Les Techno is a New York City based post-punk electronic rocker that has released critically acclaimed singles “Where were You?,” “Come Along,” “Closer Look,” and “Guilty Pleasure” available on Spotify, iTunes and elsewhere. He made hip-hop tracks with rap artists Run-DMC, Mobb Deep and Onyx, among others. He did a Red Hot Chili Peppers remix (Higher Ground), worked with R&B artist Ava Cherry and with the late, legendary funk master Bernie Worrell. This project is a new mixture of rock guitar sounds, electronics, hip hop beats, live bass, and his satirical lyrics.
The song has an ‘80s feel mixed with industrial and a groove that is impossible to ignore. A funky backbeat will grab you at first, but then the lyrics will keep you involved. Les Techno says this about the song: “Watching the Amazon burn, this song appeared out of nowhere, as an alarm in my head: we are all at the party at the edge of the world. We party and the world hurls into climate oblivion. “Swept over at the end of the road, where you lose control… you’re at the party at the edge of the world…..” Pretty powerful stuff and a fantastic song that takes nothing away from the message.
I can’t wait to hear what he comes up with next since this is a great single and leaves me wanting more from him. Take a listen and feel the pain of the world going to shit, but there are people like him who are trying to do something about it.
