Dubmood - Ma Version
DATA029 - 15th June 2013 - CD & Digital
The first single from their album Machine released 6 months later in January 2014 on Data Airlines. With the single comes an animated video teaser by demoscene hero Bob Nimbe, a B-side and two remixes. Both the music and visuals confirm the dark and vintage-futuristic turn that the group has taken since their start over a decade ago. This is cold 8-bit blended with warm analogue synths, groovy live drums and anxious French vocals. Breathing life into a genre hampered by cliché video game references and candy-coated melodies, Dubmood's music instead chooses to pay homage to the darker synthpop of Kraftwerk and dance punk of LCD Soundsystem.
