Spektrum Enter The Spektrum
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Playhouse
Inimitable micro-funksters Playhouse make like the DFA, Output, Optimo, Tigersushi, etcetera, and try to birth a new no wave phenom into the world. Except it's not quite that easy-the nasally female vocal whine and disco-punked bass of this UK crew will sound painfully familiar to anyone who has found themselves dancing debaucherously of late. After a recent string of 12"s boldly reconfiguring their electro-techno-pop-punk via mixes from Richie Hawtin, Tiefschwartz, Villalobos, Alter Ego and Losoul, entering the Spektrum doesn't seem like such a wise choice.
