12 May 2003 / Demo / 5 Trk CD

This electronica pop/dance from BOKEN reminds you of St Etienne set to a fast trance beat. This collection throws up more than a few attempts to establish a dance anthem for the summer, especially for discerning clubbers. It works as well. This collection veers from lo-fi dance (“Dream Town”) to out and out Eurodisco (“All Or Nothing”), but also throws in some slower, more restrained numbers (“Unkind”) with things like Trumpets in the backing track.

With plenty of full on computer based efforts with a human touch, there’s enough sub-bass synths and spinning effects to add up to something a bit more complex than just dance music.
