Bubble Muscles, the new collaborative single from Peekaboo Streetsweeper and Piper Street Sound is a kaleidoscopic whirl of twinkling lights and bit-crushed groove. Peekaboo’s original is a Ghost In The Shell-era technofetishist’s dream, based on a tight, mid-tempo dance groove and featuring swirling synths bouncing and rebounding off each other that ascends from its gritty groove into a lofty and sanctified space. If that comes across as a bit cinematic, that’s on purpose. The track would be right at home on the soundtrack to any Sci-fi film. It’s hard not to picture streaking lights reflected off of shiny helmets as the pounding beat propels beautiful delayed synths toward some large cathedral of memory banks.
Piper Street Sound’s version is decidedly grittier. With a more glitchy, Aphex Twin meets Jungle feel, the pounding groove is shuffled and chopped, reassembled with a little more ‘bit noise’. There’s a hint of Cumbia shuffle in there as well as a more plaintive synth sound that leads one to the feeling that if Peekaboo’s version glides aloft sparkling lights in a pristine hovercar, Piper’s version is the grimy mirror reflection of what’s on the ground. It’s a bit more crowded, jangling, vaguely multi-cultural, equally at home in some Sci-fi globalized futurescape, though perhaps a little more Blade Runner than Tron.
