Larionov & St. Theodore - Thunderstrike EP
Craigie Knowes - CKNOWEP 27
They say that the third time's a charm and that is certainly the case here as Larionov & St. Theodore link up for their third collaborative EP. The last two years have seen them impress on Rotterdam Electronix and Snuff Cuts and now it is Craigie Knowles who comes calling. As ever these tracks make extensive use of the Roland SH-101 and TR-808, which lends a cold, futurism feeling to the jack hammer electro they produce. The bass is thunderous, the synths are strobe lit, the whole thing a sensory firing excursion to the edges of an electro wonder world.
