Pleasurekraft feat. Green Velvet
Great Stuff Recordings
It's time for something a little bit special.
As if a track from the Washington DC / Stockholm combo Pleasurekraft wasn't a warped enough affair, the groovy tech duo have enlisted the help of the master of all things bugged out and kooky, Green Velvet, for their latest release. It may seem like an unexpected collaboration at first, but when you consider their shared love of quirky, unusual sounds and vocals, the idea starts to seem like a stroke of genius.
No remixes, no B-sides; just a slice of bubbling electronic funk that hits all the right spots. Green Velvet's inimitable, mind-bending vocals meeting Pleasurekraft's distinctive vocal treatment is a recipe for a seriously twisted excursion, his camp rap twisted through pitchshifting and ruthless cutting and slicing. The track builds slowly through waves of chugging bass and snappy beats, building to a frenzied climax with one of Pleasurekraft's trademark guttural synth lines carving its way through the groove amidst frenetic horn blasts, squelchy FX and sassy cuts from the vocal. The only complaint? It's all over way too soon and you're left manically searching for the rewind/repeat button..
Addictive, mischievous and at times downright bizarre; this is the sound of two acts with a penchant for weirdness and grooviness combining in freaky synergy for an explosive result.
