Taking over the world is not an easy task, so Otis and Paul Lution have teamed up to form the acid / techno / rock duo Punky & The Brain. With as much hardware as you can shake a stick at, this pair of geniuses are more than capable of getting the job done where the 90’s cartoon mice comically seemed to keep failing. Having already conducted several excellent experiments at Club der Visionaere, Partisans OFF Week event, and Shelter’s huge NYE / NYD party, they now deliver a free track for our gratis series.
With a Punky & The Brain live set orbiting the many faces of the electro end of the house and techno spectrum, their track “Digital Emotions” see’s them in a sinister mode. Flanged synths give the sonic appearance of a transformer in a bad mood and the distorted snare rolls only add to this black cloud emanating from the speakers. Otis on vocals pitches dark shapes across the track like a vocoded shadow, while acid salvo’s tweak and filter their way menacingly through the mix. We expect big things from Punky & The Brain, their unique performances and upfront release, it appears the pair have started 2024 the way they finished 2023 – on full power.
