Beetnik Is Lost In Wonderland
The first thing I have to say about Beetnik's new single Gallus In Wonderland is that I hope the Walt Disney Company never sees this cover. If they do...Beetnik will face the wrath of the Mouse and there is nothing worse than Mickey when he's angry. Ok, now that we have that out of the way, Gallus In Wonderland is a crazy robotic path of destruction caused by keyboards, drum machines and what feels like a wave generator. This is a chaotic throbby roller-coaster of a ride through the high seas of techno and it will leave you dizzy and drained.
With enough repetitive loops, jumpy stabs, and rolling synths to make you black out the whole thing seems like a washing machine that's spun off its mounts and is attacking everything in its path. It's noisy, clangy and could be used as an aural weapon against enemies of the state. There's not much to latch onto in the way of melodies or a tune but as an electronic battle weapon Gallus In Wonderland is unstoppable. If you like the current wave of clangers and so-called electro house tunes out there you'll love this Beetnik. The question remains though...what does Mickey think?
