Slow Propulsion

My interview with Jeremy from the Junior Boys is now up on the Fact website.

    The principal influence on the new record is disco, and I think that had a tremendous effect on the 'rhythm of the record'. Disco, we came to realize, occupies a strange rhythmic place, because while itís very steady, itís also rather slow. Itís usually about 110 to 120 BPM, much slower than modern house/techno music. So we thought it would be really interesting to set our music in this kind of space. So a lot of the record has that strange slow propulsion to it.
