Electro-duo Fanny Games consist of eccentric London-based Italians Lapo Frost and James Brivido. Famed for their intense and downright mental live shows the boys deliver freeform improvised electro inspired by French House, Italo-Disco, Glitch and punk-pop. Their signature track – the vocoder driven “In The Club (On The Street)” is familiar to anyone who has seen them live. It marks their debut for MofoHifi Records, where they join their friends and fellow Italians Phonat, 5eya, Birdee and Fire Flowerz in a stunning line-up of disco madness coming this summer on the label.
Here’s what Electronic Rumors Blog had to say: “Throw Electro-House, Nu-Disco, Italo and French Touch into a blender set to decimate and this is the results. A juggernaut of a tune driven by Vocoded chanting and chainsaw synths. I get that the vocoded vocals are saying “In The Club (On The Street)”, but it sounds a lot like “Intruder Alert” from ‘Talking Android Attack’, one of the first computer games with voice synthesization on the Dragon 32, which actually kidna’ adds to the cool. ‘In The Club (On The Street)’ is a full-on dancefloor destroyer, and surprisingly melodic. reMix duties are covered by Luxar, who starts off with shuffling, fidgety ,beasts but soon warps the track into something more akin to Cosmic Disco with a weird, but funky, mixture of ‘90’s House elements and futuristic galactic voyages. Fanny Games live in a world of their own, if you decide to join them, and we suggest you do, tread carefully. No-one gets out of here alive.”
