Original Hamster Presents Trendsetters and the Followers
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Tigerbeat6
Unfortunately, much of Chilean producer Vicente Sanfuentes' latest disc is more "follower" than "trendsetter." The bouncy, elastic bassline-filled electro likely wouldn't clear a dancefloor, but it wouldn't necessarily fill one, either. Daft Punk particularly comes through as an influence here, down to the inflections of funk and house layered with vocoders. And the outright cover on the album, a beep-filled version of "Burning Down the House" (with more filtered vocals), doesn't add to The Talking Heads' original.
