"The stunning follow up to 7 Hurtz's acclaimed debut album Audiophiliac. Acclaimed London electro funk duo 7 Hurtz (Lascelles Lascelle and Ben Cowan) -- bound by a mutual love of badass beats, Jean Jacques Perry, melodic loopiness andJohn Carpenter. They're probably best known for their anthemic club tracks 'Beatbox' and 'Stokers Motor' which tore up dancefloors on release in 2000. Killer riffs, electro stylings and sinister beats have made them classics of the Electro genre. 'We were interested in doing electronic music that involved improvisation, found sound, semi-generative, visually stimulated work that moved away from the music we had been doing. We also wanted to make the music in a way that meant the processes of writing, playing and recording converged so that we could do it ourselves. Audiophiliac, a dark propulsive journey through funk/electro/hip hop and 303/808 cultures, received unanimous critical acclaim & the bands myriad influences -- the retro-futuristic sounds, the John Carpenter "Assault On Precinct 13" obsessions and Hashim-style bleakness all contributed to a sound that revitalized and redefined the Electro scene. 7-Hurtz enthusiastically set to work on the follow up, Electroleum, now finally available."
