It’s been three years since Back From Beyond, the last original Black Strobe release. In between front man Arnaud Rebotini has offered up three solo EPs, plenty of remixes and an album ‘Someone Gave Me Religion’, with its acid techno darkness.
‘Boogie In Zero Gravity’ is a swaggering funk sonafabitch, with a stoned LCD Soundsytem-esque vocal and proper true to life blues guitar flourishes. If boogie was personified, this would be it; wearing a pastel sweater, but chewing on a nasty ass cheroot.
Black Strobe – Boogie In Zero Gravity EP
Boogie In Zero Gravity is the promised precursor to a full album release in 2013. You can buy the EP on July 16th.
Here’s a new podcast from France’s Tsugi Magazine, featuring SS fave Rebotini. You can download it HERE and be sure to check out other podcasts on Tsugi’s site HERE. They’ve got contributions from people like Renaissance Man, Dj Pierre and the late DJ Mehdi on there, so have a look
Blackstrobe are set to re-issue their 2004 electro favourite ‘Italian Fireflies’ on March 5th, with a new selection of remixes to spice things up. Among the contributors are Hey Today, Second Date and this ace rework from Reflex.
The reissue coincides with the release of a new album later in the year, apparently without original member Ivan Smagghe and they will be dropping a greatest hits retrospective sometime soon.
Here’s a really nice remix from Blackstrobe of France’s Turzi Electronic Experience. ‘Connaissance’ is the first track off TEE’s Education album and the remix starts off with heavy Kraftwerk influences, before morphing into a harder, hypnotic techno beast.
Word on the Blackstrobe grapevine is that there will be a new EP out in December, with Rebotini releasing his own EP ‘Another Time, Another Place’ on 7th November. You can hear ‘Another Time, Another Place’ here.
For now we can make do with this massive hour long mix from Blackstrobe. Downloadable Mastery
