Cabaret Voltaire – Neuron Factory (1992)

Re-emerging with a much more original sound after their 1990 house album, Kirk} and Mallinder for the most part rely on abstract electro-inspired ambient-techno with extended voice-over samples for Plasticity. It certainly wasn’t the first time CV had remade themselves without losing elements of their past work (even re-sampling a passage originally recorded over ten years earlier on &”Soul Vine [70 Billion People), and {Plasticity was an excellent reworking of the house blueprint into the growing fringe of techno not necessarily produced for the dancefloor. The tribal flourishes of &”Deep Time” and the obvious signal track &”Inside the Electronic Revolution” showcase the duo as continuing visionaries. John Bush, Rovi
