Bigod 20 – One (US 12″)


Electronic Body Music (EDM) or Intelligence Dance Music? (IDM) You decide. From 1994 and the last one from that year. A debut on this blog from this German electronic band, the trio of Andreas Tomalla (Talla 2XLC), Markus Nikolai and Thomas Franzmann (Zip, the techno artist). They got signed to Sire and had a large underground following in America and blend synths with a distinct Germanic vocal delivery.

So this is more like a mini-album. The actual track borrows from Front 242 but when I saw that Jack Dangers (Meat Beat Manifesto) had done a couple of mixes I was sold. The “Full On” builds to those BIG drums kick in,  The instrumental sends it off on a psychedelic trip with plenty of acid squelches.  The “Pink Elln” is a throbbing, techno rework by Tobias Freund “Get Yourselves On One” really? The “Funky Mix” by George Hagegeorge is more industrial Big Beat with guitar samples cut and pasted all over it. Finally, “Be Liquid” an instrumental track from the album “Supercute” is included as well as “Dominance And Submission” (Ouch, this was a bit of a weird listen, bad but not in a good way, how basic was the production?) Nice electronica but neither synth pop or industrial and it hasn’t aged that well.
