About Max Cooper:
VVWI (Veryverywrongindeed Recordings) has always been about being first out of the gate in the UK for new young pedigree thoroughbreds, heavily doped, frothing and keen as mustard. The success of our early work with the now massive Spektre is testament that despite appearances we may actually know what we are doing. This is our second outing with wunderkind Max Cooper and probably the last we will see of our boy as he wooshes past on his way to the big school. We put a hanky to our eye and wave fondly from the pier like the proud but sad mother we are.
In case you've been dead for tax reasons for the last year: Max has come out of nowhere to headline Fabric and bother the top end of many charts in a disturbingly short time and it's nothing to do with us. Recent remix razzle has been for Hot Chip and Au Revoir Simone among many others and while Max has done us the honour of being our chum early doors, the esteemed Traum label is his true home.
Silicon Sleaze kicks off this 4 track monster. Here at VVWI we seem to have evolved a cycle of 'light/dark/light/dark' in our release schedule. And after the very well received and supported wonky dancefloor jollity of Timo Garcia.... once again we hiss and steam in the brightness and scuttle off back into the basement. Along with the aforementioned we have the amazing Tinderbox. Re-jigged and given an airing. Max has taken VVWI back to our earlier works of Spektre/Sheridan darkness and a welcome return it is too. Max has listened, got involved and totally got what we are trying to do. Make house and techno that has no friends and lives on fish heads in the attic.
On remix action we have Hans Bouffmhyre, yet another shockingly young talent turning in a superb warm rolling techno take. Like being stalked by a monster but one you quite fancy. In keeping with Max's proper science background (fact!) we have former Swiss chemist Jill (AKA Gilles) Bellac coming on all ace with his grooving version that all adds up to what we embarrassingly call 'a very nice package'.
Load up on steroids, bung the jockey a drink and whack this pony on the flanks... we have a winner.
