Dirtyphonics Wants You DIRTY
France’s electro-dance quartet, Dirtyphonics, wants you to get DIRTY with its debut full-length record for Dim Mak Records, Irreverence. Self-proclaimed “boundary pushers,” the group shows significant personal growth from its previous EP releases and leaves you with a promise of more great things to come. Irreverence is a notice nailed to the door of every music snob, electronic dance fan, and casual listener to take heed: Dirtyphonics is here to stick around and make some waves.
The ten-track album opens with “Prelude (White)”—a climbing, vaudevillian piano tune that explodes into the operatic electronic version, “Prelude (Black).” The juxtaposition of these tracks showcases the band’s musicianship and proves they’re more than just a couple of guys with computers. From there, the album continues to deliver throbbing bass and plenty of dramatic beats to keep any genre fan’s electro-lust at bay. The blending of genres also provides a feast for the ears, particularly on the last track, “Walk in the Fire,” which blends hardcore metal with Dirtyphonics’ electronic sound for a blood-boiling tune guaranteed to get you moving.
Irreverence aims to be a concrete mission statement for Dirtyphonics—a proclamation of the band’s intentions for its own sounds and for the impact they want to achieve on the music scene as a whole. For the average listener only looking for a good time, this is still an album for you. Get together some friends, down plenty of PBR, lose all care for not busting a speaker, and let Irreverence provide the perfect sounds for a magical night.
