Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin. This week Oxford based Disco terrorists and convicted synth abusers (seriously, they’re on the register) Coloureds release their new single, Pop Forlorn. It;s been a while since we heard anything from these guys and in the past few months the have spawned a new Coloured. Green now joins Blue and Yellow in their brutal Electro-House oddessy.
Pop Forlorn is at once relentless and funky. Terminator basses ride roughshod over a cacophony of synths that belies a solid groove in what is possibly Coloured’s tightest, and more dancefloor friendly, track to date. Cut-up samples battle it out with pulsating digital sounds to see who can make you move more, just give in to it. The B-side, Automate, is where things start to get really Coloureds-esque, as they bring out their trademark chainsaw synths and set about carving up Disco and putting it back together to create some kind of compelling, groovy Frankensteinian best. The release come backed with reMixes from Sshh! The Deaf Have AIDS, Kenji Run and Tiger Mendoza, of which Kenji Run;s is the standout. Pick this shit up and kick off your weekend in style.
