CHEMICAL REACTION

NME.COM' s representative is one of the chosen few to hear a selection of tracks from the provisionally-titles 'Chemical Four'...

The CHEMICAL BROTHERS premiered a selection of new material at the second of their highly exclusive ‘GLINT’ parties last Saturday night (December 16).

At the party, which took place at the bar El Dorado’s in West London,Tom and Ed unveiled a number of new tracks – including one which has been circulated on white label to a few key DJs under the working title ‘Balearic Techno’.

NME.COM was at the party, and can reveal the new material premiered sounded less trancey than some of the tracks on previous album ‘Surrender’, with extra emphasis on the percussion to give a more tribal edge. However, the material still retains the pair’s signatory production sound.

The dance duo’s set was similar to the one performed at the recent Bugged Out! Weekender, and included a new remix of acid house classic ‘Smokebelch’ by The Sabres Of Paradise, Hatiras current club smash ‘Spaced Invader’ and the now-timeless ‘Jaguar’ by DJ Rolando.

NME.COM understands this was intended to be the last ‘Glint’ for the immediate future. As previously revealed on NME.COM, the pair are now concentrating on recording their fourth album, which is going under the working title ‘Chemical 4’.
