“Imagine the musical love child of Flying Lotus and DJ Shadow. Soccer96 go some way to manifesting this sound; the perfect blend of jaw-droppingly creative drums and analogue synth geekery”
Soccer96 are an intense 2-piece from Brighton and London, England, featuring Danalogue on synths and Beatamax on drums. They play everything completely live, with no laptops, sequencers or software of any kind to create a brutal, frenetic energy, tron-like soundscapes and super-fresh polyrhythms. The self-titled debut album captures their incendiary aesthetic perfectly and was recorded live, to tape at Joe Watson’s (Stereolab) analogue studio with guidance from glitchy/noise producer Rob White, mixed by the band, Rob and Jack Eveleigh (Dam Funk/Neon Indian) and mastered by Kelly Hibbert (Flying Lotus).
