I’m rather partial to a bit of Morgan Geist’s Detroit techno sound. But this remix of Bot’Ox has a rather faster almost-breaks feel to it. Still well worthy of your time.

Parisian motor fetish electro poppers, Bot’Ox (AKA or Julien Briffaz and Benjamin Boguet, the half of Tekel and the whole of Cosmo Vitelli) puts it into gear and takes to the Autobahn with their latest single, ‘Overdrive’ out on I’m A Cliché Records this June. Jammed packed with up-tempo rhythms, mad synth lines and freaky melodies at every sharp turn, ‘Overdrive’ is the perfect long haul, road trip soundtrack as you put pedal to the metal on the highway to where ever.

A tried and tested formula, the reaction to the track at the end of the band’s new live set has proven to be most welcoming. The crowd loves it and so do Bot’Ox. Already a staple fixture in the buzzy Parisian scene, the duo’s debut album will be released in September and the boys look set to rev it up.

The 12” package comes with 4 choice remixes.

Morgan Geist, of Metro Area fame and Environ’s head honcho, adds a furious groove to the original while keeping the tension alive. French duo Logo, hotly tipped newcomers, take it straight to the dance floor and last but not least, Welcome Stranger (aka Thomas Bulllock from Rub n Tug) uses the handbrake to give us a deep, beat less and dubbed out version.

  1. […] track from the po-faced Parisians. Not as austere as the last track, a Morgan Geist remix. Better […]
