ï¿½Donï¿½t judge a book by its coverï¿½ they say, well, this saying applies to Stï¿½phane Laporteï¿½s Fourrure Sounds Vol.2, for nothing solar lies behind the glorious sunset on the cover of his second album for Parisian imprint, Antinote. While Fourrure Sound Vol.1 recalled an era of naï¿½ve electronic experimentations recorded to soundtrack TV documentaries, Vol.2 resurrects 1990ï¿½s 12-hour-long rave parties. For the occasion, Stï¿½phane Laporte changed the name of his godfathers from Franï¿½ois De Roubaix and Jean-Jacques Perrey to Conrad Schnitzler and I-F.For the first twenty minutes of the album, Laporte unleashes the monster he dreamt about, a golem made out of rusty bike chains and broken glass, providing some tracks for nightmarish dance floors with the dirty electro tunes. Dispositions and Sound 23 and the degenerate footworkish track, Ossature. You have to wait for the last two tracks of the record to finally find some semblance of serenity: Vitre, a synthetic ballad, and Tunnel, Stï¿½phane Laporteï¿½s stirring hymn for a generation of desperate ex-ravers.
