Android Cartel – Tattle Tale Nightlife EP
The hype sheet has this down as techno, but I'd say tech-house was at least equally fitting a description, especially in the current climate (see Pig & Dan review, below). Nightlife rides a chugging, rolling rhythm with a male vocal that sounds like it's saying 'LSD, well well' but probably isn't. Tattle Tale Room is in a similar kinda vein, a little bit tougher perhaps but still not enough so to frighten off house peeps, while To The Rescue is a tuff, drummy and echo-y affair with a vocal that may or may not be a heavily-treated lift from Happiness Is Just Around The Bend*… actually, again it probably isn't but you get the idea.
A solid bet if your floors like it a little tougher and more driving. I believe there's also a remix EP doing the rounds but I – sob! – didn't get sent that…
Out: This week
