The classic outsider house duo known as Cowboy Rhythmbox (CBRB) is set for a new release this November. Known for their love of bargain bin dives and obscure tracks, the group often creates new and exciting material that is unique to the CBRB style. In Tanz Exotique, all 3 tracks have their own groove and approach. These drastically different songs make up a wild but wonderful track list around 20 minutes long. Cat’s Invasion, the second song on the EP, utilizes many obscure noises and sounds (something CBRB is well known for). Combined with deep breathing synths and a bare-bones rhythm, the song is a stark but memorable dance track with a great beat. Phantasy describes the song as:
“Music for darkrooms on interstellar pleasure cruisers.”
Last but not least, the last track on the EP, Scream, is a staight-up, in your face, gritty acid techno jam. There’s not much more to say about this one, although we might point out the fantastic use of vocal samples.
The title track of the EP, Tanz Exotique has not yet been released. Take a listen to the other two tracks below!
