David Carretta


Domination EP


International DeeJay Gigolo Records


David Carretta2 track follow-up to his 'Le Catalogue Electronique' CD on Gigolo Records.

David Carretta has been playing hard electronics for several years. He has effectively used guest vocalists including Chicks On Speed.

On this EP 'Vicious Game' plows forward like a machine, or like the nemesis of Sparks 'No. 1 song In Heaven'. It has male vocals that slide out of the vocalist's mouth like a benediction.

On the flip, 'Punishment Song' has many samples, including news samples and snippets of Donna Summer. I like both tracks for different reasons. 'Vicious Game' is the showcase piece: the production is thick and pristine, with a layout that incites body movement. 'Punishment Song ' is more of a mind cut that you want to stop and listen to.
