HICCUP is a experimental techno duo from Turkey who perform their music in manner that’s very reminiscent of The Chemical Brothers.
A bold claim, but when you look at the video for their track ‘T’ — the whole thing is clearly riffing off the Chems’ live show; two people on stage, one handling the drums and the other melody. It also really helps that the track they are performing in the video below is actually a really good cut of electrofied experimental techno.
Like with most live electronic music there’s a certain robotic rigidness to the track as it slowly builds over 7 minutes of distant rave hooks, pummeling drums and long, sweeping breakdowns.
The track itself is taken from their new album, ‘MAELSTROM’, which is billed as a bit of a “journey” across 61 minutes and 8 tracks of what the duo call “nocturnal sound”.
We’ve had a listen to the album and we were suitably impressed by its nocturnal-ness.
