Black Strobe: Boogie in Zero Gravity
It's one very cool track with a great groove. It's probably a bit like what Nick Cave would sound like if he was into dance music.
For a dance act, many of their influences come from outside the usual sphere, Rebotini having at one time played in an extreme metal act. The Crass-influenced graphics on this release certainly seem to indicate an immersion in an eclectic playlist.
Locating themselves in the interzone between dance and the more extreme end of the rock spectrum, they make a sound that's been grown from a strange but fertile soil.
Black Strobe's debut Burn Your Own Church was release in 2007, and they have remixed the likes of Röyksopp, David Guetta, Depeche Mode, Bloc Party and Nitzer Ebb and Rammstein, along with many others, over the years.
Rebotni's most recent solo album Someone Gave Me Religion was released in May last year.
The Boogie in Zero Gravity album was released in France earlier in July
