On Love The Machines, Berlin’s DJ Cl» and Mike Vamp (better known as Mârtini Bràs) ride the fine line between obnoxious and irresistible-on purpose, it seems. Rocking out with their cocks out-it’s 1986!-the duo delivers 13 glittering electro-pop/techno-wave/robot rock ditties doused with quirky vocals, plunging basslines, stabbing synth-tones and razor-sharp percussion. The tracks are designed to charm you, annoy you and linger in your head for days; they’re playfully goofy and exceedingly serious at the same time.
