Kicking things off, “Call the Doctor” focuses down to simple efficiency: digital sirens, pitched-down vocals, and tooth-rattling subs demonstrate that Curses hasn’t forsaken his love for bass or the brutality his fans have come to expect. “String Static” combines big reverb and ominous atmospheres with a bounce sure to move the crowd. In keeping with the “not for the chillout room” theme, Curses asked his friend Riton (Ed Banger) to lend his inimitable touch to a remix of “Call the Doctor.” Never one to err on the side of moderation or modesty, Riton takes Curses’ banger to another level, upping the tempo and chopping vocals on top of frenzied crescendos. This one was definitely designed for the world’s most massive dancefloors. “Pompopo” winds things down, complimenting Riton’s rampage with a lengthy groover that’s sure to become a secret weapon for savvy DJs.
While sharing space in the Throne of Blood Studio, Populette’s Andrew Potter and long-time friend Brian Hersey started making music together to explore their own weird ways, fondness for left-leaning techno, and adolescent memories of genre-less dance music. The product of this collaboration is a massive collection expansive, free-form jams which have been tweaked and freaked for maximum impact.
Captivated by the demos she was hearing when she dropped by their shared studio space to work on her solo material, DJ/vocalist/producer Kim Ann Foxman (ex Hercules & Love Affair/Need Want Records) jumped into the fold, lending her production and vocal skills on the title track “Animals.” The song serves as an apt introduction to PP and builds upon Kim Ann’s recent vocal turns for the likes of Maya Jane Coles and Snuff Crew.
Compiled from a series of live takes, the Animals EP crystalized slowly over the last year. Consequently, Pleasure Planet’s debut offers three distinct but complimentary visions of Andrew and Brian's utopia and serves as a precursor for a longer follow-up record already in production.
