Danton Eeprom Yes Is More
Working in the oft-arid realms of minimal techno and microhouse, French producer Danton Eeprom imbues them with a sly sensuality that coaxes maximum wigglyness from a sparse sound palette. For his debut album, Eeprom threads male and female vocals (his own and Au Revoir Simone's Erika Forster) into a varied sonic tapestry without abandoning the genres with which he's established his lofty rep. He's also brought a brighter and more colorful approach to his tracks, as beat-wise opener "Thanks for Nothing" makes clear. The deep downtempo funk of "Give Me Pain" and the quiet-storm R&B of "Desire No More" attempt to capture Prince's seductive powers, but epic minimal-techno rollers "Tight" and "Confessions of an English Opium-Eater" remain Eeprom's forte.
