The opener Keep It Coming embraces an 80's retro feel utilising a disco guitar lick and features Brun on vocals. Another Way continues more of the same 80s feel featuring old skool electro style handclaps, a catchy synth hook and this time features Richard Davis (a signee to Swayzak's 240 Volt label) on vocals.
My House has a dubby feel to it with drum beats featuring dub influenced effects using lots of echos and delays. Richard Davis features again on vocals and sings atop a melodic bassline and plenty of techy stabs. Snowblind has a retro 70s feel, sounding like a techno take on the Doors sound featuring a bluesy piano riff, pounding bass that hits on every downbeat and plenty of retro percussion to give it that classic feel.
8080 features a shuffling beat heavy on percussive elements, massive bass line, acid stabs, the second phase features hard hitting bass drums and a rich percussive break which continues for the duration of the tune. Finally the album closes out with the dark and downtempo tones of The Long Night. A long electronic sweep introduces the tune before a Massive Attack style drum beat kicks in accompanied by a melodic bass riff. Lush spoken words vocals for both tunes are taken care of by Mathilde Mallen.
Not being much of a techno fan, it was a surprise to hear this album - deep, dark tones accompanied by techno's tough four to the floor kick drum beats and vocals thrown in on top. The live instrumentation gives the album a nice warm and organic feel, whilst the vocalists add another dimension to the music.
