Album Review: Delorean - 'Subiza' (True Panther Sounds)

A new era for mainstream dance music?

Album Review: Delorean - 'Subiza' (True Panther Sounds)

7 / 10 Will Lee Evans ever get funny? And will cheesy house music ever become properly credible? Eternal questions, but Spain’s Delorean resolutely answer the last. With one foot in Manumission and the other in Delphic, they do for mainstream chav dance what New Order did for Krautronica in the ’80s – hook its bouncy electronic pianos and soul singer loops to undeniably uplifting pop tunes with an echo-chamber elegance. They’re called wankery chill-out names like ‘Endless Sunset’ and ‘Infinite Desert’ but are elevated above their base genre and boring titles by the general air of Animal Collective-gone-raving-down-Pacha. Almost – almost – enough to get us on a podium.
