vinyl thoughts for an analogue life

We’re Taking Control – Warriors of the Dystoteque ft. Pop Will Eat Itself

Jun 25, 2017

Format: 10″ transparent vinyl

A brand new super-limited edition 10″ from the electro geniuses WotD. Mid 80s early hip hop meets mid-late 80s house and modern electronica in a fabulous fusion deserving it’s own mad professor screaming “IT LIVES!” as thunder roars overhead. This is gloriously old school and has deep veins of authenticity thanks to the collaboration with electronic dance pioneering legends Pop Will Eat Itself. Close your eyes and those of us of a certain age will feel a heady rush of musical nostalgia…but this is no synth-wave wannabe, this is a colossus of pure electronic dancery, a synthesized oversized Kaiju of hard drums and trip beats swatting at the aeroplanes of conventionality. Simple on one level, almost New Order like lyrics and vocals…this is typically WotD in that there is so much more happening underneath. From sublime cubase-esque tone patterns to 70s analogue synth arpeggios. If you have an appreciation for electronica and skilfully built tracks them this is one for you.

Side A has the original mix plus a remix, whilst Side B has an extended Robertson remix.

Ridiculously rare but a must have for fans of this truly outstanding musical collective.

Score: 10/10

Thought: Ambassador you are spoiling us with these fly beats and old school aural forms
