Electronic Youth ‘Beetle Juice EP’

Electronic Youth / Beetle Juice EP


This Is Recordings / Released September 2011


What does it sound like?

RustemRustem and Leisuregroove give us a taster of their new Electronic Youth project via Sander Kleinenberg’s imprint, and deliver two heavy doses of tech dancefloor stuff. First up Beetle Juice‘s hypnotic dubby groove, vocal layers and clean acid tones arrive, marked with vocal accents, guiding us to a larger than expected breakdown before we thump back to Earth with a beat marking out something kind of like Wiggle nodding to prog. Then we move to the altogether more runaway In the Air, a track that while boasting soulful song samples retains a driving rhythm made even more persuasive by the size of those kick drums.

Where would I dance to it? 

Certainly one that should be doing the rounds in the boxes of people like Adam Shelton, this is one for fans of what Britain seems to do remarkably well.

What highlights can I expect to hear? 

While the depth and textures of the A-side are pleasing at times you need something a little bit rawer, as such we’ll go for the pretty stomping but nonetheless funk-tinged In The Air. Not that it was an easy decision, mind.

Why should I pay for it? 

Because you’ll enjoy it.

Where can I buy it?
