By codotusylv on Wednesday 13 March- Permalink. It seems that you had to search among instrumental works if Diskoboy - Abstrackt Keal Agram - Discographie wanted to find the best French albums for in the Coming On Strong (Beatmasters 7) - The Shamen - Different Drum affiliated category.
Monopsone :: :: buy this record. This is definitely another universe. If you want to find the roots of this duo Lionel Pierres and Tanguy Destable from Morlaix Brittanyyou first have to look into noisy music, then in electronic sounds, and finally, quite naturally, into the works of DJ Shadow and more recently Prefuse Of course, this stream of influences is to be felt more strongly in the whole of the album, a gathering of instrumental tracks halfway between electronica and hip-hop, as short and addictive as songs, and each time coloured differently.
Here and there, scattered along the way, you may find what Abstrackt Keal Agram kept from their first experiences, the holy trinity of rock : guitar, bass guitar and the drums. The hip-hop feeling evidently stems from the use of samples especially a few quotessome beats and scratches, performed by DJ Dude and DJ Snookut. All of these result in tracks sometimes agreeable, often real good. And the whole is sensitively and fluidly organised, by the two men who obviously learnt how to make an album correctly.
In theory, as well as in your ears, this formula is nothing new, not even in France. However Diskoboy - Abstrackt Keal Agram - Discographie final result is stronger, more sober and easy going than a record by DJ Cam for example. A sure sign of their popularity since this album is out is their performance at the Transmusicales in Rennes, a major French festival for worldwide musicians, and as they start having international fame, they have found another label than Monopsone, their promising step stone into the musical world.
