Boytronic: Bryllyant 12" EP

Boytronic: Bryllyant 12″ EP

Not familiar with this group, but apparently they formed in Hamburg in the early ’80s, released two albums and a handful of singles, and then their record label claimed rights to the name and put together an entirely different lineup of the band which recorded a few more albums. Anyway, Dark Entries just put out this EP of some of their early singles. The title track is included in two mixes, one of which features the track slowed down, the way Belgian DJ’s played it in 1988 at the height of the “new beat” movement. Playing 45s at 33 almost always makes them better, and this is no exception. The fact that this record plays at 45 RPM means that you can play it even slower and make it sound even sicker. The other two tracks on the record are entirely different, sounding like a Hi-NRG version of early Depeche Mode, and they’re awesome too, especially “Trigger Track”.
