These Are Powers "World Class Peoples"
These Are Powers has been crafting claustrophobic, paranoid dance music for a while now, but it is with the group's next release on RVNG that the sonic assault really comes to its apex. "World Class Peoples" features a stomping house beat, rumbling bass, Middle Eastern war synths, and truly menacing multi-layered vocals. The sound is something like the perfect mix of the confrontational sexuality of mid-period Gang Gang Dance, the leftfield house aesthetics of Excepter, and a healthy dose of mid-'90s European electro. In fact, one of the track's main synth lines has the feel of a weird reconfiguring of Robin S.'s "Show Me Love." Sweaty basement dance parties will be blaring this for months to come.
