Scheduled for February, 7th is Danton Eeprom's sophomore longplay piece "If Looks Could Kill" which is following up to his 2009 inFine-released "Yes Is More" on the same label again. Starting out showcasing a sweet ElectroPop attitude and starring the seductive ItaloDisco-flavored single "Biscotto & Chimpanzee" as second tune which, amongst others, I recently featured via Joinmusic , DigiSoul / Urban vibes take over with the pheromone blasting "Hextape". Dantom Eeprom serves a widely varied but still vibewise homogenic journey within the first ten minutes of playtime before entering dark'ish nightlife realms with the ever building "Femdom" that takes underground venues by storm due to a massive sex drive and truly suggestive vibe paired with glitzy TechHouse and decent 303 lines shining through. Further surprises included here are the intimate, floating Pop of "Never Ask, Never Tell", the dark but tender Synth ballad "All Dressed Up (And Nowhere To Go)" as well as the stab heavy RaveHouse affair "Occidental Damage" that - at some point - seems to reminisce about Green Velvet's heydays whilst creating a well positive and pretty uplifting vibe amongst punters and hardbaggin' drag queens alike. Later on "Hungry For More" caters a deep, even Yello'esque feel with its sonorous male vocals and rare "when-Pop-suits-club" arrangements before the overly dope "All Eyes On Me" triggers memories of long gone but great summer nights with Stereo MC's "Connected" blasting out of each and every car stereo and late night backyard basketball court sessions backed by shitloads of canned beer. Good one.
