more talented australians as we proceed with the bag raiders who just dropped their third ep on bang gang 12 inches. the title track 'turbo love' gives us exactly what we've come to expect from them, their trademark sound of punching drums, arcade style synths and yeah, vocoders! discobelle once again were the lucky ones to get clearance straight from bag raiders but that's just even more proof that this is a real sick track, 'instant hit and guaranteed floorfiller', as martin puts it.
bag raiders - turbo love
make sure to check out the whole ep, as my favorite track is the flipside 'shooting stars' featuring rhys from ted and francis (yeah, they are everywhere) on the vocals with one of the loveliest chorus parts i have heard all year. congratulations for another big release, bag raiders!
UPDATE: while i tried to contact bang gang 12 inches and got down on my knees to beg for at least a low-q version of 'shooting stars' but never heard back from them, ohh! crapp... keeps on giving me a hard time with some serious competition and obviously got permission to post the track, straight from the bag raiders, so they say. so while i am feeling a bit bad about giving this away to all you leechers, i can't resist. the part from 02:41 on is probably the most beautiful thing i've heard all year.

so once again: share your love with bag raiders, ted and francis, bang gang 12 inches and buy the ep on beatport, buy the ep on beatport, buy the ep on beatport.
