about

Taken from upcoming sophomore album, B, the Buenos Aires / Bombay EP showcases this contrast. The teutonic rock of debut album, A, that made eyes at Morricone in frenetic style, has become altogether more ambitious. The rudimentary techno flourishes of inspirational leader, Romain Turzi meet the taut, menacing prowess of his band, Reich IV, in a project with global designs.

Buenos Aires is a thrilling demonstration of the dextrous nature of Romain’s compositions. Layers and layers of trance sounds interlock perfectly in a track that manages to be both euphoric and disturbing. The pace lessens only for a moment before returning with a glorious violin solo that adds unexpected grace to a brutal dance track.

This solo becomes the departure point for the fresh rework by Romain and labelmate Sébastien Tellier. Ethereal yet punchy, the breakneck pace of before is replaced by hip-hop ho’s that bounce alongside the breathy vocal caresses provided by Sébastien.

Bombay builds upon the spirit of movement that pervades the whole record. The stirring words of controversial pastor Jeremiah Wright reverberate as the band fire up their instruments. Guitars infused with delicate Eastern touches rest upon a swirling bedrock of pulsating drums and atmospheric synths. Haunting yet rousing at every turn, this track is drenched in the sweat and energy of the live arena.

The Thriller in Bombay remix by crazy Pan European Recording protégé, Koudlam, is like a slow motion soundtrack to Aladdin’s cave. A bewildering magic carpet ride that has one foot in 1983 and the other in eternity.
