*straight up foul and very essential gear from a galaxxy unknown... sleep on this at your peril!* 

TPPM and AtB aka Mr fLooDs are turning on the research machine taking the listener on a extraordinary tripped out ecstatic journey through timespace where spirits of Liaisons Dangereuses Radio and the legendary Boccaccio are summoned with inspiration in order to find a New Beat Soul for the 21st Century. 

What was born and initially exploded in 1987, went supernova (in Belgium) in 1988, declared dead in 1989, was slow and initially all about atmosphere with industrial strength beats - the main form of rhythmic propulsion being the pounding kick and heavy snare. The sound was mainly instrumental and when there was lyrical content, it often became more about slogans and giving commands. On „Decadent Skies“ An Anomaly bring back the atmosphere, beats, the essence off the beaten commercial track, and combine it with the knowledge of tomorrow.  

Enjoy the ride!


Rush Hour Store Record of the week W13:

One particular record has been punishing our  speakers for a solid week now: ‘Decadent Skies’ by mysterious outfit An Anomaly on the ever reliable Offen Music imprint. 

Firmly built on the legacy of Belgian EBM/new beat/early European house bastions Liaisons Dangereuses Radio and Boccaccio (do check out the excellent ‘Sound of Belgium’ documentary if you have the chance - it’s on YouTube) it perfectly captures the excitement and grit of the Belgian late eighties sound while dragging it into the 21th century pants down. 

Opening with the raw and demented electronic body music drums of the primitive sample-heavy ‘Concrete Chorus’ and the sleazy darkroom beating that is ‘Eye For An Eye’, An Anomaly’s intentions are clear from the get go: they’re not here to make friends. 

The hypnotically zooming ‘Dialog of Dr. No’ and commanding ‘Velocity’ are further shop favorites here, while the acidic ‘Sky 13’ and ‘Sunset Storming Heaven on LSD’ are perfect for zoned-out after hours in desolate places. It’s dirty, deprived and decadent and we love it from A to Z. (RO)
