Mr. Velcro Fastener – TKU [CYBERDANCE017]


Finnish electro pioneers Mr Velcro Fastener return after a very long absence with this long-awaited and much-anticipated EP on Cyber Dance Records. Full of the same funked-out, quirky and fresh futuristic sounds that brought them instant recognition in the 90s electro underground the ‘TKU’ EP sounds like the innovative duo never went away, effortlessly picking up where they left off. ‘Brinkkala’ opens proceedings with their classic signature brand of Detroit-meets-Finland robotic funk jamming, while the next track ‘Bridge Over Nothing’ delivers harder and punchier rhythms deftly topped with layers of spaced-out chords and shimmering noises – and a relentless bassline that builds and progresses the grooves to alien dimensions of sheer electro brilliance. The sonic assault continues on Side B with ‘Ologrammed’, a pulsating monster of a track that pushes the Velcro Fastener sound into ethereal realms. The EP closes with ‘Johnny’s Wood’, a funked-up, jazzed-out and upbeat adventure over-brimming with robotic positivity and electronic optimism.
