Rotterdam’s Elitechnique present their debut album on Clone Records' Loft Supreme Series.
The duo (aka Remco de Jong and Florentijn Boddendijk) has spiced up their
already quirky take on space disco with even more oddball fun and cinematic
grandezza. Their admiration for spaced-out soundtrack obscurities from the 60s
and 70s is in full swing throughout the eight album tracks. „Intrusion“ sounds
like a long-lost soundtrack to an equally forgotten 70s flick and is less
concerned with the dancefloor than with evoking vivid mental images of car
chases and beautiful people surrounded by stylish 70s design. „Grand Entrance,“
the album’s aptly titled opener sets the tone with lush strings and symphonic
atmosphere, before the duo takes you through low-slung sequencer disco
(„Intruder“ and "Hotel Cosmos"), laid back summer boogie („Rooftop“)
and more introspective tracks („Nightporter“ and „Private Beach“) before
closing with the irresistibly haunting piano-laden „Nettovoyage.“ Great stuff.
