No Go-Go 07:10


Bryan Kessler has made a point of not toeing the line in terms of the sometimes mono-thematic world of electronic dance music. Hailing from Cologne, Kessler started his musical life as a lead singer in an indie band, before discovering the pleasures of the dancefloor for himself. Having released a number of superb tracks on Comeme, Numbers and Get Physical, he now drops a killer 5 tracker on hafendisko.

‘Such a Sweet Ability’ is a pure statement of Kessler’s philosophy - a spoken word vocal laying out his vision - underpinned by a throbbing, low slung techno groove.

‘No Go-GO’ also has a grimey, rock swing to its electronics, with a swung, jagged bassline and crisp, firing percussion. Kessler adds his unique vocals late in the track, heavily treated and moducalted for maximum effect.

‘Tender Me The Tenderness’ treads a similar vein - rough and ready electronics provide the backbone, with tripping, pounding drums maintaining the shape. This one is aimed squarely at the floor.

‘Don’t Be Dumb Pretend You’re Dumb’ employs heavy percussion and a deep, round kick for the dancers, before exploding into fizzing electronic busts of static - something like a carnival happening inside a broken television. Last up is another exquisitely titled track - ‘Tell

Tell Your Friends They Should Better Stop Talking’ - which slows the pace a little but still brings the heat. Off-kilter pulses and bleeps balance out the driving rhythm, while an euphoric synth stab phases in and out across the track.
