Funk D'Void Volume Freak
- Words: Vivian Host
- Label: Soma
Something happens when you take a dour Scottish techno producer and place him under the Catalunyan sun: he cheers up. Yes, following Funk D'Void's move away from rainy Glasgow, Volume Freak is his most purposefully melodic and soaring album to date. Still, it it's not like he's become Savath & Savalas or something. Underpinning these hopeful synths and the occasional moment of vocal melodrama are the pounding, drummy, seven-minute long thud-whack techno tracks that Soma's been gridding out for years. So just consider Volume Freak the Funk D'Void for the starlit terrace rather than the dirty basement.
