Scratch Massive never do what is expected of them, and nobody’s complaining! It was already the case in 2003 with “Enemy & Lovers”, the LP that marked their birth and showcased electric guitars as well as a decidedly rock style at a time when electronic music was all the rage. In 2007, once the return of rock was acknowledged by all, the duo ventured off towards new horizons with “Time”, a fearless free dive into ten years of techno fascination !
Still set in their expectation-defying ways, this time around Scratch Massive have delved into the past and “Nuit De Rêve” (Dream Night), their new album, is like travelling back in time to the 84-86 era, right at the pounding heart of new wave.
With amazing featurings as Jimmy Somerville, D. Agust from GusGus, Koudlam or Chloe, “Nuit De Rêve” is simply a somptuous and melancholic album in the noblest sense of the word, which stems more from nostalgia for a state of mind than for an era in which experimentation and the first synthesisers changed the concept of pop forever.
The perfect record for our times then: a terribly 2012 album that takes place in the 80s!
