Nine short months ago Attaque released his explosive debut single Light Falls. The track barged it’s way onto the playlists and essential mixes of BBC Radio 1, and the world’s preeminent DJs stood back in awe asking ‘where the fuck did he come from?’ It devastated dancefloors across the globe and Mixmag made it their Tune of the Month declaring: ‘prepare to be pummelled.’
Two more massive singles followed, with Moderate becoming a worldwide smash. Remixes for ZZT, Bart B More and Japanese Popstars saw Attaque fill tastemaker charts and bookings all over soon followed.
Since the outset, Attaque was adamant that he wanted to get an album out and do it quick, no messing about, and make an almighty statement of intent. There’s no ostentatious guests, no PR gimmicks and definitely no masks; it’s just him, his machines and ten heads-down electronic powerhouses.
Indeed whilst pummelling is exactly what his unique concoction of electro and techno does, it’s Attaque’s distinctive sonic and innovative production that singles him out as an extraordinary talent. When Light Falls is an hour of forward thinking electro and techno perfection. An album as potent on the train as it is in a nightclub, it takes you on the remarkable journey that this special producer has had so far.
Through the cacophony of driving electronics in Shine, Sensor and The End, the album climaxes with the chants and industrial echoes of Shadows, a haunting and progressive twist on his sound, leading one to only imagine what will come next. And noone is more excited than us at Bad Life.
