Vit Fana - Irrgång

 #φασουλα #πραγματακια #βουπουindustrial 

Although the cross-pollination between industrial and dance culture is not something new and led to some glorious records, I'm still wondering why are we suspicious about these juxtapositions and we tend to remember the bad examples over the good ones. For every third-rate Wax Trax remix, there still is a 20 Jazz Funk Greats and for every Groovy, Laidback And Nasty there is a Micro-Phonies to separate the shit from the gold. 
 Irrgång is not a danceable record by any means, but some elements are informed of the recent industrial/techno hybrid, even if the press release insists about 'early industrial noise music', so you will move your limbs around to it, either you like it or not. For the most part, Vit Fana's debut sounds like Alberich's beat-driven pieces without the punch, while the vocals fall directly into the whole Silent Servant/Broken English Club territory. Secret Thirteen mixes are made of this stuff. I still can't decide if I really like it or I'm just a victim of the hype.
