Joachim Garraud’s latest offering “Invasion 2011” is a juggernaut of an electro release, with banging beats on a mission from their mothership to invade your eardrums. It’s an LP that’s as retro (and fun) as a game of Galaga, and while most of the songs are high-scorers, a few will leave you at Game Over.
Space Invaders are Back and They Love Planet Earth (Original Mix)
Easily the masterpiece of the album, this track has a BIG sound and an even bigger, more rambunctious drop. This is a peak-hour bomber that will have people wondering what just hit them.
AutoErotique’s remix work makes a good track into a great one.
Can’t Stop This! (Original Mix)
Turbocharged sounds and Martian vocals, along with some cowbell, really bring this one together.
THE COMPUTER (THE BOOMZERS & JOACHIM GARRAUD RMX)
“The Computer” showcases a darker sound, one more brooding than most others on the album.
EVERYBODY IN THE PLACE
Imagine the sprawling beats from a track like Warp 7.7 mashed up with Zuper Blahq-like vocals, and you have a recipe for “Everybody in the Place”.
Wake Up People
BACK FROM SPACE (ALEX DEL AMO RMX)
My Boyfriend is a Robot
Are U Ready (2011 RMX)
WE ARE THE FUTURE (MARCO G & JOACHIM GARRAUD RMX)
And guess what…
