Boomkat Product Review
**Upfront & exclusive release from hotly tipped Industrial Funk project, White Car, on the excellent Hippos In Tanks label!** Having already collaborated with Giallo exponents Gatekeeper, and had a video pieced together by Daniel 'Oneohtrix' Lopatin, White Car is the latest buzz project to emerge from the hugely promising Hippos In Tanks label and features an addictive leather trousered passion for the EBM/Industrial sound of DAF, Nitzer Ebb, or Liasons Dangereuses with an incredibly canny eye for detail and a taste for sinister gothic splendour. Like Jamal Moss's Medusa edit series (dedicated to the underage Goth/Pop/Rock club), they're inspired by a virulent strain of European Industrial music that infected the Chicago club scene through the '80s and whose influence can be felt right through the catalogues of Trax and Mathematics. With the benefit of hindsight, they've burned off any excess to leave a sulphuric residue of disaffected vocals, sledgehammer snares and sweaty chested synths, efficiently recalling the frisson of sexual energy and electronic futurism which ignited Chi-town night spots. We couldn't recommend this release any higher to fans of Chris Carter, Ministry, Jamal Moss or Amyl Nitrate.
