fall on mars

Mouse on Mars have teamed up with mark e. smith from 'the fall' and n.y. rapper 'tears the muffin man' for new vocal mixes of "wipe that sound". "Rumor had it that the forthcoming Mouse on Mars' LP, Radical Connector, was going to be a dance-oriented outgrowth from the duo's stellar Idiology, but I can't imagine anyone expecting such a decidedly enormous beat as the one gracing "Wipe That Sound." The track decided veers away from the modern click and thump of German tech-house, instead shooting for the realm of block party booty anthems: "Wipe That Sound" grooves slow and sleazy through an ooze of typically dense MoM hiccups and atypically sloppy swaths of synth, while a chorus intoning the song title doubles over and chirping falsettos echo in response. Though it generates from a painfully slow, monotone trickle, "Wipe That Sound" quickly gains steam, renewing a slew of R&B cliches through its four-minute maximum recourse and closing as Mouse on Mars' catchiest track yet." "The collaboration MOUSE ON MARS + MARK E. SMITH is a jumbo merger - and nothing less. "Wipe That Sound" is already the coolest club 12" of the year." Buy Radical Connector here or get the 12" at Forced Exposure.
