HOOOO. Caught a glimpse of the Boys Noize Starter EP on myspace a few days ago and let me tell you. Let, me, tell, you.
Everything you know and love from Boys Noize is there. The techno organ, the vague vocal, the wwaaaahhhh, and the wwwWWAAHHHHH. ‘Jeffer‘ kicks you into a funky filter rhythm before dropping the shuffling organ riff which eventually builds into the wild-massive main melody. This song has just enough weird to let you completely cut the music and just as people start scratching their heads, start Jeffer by slowly fading in on the intro rhythm. The reaction won’t be instant, but just make sure you bring the volume up to ‘Party Level™’ before the 50 second mark. Fire on the roof.
The Twelves, what more can I say about them that I haven’t already? Legendary techno-disco-pop born in Rio. This little gem was off of a 2009 Vectra GT promo disc featuring a few reworks of A-Ha’s classic ‘Take on Me’. Obviously, the only one worth beans was the Twelves track. Listen up.
