Boomkat Product Review:
Great sliver of electro-pop audnuss from Belgium’s Dr C. Stein (aka Dutch minimal waver Hanjo Erkamp ov Doxa Sinistra and Ende Shneafliet), whom you may remember from the Selected Works 1983-1988 collection released by Jj funhouse / Trumpett in late 2017.
Interstellar Funk’s Artificial Dance label is behind this one, giving both sides a super crisp 45rpm cut to best present their fine binds of stepping electro with slippery accordion (?) lines and mad vocoder in nervy, sprung dynamics.
The A-side’s La Bombe Plastique (Original) works at a clean-heeled 140bpm clip, balancing the speed with more romantic synth and vocal cadence, whereas the B-side’s Edit is slower, working at 126bpm in a more spaciously timed and kerned rearrangement.
