ROAD SAFETY AT STAKE?

“tour de chauffe” is the debut album of KARBU38, a French [partly Italian?] combo with a passion for fast bikes, which is reflected in their sound. “tdc” is a high speed EBM / electro album in English, yummy French and exciting Italian.

The CD (digipack, limited edition) was released by the Italian label Elektro Kommando, who have also just released the new album by Liquid G., “Biohazard and Medical Waste”.

The mix of languages and male and female vocals works really well on this CD. An example? Listen to “Road safety at stake”. Thumbs up for C.lina’s gorgeous accent when singing in English!

The intro hits the spot immediately: roaring engines and exciting beats cruising by with a promise of a furious ride ahead.

The first real highlight appears in lap number 9: “Ready steady go!”. Passion, love and a death wish combined in one song. “Engine against asphalt” sounds vaguely like Liaisons Dangereuses and is followed by a furious ride on “Prototype 3.8”. Maximum speed is reached in the instrumental rollercoaster “Tour d’honneur”, a real “tour de force”!

5 laps to go: 4 remixes and a bonus track. Enjoy the “slow electro” of “Gamma GT” [Autodafeh remix] and the convincing Spark! remix of “Ready steady go”!. KARBU38 reaches the finish line crashing in style with “Accident”.

Quite a race, I must admit!

KARBU38? A fast bunch with a distinctive sound, trashing all speed limits. Nice, very nice indeed! And concert promoters: we want to see them live, ASAP!

GO KARBU GO!

ROAD SAFETY AT STAKE?

“tour de chauffe” is het debuutalbum van KARBU38, Fransen [Italianen?] die iets hebben met snelle motoren. Zo klinkt hun muziek in elk geval ook. Het gaat vooruit op deze CD en dat in het Engels, Frans en Italiaans. Het genre? Eigenzinnige EBM / electro.

De CD (digipack, limited edition) werd uitgebracht door het Italiaanse Elektro Kommando. Blijkbaar kan je daar ook de nieuwe Liquid G. (“Biohazard and Medical Waste”) bestellen: vooral doen!

De intro is meteen raak: brullende motoren, flukse beats die vrolijk voorbij cruisen … Een opwindende rit lijkt in het verschiet!

Het is echter wachten tot track 9 voor een eerste absolute hoogtepunt: “Ready steady go!”. Passie, liefde en doodsverachting op de weg, in het Frans, alstublieft! Dan volgt iets leuks wat vaag naar Liaisons Dangereuses ruikt [“Engine against asphalt”] en een helse rit op een prototype, 3.8 met name. Een leuk triootje als voorspel op de instrumentale rollercoaster “Tour d’honneur”, een ware tour de force!

Relaxed uitbollen kan op de “slow elektro” van “Gamma GT” [Autodafeh remix], het eerste van 5 dessertjes [4 remixes en nog een bonus track toe]. Ook de Spark! remix van “Ready steady go!” kan nog overtuigen en de eindmeet wordt stijlvol crashend overschreden met “Accident”.

C.lina (vrouwelijke vocals) klinkt fantastisch in het Engels. Zalig, dat Franse accentje! De mix van verschillende talen en male en female vocals werkt prima op deze CD. Een voorbeeldje? Luister naar “Road safety on stake”.

KARBU38? Een snelle groep met een eigen geluid, een groep met “smoel”! Nice, very nice! Scheuren maar, laat die PK’s werken! Concertorganisatoren: u weet wat u te doen staat …
