Noiseshaper: "Satellite City"

img  Tobias

Like any intelligent business in this disastrous economy, Austrian-bred electro duo Noiseshaper is diversifying its focus and output. They’re laptop guys to begin with, thus there’s no possible fricking way they could be completely oblivious to what’s going on, or lack thereof, in the house scene, a fact that manifested itself in the past with the King Britt-tinged deep house of “Demons” on the Rough Out There album, a tune that finds a sequel in this album in “We Rock It,” runway-model-techno making odd but compelling bedfellows with Sammy Dread’s monumentally stoned Rastafarian flow.

Forget the dumb-cluck remix of “Kung Fu Fighting,” too – the pair are sounding big, as in huge, now, throwing haymakers at dub’s heavy hitters (“Big Shot” hasn’t got the crossover slam-dunkedness of Elan’s “Feel My Pressure,” but that was a special case anyway). Best of all, everything about this is big-label, from the sound to the songwriting to the guest vocal shots – it’s Teddybears possessed by Bob Marley.
