“Cleopatra’s nose, had it been shorter, the whole face of the world would have been changed“. Blaise Pascal couldn’t have been more right. Half of electro production duo Glass Figure, responsible for the excellent ‘Nowhere‘ on Nocta Numerica last year, Christophe Le Gall strikes back as Too Smooth Christ after a couple promising EPs on newborn French label Ville Nouvelle.
Scheduled to drop by the end of the month via Fuego International, ‘Cleopatra’s Secret Diary EP‘ finds Le Gall exploring the valley of the Nile on camel-back, sun beating down and sight scanning the horizon in search for sand-covered pyramids, ancient temples and gold-plated sarcophagi.
Blazing with buxom bass moves, skittish drums and a dazzling flight of chimey oriental synths, ‘Cleopatra’s Bath‘ burns like a red-hot amulet in the hand of a faithless tomb robber, casting a millenary curse on anyone intrepid enough to venture into its sacred, spirit-protected space. Only one thing could break the spell… time to do the Egyptian dance.
Cleopatra’s Secret Diary EP is released via Fuego International end of May, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
