The Brothers are back with a track that’s distinctly them but still manages to feel both new and interesting. I’d describe it as rather laid back and not as complex as many of their most well known tracks. With a first single like this, my interest for their upcoming studio album has increased a lot.
A day late, I know! Last week was crazy, and in the end I just had no time to get this post written. It was an interesting week, either way, and the track this week has the dubious honor of being selected not because it’s amazing but because it’s not as terrible as what this group has produced in the last 15 years. The Prodigy is one of the best electronic acts of all time, but the last few albums have been big disappointments. This track, however, I did find very enjoyable, and the heavy breakbeat is a big part of that.
So, I guess there’s no use for me to deny I like mid-90s techno a lot? I had no plans on including this track, or Fluke at all to be honest, as a track of the week, but for some reason I happened to listen to it and that made me remember just how great it is. There’s still great electronic music being produced, but nothing quite like this.
The track this week is special to me in more ways than one. First of all, it’s just a great mid-90s techno track, but it was also a very prominent part of Wipeout 2097 which is one of my favorite games for the original Playstation. The big beat nature of this track means that it has great drums, but it also features heavy sampling of Run DMC which is very well done.
I almost managed to miss posting this week’s track, due to the fact that I thought i had already posted it. Well, crisis averted! The track this week is from a duo that I sometimes catch myself thinking “I wonder what it is I like about these guys” about, and the I put on one of their tracks and it all comes back to me. The track I chose is not one of their bigger hits, but to me it’s one of their better.
