Dazzle Drums - Meteor Shower/Express 4000

This Japanese duo have been making quite a name for themselves over the past few years, and this is their fifth release for King Street’s sub-label Nite Grooves.

“Who’s got a dark techy secret? Dazzle Drums do!” reads the hype sheet, and it’s certainly true to say this is a techier offering than you’d maybe expect from the pair. Meteor Shower is all about the big dark room drama, and makes interesting use of some very glacial, European-sounding synths. Express 4000 is equally big ’n’ dramatic, but this time with a little more house sash-ay to its big throbbing bassline and militaristic snares. Just a little, mind.

About: Nite Grooves hasn’t had a mention on here before I don’t think but it’s basically just another name for King Street, which is of course one of the best-established, best-loved and, well, best of all US house labels. Now click here to surf to their pages of web, whydontcha?
