Nid and Sancy - Talk To The Machine

Electroclash always seemed like a silly name to me. What exactly was it clashing with? Passion? You probably wouldn’t ever have reason to call Nid and Sancy electroclash, if the unfortunate genre tag hadn’t sprung up, but if we must, we must. Luckily, the duo infuse their songs with a healthy does of attitude missing from the New York spawned movement. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re from Belgium. Either way, songs like “No Fuck All” and “So Where’s Your Acid Brother” roil with a fierceness that mixes the best of electro and digital hardcore’s ridiculous sloganeering—a genre slowly taking form under the gaze of artists like T. Raumschmiere. Highly recommended.

Nid and Sancy - Be Yourself Tonight

You can’t expect much from a name like that, which makes this track an even more pleasant surprise than it might have been. The tension is built from the beginning moment of the track, until the roiling bass and guitar build to a climactic peak in which an honest-to-god guitar riff sample comes barreling in to knock you off your feet. It does its job, mainly because it’s so unexpected, but once you get used to it, it makes perfect sense. But then you’re knocked off your feet again with the false ending! This, my friends, is dance-punk done right. Take note.
