Boomkat Product Review:
Always a fertile ground for musicians, silent films have long provided an artistic canvas for frustrated soundtrack composers - with the likes of Jeff Mills and Moroder getting to grips with Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis' whilst Phillip Glass took on 'Dracula'. The latest group to get in on the celluloid shindig is French house duo 'Chateau Flight', whose soundtrack for 'Les Vampires' (the 1915 film from Louis Feuillade) gets a proper release after its original composition for a screening of the work earlier this year. Clocking in at forty minutes and ranging along the spectrum from krautrock frayed beats and analogue workouts, through to progtastic breakdowns and laid-back house excursions, 'Les Vampires' happily exists on its own terms. Opening with plug-hole synths, the music soon introduces a guitar on repeat that provides a clear focal point for the vocal cries and drugged beats that begin to lap around your ears with serious menace. Slowly evolving into a well oiled house beast, Chateau Flight do well to keep the sense of impending malice pregnant in the air - as spaced expanses are punctuated by juddering breakbeats and belching silicon for a soundtrack that gets you longing for some monochrome accompaniment. Bloody hell!
