Bleeping Sauce is the new live band project from esteemed Minus and Items&Things duo CLICK BOX who have teamed up with the highly talented Eli Iwasa & Marcos Taga. Presented here is a new EP from them on Meant that showcases their dynamic sound, it comes with three original tracks and a set of tasty remixes by Remote, Matt Walsh and Villanova.
Brazilians Marco A.S and Pedro Turra have been on top of the techno and minimal worlds since 2006 thanks to their inventive and abstract sounds on only the finest labels. This new project shows they have another feather to their bow and sees them explore a sinewy, lovably machine-made sound.
‘Sounds and Stories’ goes first and is a space-age bit of darkwave tech funk with layers of gurgling synths, stark drums and a cool female vocal that adds tons of punk attitude to proceedings. Andrew Weatherall would lap this sort of tune-up with its gothic disco vibes. ‘Set Time’ is another great bit of dark and dirty disco with searching synths, apocalyptic atmospheres, and purposeful, live-sounding drums. It squeals and shoots in many different directions at once as a corrugated bassline ties the whole thing together. Then comes ‘Cherry Green’ with more aloof sounding female vocals, 80s darkwave drums and rubbery guitar lines. It’s a fine bit of work that sounds like little else out there and is beautifully somber in mood.
First remixer Remote is a musical duo made up of Eric Guillanton and Seb Fouble, a pair recognized as one of the figureheads of the French electro scene. Their take on ‘Cherry Green’ is a filthy dirty, scuzzy and serrated synth-laden slo-mo electro track that will send the ‘floor into raptures.
Next up is Matt Walsh, the Brit famed for being a unique sonic craftsman who often DJs with Daniel Avery, is a Bugged Out regular and releases on Turbo and Phantasy Sound. His take on ‘Sounds and Stories’ is a moody late-night affair with dazzling synth stabs, cooing female vocals and swathes of lovely echo and reverb that lend the track a hazy, dreamy air.
The young duet of Parisian producers that is Villanova, of labels like No.19 Music & My Favorite Robot, goes last with a remix of ‘Cherry Green’ that is turbocharged and tumultuous with big drums, spaceship-like synths, bleepy melodies and generally manic robotic charm with an anthemic female vocal line up top.
With this release MEANT to introduce the world to what is sure to be an essential new project from the Click Box boys.
