Light Fantastic

Grand Hotel
The highest-profile 'defection' from the breakbeat scene in the last couple of years, the Plumps nevertheless still mainly work with broken rhythms. 'Light Fantastic' here starts all minimal electro before breaking down into an anthemic chiming Orbital refrain, and then - OMG! Double rainbow! A blistering bassline, rolling kick-ass breakbeats, A Homeboy, A Hippie & A Funky Dread yelps, noisenik electro fills and old hardcore tinges demonstrate that the Plumps have lost none of their on-point dancefloor sensibility. Ends with ace breathy Laurie Anderson 'O Superman' intonations. Breaks (not breaks). Will Bailey's fairly faithful mix is excellent too.
