Eric Michel aka K21 made his first steps in electronic music in 1993 on a Roland TB-303 and a TR-606, after a long past in a metal band as a lead guitarist. Since then, he never stopped producing beats and performing livesets. This techno-dinosaur is also a good friend of the Anozer team for over 10 years, and the projects realized together are numerous... The first connections were established through ?Eliptik Corporation' created in 1998, which is the ancestor of Anozer.
Lo-Fi Lovers reflects the different influences of K21 ? an interesting cocktail where Eric's modern techno and minimal meet his metal and hardcore past! Once assembled together, the different components of the track create a really unique sound full of contrasts. The Lo-Fi grain, the ?rock-band-like' drums, the dissonances, the de- pitched frequencies, the off-beat percussions and this particular cold groove, create a very special atmosphere... Let's call it ?vampire funk'!
The original track was remixed by Spanish techno-duo Salva and David, better known under the name Attemporal. Heavy and cyclical, tensed and loud, cold without being dark, this piece is a true techno-power-plant. A nuclear one. After his excellent ?Mental Bright' released previously on Anozer, Ludovic Vendi strikes back with a typical ?Vendi-styled' bomb! Full of toms and percs of all kinds, his interpretation of Lo-Fi Lovers distinguishes by its perpetual hypnotic groove. Last remix was made by French producer Romain Rouffiac aka Remain. Very different from the 2 other remixes and from the original mix, his contribution to the release is characterized by the typical ?Parisian-electro-rock-distorted' bassline... Definitely a ?love it or hate it' ? opinions are going to differ drastically about this one! Track 5 is a DJ tool which consists of a loop with the vocal sample of the original track. Make your own interpretation of the shouted mooings/bellowings you are hearing!
