Kitbuilders Wake Up [Moddule Version]
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: S.H.A.D.O. Electr
Some say rock 'n' roll will never die, but electro could outlast even that hoary beast. Spawned in the early '80s, this robotically funky style continues to enchant young producers, including K?ln's Kitbuilders (Benway and Ripley). Wake Up originally surfaced in 2001, but reappears here with two bonus remixes of the title track by BolzBolz. Keen students of Kraftwerk's Computer World, Giorgio Moroder, D.A.F. and the Liquid Sky soundtrack, Kitbuilders applies recent electronica's glitch fetish to surprisingly durable '80s synth settings. Ripley's female vocals evoke obligatory anomie and snottiness, but the music's edginess and weird textures help it transcend electroclash ennui.
