OG Aussie techno act FSOM (Future Sound of Melbourne) meet pivotal Sydney artist Andy Rantzen (Pelican Daughters, Itch-E & Scratch-E) on a ‘90s rave tip
The bolshy ’93 techno roll of ‘Track 6’ brings a solid flavour of Melbourne’s underground rave scene at the point where it evolved from scuzzy clubs to bigger rooms. Trust its hypnotic chords and muscular flow still does the biz 25 years later. Andy Rantzen meanwhile supplies the darkroom canter of ‘Harmonic Eye’, taken from his 1999 solo album ‘The Blue Hour’ and bridging the gap between Pelican Daughters’ industrial sleaze and contemporary fetish vibes to get dancers bucking off the walls, speakers and whoever’s in proximity.
