Jack Byne and Conor Murphy are Hystereo and they mean business. Two renegade brokers of premium punk funk, driven insane by the malfunctioning market they are about to shudder a shockwave through the system with their debut portfolio Corporate Crimewave. Their influences are rooted in disco, house, electro and techno, their sound is like a big bang ? raw and energetic, vivacious and corrupt. Glued somewhere between Vitalic?s rampant style and George Clinton?s Funkadelic output, Hystereo have the fever, and it?s contagious. Since being headhunted by Soma in their teens, the young Dublin city slickers have become one of the label?s prime assets. Some afterhours negotiations sealed the deal, and Hystereo have rinsed the rhythms from their machines to produce a fresh album of killer cuts to blitz the old guard. Jack and Conor have been working together for five years, a mutual love of house, hip hop and techno brought them together, fuelled with a disregard for the multi-national monopoly they have created an album with a biting anti-global ethos. The music speaks for itself though. Fizzing electro packed assaults like crazed title track ?Corporate Crimewave?, napalm drenched new single ?Validity Revision / Resistance? and the menacing ?Executive Memo? are the equivalent of an aural armageddon, rocking beat bonanza?s riddled with synth cyclones to make the floor go boom. The kind of thing The Prodigy would have made if they scored the Flash Gordon soundtrack in the early 80?s.
