Red Light, Don't Stop

By Elektrons

Kicking the album off is the single and club favourite 'Get Up' which absolutely provides an exciting introduction to the rest of the album. The debut album from Elektrons is no doubt exciting as they have proven themselves underground and now, upon releasing this collection of electric tracks, they hope to establish themselves slightly higher above the floor.

With a variety of vocalists on the album, along with a mixture of British modern sounds, from the north to the south, East End dirt to futuristic disco noise and always creating a beat to dance to, Elektrons have included the history of the underground club. Groove, house, soul, it's all here and it all moulds together to create an appealing album. 'Stop Hold Up' is quite the bouncy track, with an aggressive laydee rap over the top. It works, it's experimental me-feels but it works on some level. 'Maximal' sounds like a club classic which could easily get the party started, and 'Be With You' opens with intriguing piano playing. The album doesn't have two tracks that sound the same, but even so, the assortment of the twelve tracks flows and they all works well together. Elektrons have made a charming, confident and somewhat sexy dance record.

What they've managed to achieve is an underground album with a mainstream appeal: something that will no doubt sound fresh and original in years to come. Possibly one of the best British dance albums of the year.
