Premiere: Bolz Bolz - Practice Paris
Cologne producer Andreas Bolz, known otherwise as Bolz Bolz, is somewhat of a trailblazer in the electro world.
Since the ’90s, he’s been releasing gritty mechanical experimentations on his own Electrocord imprint, taking in Parliament-era funk, disco and that ever heralded nucleus between Afrika Bambaataan electro and Kraftwerkian krautrock.
His latest output, his 70th release and a high-octane electro feast in the shape of the 5-track Practice Paris EP, comes courtesy of Tiefschwarz’s Souvenir, which counts Carl Craig and Radioslave amongst its recent contributors.
The title track is an upbeat funk-fuelled pumper that manages to pull off a complex intertwining of genres, with its underlying groovy bassline, synthesised disco jabs and conversational vocal snippets, harking back to Marc and the Mambas.
Bolz Bolz – Practice Paris EP is out soon via Souvenir.
