crystalpalace – The Evolution Of Hunger

History repeating or just the future right now is what ‘The Evolution of Hunger’ had me pondering. I’m sure it would have found a sweaty home at the Hacienda in the early nineties but then again I can’t imagine Manumission turning up its nose at it either this summer. This is a downright fine piece of old skool electro with designs on the affections of contemporary dancefloors. Not much is known of Jean-Paul from Montréal who propels crystalpalace (‘1.0’ his new album is out now) but I guess that’s in with keeping with dance’s near faceless sound architects of the past. It’s even possible that JP could be amongst the throng as it loses itself in the cascading synths, pounding beats and the expected but altogether fitting sultry vocals. In short you’ll recognise the template but that doesn’t stop ‘The Evolution of Hunger’ from being one of the best dance tracks of the year. KD

    Yeah, me too. Reminds me of acid house a bit, could be a biggie given the right promotion I think.
