Xander Harris, not to be confused with the fictional character, has been a busy lad lately, and since we didn’t manage to find time to review his previous album last week it’s come to me to say a few words about this one on Desire, ‘Snow Crash’. Here the synthmeister is twiddling his way through some bright and bouncy cosmic disco with horror soundtrack touches - think Carpenter or Zombi but with the punch, clarity and energy of Lindstrom or Ceephax’s amazing recent horror-synth-laden 3LP ‘Cro Magnox’.

Anton Maiovvi and Umberto spring to mind as far as similar contemporary stuff goes, especially when he slows the pace a little on tracks like the chilly ‘Raven’, and overall the second side has more of a chilled out techno vibe rather than the energetic disco/electric influence which defines the A side. Fans of French synth-house types like Kavinsky are bound to be seduced by this too - the essence of what’s happening over the course of the album is that Harris is taking horror synths and tarting them up with a variety of slick beat work for dancefloor use. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it!
