ABOUT THIS RELEASE:
Hot on the heels of his recent 12" for Detroit's Ersatz Audio label, Lowfish (aka Gregory de Rocher) returns to Suction Records for "Maintain the Tension," a new 6-track EP of precision drum machine electropop. This is suction014.
The title refers to a certain set of glorious knobs on one of Lowfish's prized vintage synthesizers but we won't bore you with the details. Lowfish's recent output has taken a turn towards dance floor friendly electro but do not fear Lowfish's DJ friendly beats! This is classic Suction robot pop and Lowfish's rich and timeless synthpop melodies make these club hits more akin to Depeche Mode circa 1981 than to Gigolo Records circa 2002.
"Speak and Spell" comparisons aside, this is utterly modern electronic dance music that is beautiful, engaging and beyond trends.
