This is pushing my buttons this morning. Mysterious Frenchie Sebastien ‘Holy Strays’ Forrester is back with a little disc of his future techno experimental pop weirdness. This time around he’s mixing the playful organic modern electronic stylings you’d expect from the likes of Clark or Actress with a post-driftstep drone’n’choogle and a pinch of some kind of Haxan Cloak-esque morphing future-techno darkness for a single track which takes up both sides of this 33rpm platter. There’s a crisp bounce to some of the beats that’s reminding me of Four Tet in places too, especially his stuff with Burial.
There’s some wailing effect-drenched vocals that are very Euro-dance but the simple, drifty melodies simple, smart beats that keep on coming. On the flip side things get quite chilled and move in a smooth techno direction with cut up, submerged vocal snippets. It’s an interesting and cerebral bit of late-night dark dance with diverse influences and snappy hooks. I like it. I do wish people would stop putting out 33rpm 7”s though, I think singles should play at 45 really. It confuses me when they don’t.
