About the release:

Highly recommended! Deep, strong and relentless, this is the first full length E.P. of The Analogue Cops on their own label Restoration. As usual, an unquestionable raw force is summoned by the abrasive touch of their experienced hands on incorruptible machines, without any mean computer involved in their operations.

“WHY YOU LOVE ME” is a killer house track with an unmistakeable debt with Detroit, a powerful garage-influenced bassline and two charming loving voices over a very thick bass drum; finally, the magnificent trumpets of the break and the fiercy cymbals after them crown it all.
“CRC*09”, an extract of The Cops’ live at the infamous Crackers Club somewhere in Berlin at the end of last summer, is an evidence of their high efficiency on the crime scene. The obscure combination of their artificial tribal percussions with a dangereous urban bass line and a dark mumbling voice is enlightened by a blazing old-schoolish piano assault. The dancefloor is now secure.

On side B, “REFUSED” is a dancefloor mass-weapon: it begins with impenetrable heavy beats and the voice and the claps of an artileryman. The advance of a low frequency tank has an hectic pace, but slowly a sneaky technological string line succeed to bring peace to this dangerous zone.
“WAIT A SECOND” is the first Cop’s dubstep tune to be released and it’s one of the very few dubstep track you can find on your filthy streets to be fully assembled only with hardware equipment and recorded on tape. There is no straight kick, and the bass line is vicious; the funk is in the air and he is going to hurt somebody.

RST0012 is played by the best djs around: you know who they are.
