About this item
As regular customers can attest, we love a bit of shamanic shit here at Piccadilly, and this latest dose of ritualistic rhythm has me ready to dust off the DJ Froglicker moniker. After a couple of years spent honing his new sound in the studio, French producer Bambounou leaves the mainroom maulers of his 50 Weapons days behind. The music on Parametr Pureskja has a strong and original characteristic which fits exactly DISK’s style: Crisp beats interlocked in edgy grooves shaping a hypnotising drive with a dark tension. Opener "Dernier Metro" fuses the off kilter rattle of organic percussion with eerie synth tones, locking us into a late night mushroom ritual. Bambounou continues his pagan preoccupation with A2's "Kosovo Hardcore", syncing a swinging, lopsided drumbeat with the disorienting melodies of clockwork chimes. Over on the B-side the relentless pulse of "VVVVV" pushes the dance floor ever onwards, entangling one and all in its infectious repetition. Three techno-tribal sounds for psychedelic dancers - buy on sight!
Patrick says: France's Bambounou lands at DISK with a trio of mesmeric, shamanic club cuts, aimed as far from the mainroom as is humanly possible. Dark, tense and way off kilter, this is A-grade mushroom shit.
