Even though the debut of Factory Floor was hailed which made them one of the best newcomers in the alternative dance scene, drummer Dominic Butler left. The trio became a duo, not that you can hear this on the new LP.

Just like on Factory Floor’s debut from 2013, Nik Void and Gabriel Gurnsey still make tight techno pop which takes its influences from the 80's. Not really surprising as the two are also involved in Cosey Fanni Tutti and Stephen Morris of New Order already remixed a few songs. The New Order drummer describes Factory Floor as disco that takes you out of balance.

On 25 25 which is produced by David Wrench (FKA Twigs and Caribou) you mostly hear very hard, repetitive basses and beats of modular synthesizers. Danceable, but also effective for home fun.

Eight great songs with unpredictable grooves, odd voices and icy synthetic sounds. This album almost makes Factory Floor the successors of Cabaret Voltaire. Indeed one of the electronic bands to follow.

Ook al werd het debuut van Factory Floor bejubeld waardoor ze de lievelingen van het alternatieve danspubliek werden, hield drummer Dominic Butler het voor bekeken. Het trio werd een duo, al hoor je dat op hun nieuwe langspeler niet.

Nik Void en Gabriel Gurnsey maken op de opvolger van hun debuut uit 2013 nog steeds strakke technopop dat zijn invloeden uit de jaren 80 haalt. Echt verwonderlijk is dat niet, de twee zijn ook betrokken bij Cosey Fanni Tutti en Stephen Morris van New Order remixte reeds een paar nummers. De New Order-drummer omschrijft Factory Floor als disco je uit balans brengt.

Op 25 25 die door David Wrench (FKA Twigs en Caribou) is geproducet hoor je overwegend loeiharde, repetitieve bassen en beats van modulaire synthesizers. Lekker dansbaar, maar minstens even effectief voor thuis met de koptelefoon op.

Acht heerlijke songs met onvoorspelbare grooves, vreemde stemgeluiden en ijskoude synthetische klanken die Factory Floor bijna de opvolgers van Cabaret Voltaire maakt. Factory Floor wordt terecht door de danswereld aangestipt als één van de te volgen bands.

I regularly come across animal remains at various stages of decomposition. That started to affect me, and that's where the concept of the record was born.
