VARIOUS - Defining Tech
(Orbisonic/Manifesto)

What if they invented a genre and nobody came? You can call it electro, or you can call it electroclash, or you can call it nouveau new wave, or you can call it Ray, or you can call it Jay—on this compilation, they’re calling it tech. Fischerspooner, Bis, Miss Kittin & The Hacker, and others ply their wares in what’s billed as a true retro-futuristic movement. Solid tracks from Peaches, Bug Orchestra, and Felix Da Housecat are standouts. Sadly, the new wave spirit of this music has been funneled through the garden-variety techno of the ‘90s, draining it of most of the humor and irony that made the Gary Numans and Kraftwerks of the world so much more fun. Nice enough, but not my definition of a boombastic jazz style. address: Orbisonic
