Despite already showing off one track from his new album, Boys Noize’s first single won’t be last week’s ‘What You Want’ but a new track called ‘XTC’ – as in disco biscuits – that’s some clever subliminal marketing.
Thankfully, it follows on in a similar fashion to ‘What You Want’ with another piece of vocoded wizardry repeating the word ‘XTC’ for the main vocal hook, it’s then backed up with waves of future techno synths, a solid hip hop back beat and a liberal sprinkle of 80’s synths to bring the whole thing together.
It’s every bit as good as ‘What You Want’ if a little more considered, especially the hands-in-the-air breakdown.
Out August 6 via Boys Noize Records.
His album ‘Out of The Black’ is out October 2012.
