Product Description

Intense, cut-up electronics, technoid R&B and avant-wonky deconstructions on the 11th album from Mouse On Mars, which comes courtesy of Modeselektor's Monkeytown label. Created using their own custom-built software, which they developed for their live Pandaemonium project (in which they manipulate the output of an orchestra in real-time), Parastrophics is a royal headf*ck - just when you think you've got a handle on one of its squelched-out grooves, you realise you've actually no idea; this is 3-dimensional music, coming at you from all sides, its funk persistent and undeniable but in a permanent state of flux. One way or t'other, it's the most `floor-friendly MoM record we've heard in a while: bear witness to the cartoonish techno-boogie of `Wienuss', or `They Know Your Name', which sounds like some kind of bastard hash of Gwen Stefani's `Hollaback Girl' and Roman Flugel's `Geht's Noch', while `Baku Hipster' is an inspired MIA parody that's crying out to be exercised in the club. The core of the album - tracks like `Syncroptians', `Cricket', `Imatch' - sound like Jan St Werner and Andi Toma's take on Hud Mo-style hip-hop/R&B fantasia, completely bonkers but totally on-point. Seriously, this duo cram more incident into a single track than most producers manage in a career - sometimes this tendency is maddening, but for the most part it's exhilarating. Certainly if you've got enough caffeine in your bloodstream, then Parastrophics is gonna blow you way.
