4.0 out of 5 stars As an X Factor contestant would say : I,ve been on a journey ., 11 Oct. 2008
This review is from: Where You Go I Go Too (Audio CD)
Imagine If Jean Michel Jarre really had the funk gene or was more interested in partying than chilling out then I think Where You Go I Go Too is a credible approximation of what he would sound like.
LindstrÝm is the sobriquet of Norwegian producer Hans-Peter LindstrÝm and he has remixed work by artists as diverse as Franz Ferdinand , Roxy Music , Imagination and LCD Soundsystem but on this album he creates three tracks covering 55 minutes of what has been dubbed space disco.
I can see why too as there is definite groove to this music . It is gloriously fluid with gyrating flights of fancy but with a rhythmic under pulse that keeps its metaphorical feet glued to the ( no doubt chrome and glass) dance floor. You could zero gravity dance to this stuff but it's also great just to listen to. It transports you somewhere else.
This album reminds me in many ways of hugely under rated dance pioneers Fluke who have a similar sinuous grace to their music . Though it must be said they never produced a track as elongated as the knocking on thirty minute title track . This track opens up with ambient found sounds -wave , wind that sort of thing - before percolating in esoteric keyboards .Once it hit it's groove it circulates poly-rhythmic errrr rhythms over which juddering keyboard refrains swish in and out . It build these layers up before ushering it all done and starting again with a more delicate tippy toe arrangement. It's not massively original but by god it's great to listen to.
"Grand Ideas " is like the Disco Evangelists doing the harder edged techno tones of Plastikman . "The Long Way Home" is bit prissy for five minutes before it mutates into a glistening theme for a show from the eighties involving white suits, big hair and perma tans.
Written produced arranged performed and mixed by one man ( that's why he won't have the time to shave or get a decent haircut ) Where You Go To I Go Too reminds the listener of too many other acts to be accepted as the work of a true auteur or original but like I said before it is terrific to listen to -especially if you are doing something else like the housework or writing a review -both of which I have done while listening to this album. Who really cares if it recycles so many old ideas when the end result is as good as this and his taste in influences is impeccable.
