Mr. Oizo & Gaspard Augé ED BANGER-DIFFERENT (digital)

After working as a director in publicity, Quentin Dupieux wanted to get into cinema. His new audio-visual effort is called “Rubber”, and it’s the story of a killer type -a mix of “Mad Max”, “Easy Rider” and “Death Proof”, or at least that’s how the film is being sold- wreaking havoc and dragging the police down dusty roads. The soundtrack is written by Quentin himself under his Mr. Oizo moniker, alongside Gaspard Augé of Justice. “Rubber EP” is a taster of the film’s soundtrack, and if everything is put together well we most likely have a cult film on our hands –in other words, it’s not the “Gerry with robots” that Daft Punk’s “Electroma” became. The sound is dynamic, intense, funny even, although at first hearing it doesn’t transcend the direct connection between the sound of Mr. Oizo –rushing, with a lot of rhythmic breaks, somewhere between electro, hip-hop and anarchic IDM– and Justice, a lot more epic, more eighties, with the dodgy science-fiction element that was also present in the French duo’s hits like “Phantom”. But what prevails is the sick humour: “Tricycle Express” samples Kraftwerk’s “Trans Europe Express” with fat synth stabs –in other words, cosmic disco- while “Polocaust” appears to be a tribute to Wendy Carlos’ soundtracks for Stanley Kubrick. The best however is the Flying Lotus remix of “Rubber”, which impregnates the filtered, glitchy sound with wonky videogame music. Richard Ellmann
