Boomkat Product Review:
Amsterdam’s Electric Party pack more wobbly bounce to the ounce than your average waver in a strong comp of their hard-to-find 1982 output - RIYL Saâda Bonaire, Lifetones, Material
Drawn from their sole full release, ‘Work’ as well as compilation and demo cuts that have surfaced in recent years, ‘Play’ frames the four-piece at their low-key funkiest, echoing disco-not-disco and new wave trends from New York and London in nine svelte tunes built around synths, bass guitar, puckered vox and snaky Roland drum machines.
40 years after they were made, the tunes surely hold up to spec for the retro-futurists with a strong haul of that sits between many poles, variously taking in the lilting dub-rock of ‘Caribe’ on a Saâda Bonaire-meets-ACR tip, and what sounds like a funked up Nine Circles in ‘Tension,’ along with a freakish adjunct to Funkadelic in the alien voices and splashy fonk of ‘Words From The Underground,’ with a killer cut of YMO-esque new wave flush with cod-Eastern tones in ‘Imagine A Blind Man Dreaming.’
