The Army Of 1-0

This is the second (and last up to now) album by The Youngsters (*), also out through F Comm.

Everything I've written on their debut more or less applies here as well; a solid mix of hazy house, tough electro and deep techno, with slightly more breaks and jazz elements added. Two young Parisians daringly re-interpreting the Detroit sound, fitting it in their own city's dreams. The EBM-ish 'Place, Race & Face' stands out easily as the 'hit', still give the proper attention to the rest of the tracks; some subtle hallucinogenic gems hidden in there (see 'Confusion' or 'Mellotron', for example).
