IN the heady days of the raving '90s The Chemical Brothers were among a handful acts who thrust electronic dance music into pop culture. With EDM firmly entrenched in the mainstream for the past 25 years, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons prove on their ninth album, No Geography, they remain among the genre's elite.
From the foreboding robotic opener Eve of Destruction, No Geography takes a psychedelic journey from disco, soul, trance and house, all while keeping the songs anchored by melody. We've Got To Try is simply thrilling. It starts as an Avalanches-style disco patchwork, before exploding into a pumping '90s beat. If you're still not dancing, check out Got To Keep On, probably the best Daft Punk song not written by the French act.
