Boomkat Product Review:
Stadium rock and techno? Not the first two genres I would push together for a date, but Allien and ex-beau Apparat have not only pushed them together, but let them make love and have highly deformed offspring. The two headed scamp that is ‘Turbo Dreams’ starts simply enough, usual choppy techno fare, but before you’re even aware what’s happening the triumphant poodle-rock guitar kicks in. I’m just hoping there’s a video for this, maybe with The Darkness guesting, while Allien and Apparat tinker away on their electronics the mischievous pub rockers can bound about the stage amongst a barrage of pyrotechnics and pomp. On the flipside though we have no such joy, and we’re back to the techno, just techno; Pier Bucci laying down a funky upbeat mix and Marc Houle taking us into the realms of minimal Acid techno… you’re still thinking about that stadium rock/techno crossover aren’t you? It works, really!
