We live in trying times, but rather than solve all our problems, Belgian duo Mumbai Science recognise the futility in even trying, and have instead crafted the soundtrack for our eventual demise.
And what a soundtrack it is – mixing together forceful, motorik techno with chart-friendly dance bangers with some aplomb. The attention-grabbing ‘Whistleblower’ will get the headlines thanks to it comparing Edward Snowden’s NSA revelations to receiving cunnilingus (lyrics courtesy of electro-filthpot nonpareil Peaches, naturally) but the whole record is fantastically paced.
Nero might have fiddled while Rome burned, but thanks to Mumbai Science, we can dance while the whole planet goes up in flames.
