Let's Buy Happiness
Label: Last Gang
German producer Alexander Ridha's debut is not an album of skinhead sing-a-longs, as the name would imply. Instead, it's an onslaught of agro filtered house and electro sleaze that's like Daft Punk on steroids, but sans love vibes. Opening track "And Down", a gurgling melange of analog squelches, and "Superfresh", an electro throwdown of chainsaw rhythms with a sparse robot vocal chorus, shows Oi Oi Oi as an unrelenting series of prime-time dancefloor filler. But an album of high-octane singles does not an album make without a common thread tying the songs together.
