Future Chaos by Bomb the Bass
Released: Sep 2008
Label: !K7 Records
Bomb the Bass' Tim Simenon made his name in the late '80s by bringing hip-hop's cut'n'paste techniques to acid house, and he spent the '90s exploring darker, dubbier sounds. After several years of silence, he returned in 2008 with this subdued collection of electro-pop songs fronted by singers you'd expect (Fujiya & Miyagi's David Best) and those you wouldn't (Mark Lanegan, Jon Spencer). His singers' voices fold surprisingly well into the mix, a porous bed of analog synths and acid bass; their growls and whispers make the perfect foil for Simenon's purring drum machines.
