplayed jam to date.
