Since 2012, Cosmic Boys of Montpellier, France have been rapidly infiltrating the French techno scene, and have now seeped into North American territory with this new EP titled “I Don’t Care” out on refused. So far, Sebastian Bevil and Gabriel Meynardier of Cosmic Boys have released on prestigious labels such as Minus, Form and their own imprint Scander.
This EP features infectious grooves, modulated vocals, deep basslines and crisp percussions. Origin features pronounced hi-hats, a dark groovy bassline, thunderous claps and manipulated, satanic vocals. I Don’t Care grows on a deep, down-tempo bassline and a filtered kick. Spacey effects and ominous, chopped up vocals give the track density and mind-blowing energy. Together kicks the energy back into high gear as a strong pronounced kick leads us into the last original track of the EP. Winding synths, and reverberated claps give this track motion. The EP also features a dark, rolling techno remix of I Don’t Care from Russian producer Ricky Ebner.
