Echoboy : Scene 30

'Scene 30'[/b] is a rhythmic collision of austere electronic lifestyle music and minimalist beats...

If indeed the post-Britpop '90s have their parallels in the post-punk '80s then we should be happy. While the mid-'90s pop detritus is happily ebbing away, an increasing number of oddballs and mavericks are emerging from the decade's wreckage. If Badly Drawn Boy's lucrative deal with XL hadn't made that glowingly apparent, then the rock biz attention currently being lavished upon the enigmatic Echoboy might provide further proof.





'Scene 30' is a rhythmic collision of austere electronic lifestyle music and minimalist beats which might lack the playful charm of the Discordia single, but makes up for it in sheer, straight-faced, Teutonic power. The door between the bedroom and the dancehall is open. Last one inside's a rotten egg.
