Boys Noize catapults himself into the summer with "Go Hard". It's not an order, but if you're into slam-dunking electro-techno-rave-disco hybrids then you may well live up to the title. "Excuse Me" pumps with an Altern-8 style riff while swaying with a hip-swaying breakbeat. The industrial strength "Inhale/Exhale" is much darker and mechanical in its stomping nature while the title track is a one long acid tweaking trap orgy. "Starwin" is a much more soothing disco funker with just a touch of the Starburst about it while "Push Em Up" ends on a very quick snappy ghetto session. Hard as nails.
"Ich" is one of the best tunes Boys Noize has done in years. Which is saying something, as each tune he makes is an electro masterpiece. Here we find it in the most capable hands of Jacques Lu Cont and DIM. The former anthemises it liberally with some beautiful harmonising on the robo-vox and just a hint of acid trickery while the latter adds a more psychedelic, Moroderesque arpeggiation to proceedings. And the top names don't stop there as Chromeo and Jimmy Edgar are on board to re-rub "What You Want". Here the former stretch their 80s electro boogie and talkbox vibes to the funkiest max while the latter takes things to an early 90s NYC club a la Danny Tenaglia. A truly faultless release.
