Last year, Erol Alkan broke an umpteenth year tradition of refusing to release music under his own name by unleashing a double A side with Boys Noize. We were so impressed with how uncompromising ‘Waves’ and ‘Death Suite’ were that the lord of the indie dance appeared on our cover that month, and now the pair are releasing a follow up, ‘Avalanche’/’Lemonade’.

Last year, Erol Alkan broke an umpteenth year tradition of refusing to release music under his own name by unleashing a double A side with Boys Noize. We were so impressed with how uncompromising ‘Waves’ and ‘Death Suite’ were that the lord of the indie dance appeared on our cover that month, and now the pair are releasing a follow up, ‘Avalanche’/’Lemonade’.

The record is out already on Alkan’s own Phantasy label, an what’s more it’s even better than last year’s effort (especially the deranged but playful ‘Lemonade’). And once again you’ll find no indie star guest vocals here, as a lot of us expected with last year’s release, simply the cleverest ravey synths you’ve heard in a while.
