Quick ad lib all recorded on a Arturia Microbrute monophonic synth with my old standby Roland TR-626.

Great sounds; good use of the vocal snip. Yes, you do.

whoa this is wild, love how gritty (yet almost hollow-sounding?) those lead synths are. percussion is particularly great in here too, love that punchy snare and its pitched up c-78 sounding counterpart (I suppose that's the TR-626 talking haha).

This is awesome! Gritty but also fun

This was great but the outro really made it awesome for me!  Love that switch up.  I really wanted the B-52s to sing on this track.

Great track! Definitely gives me a B-52s vibe. A very good vibe. :-)

Yes, the French produce a filthy synthesizer! I ran the drums through a secondary vocoder patch for the hollow sound while the main 626 is fattened with gated reverb.

Thanks! I had more planned for the outro but the laws of the physical universe and weekly beats wouldn't allow it. I'll have give it the Fred Schneider treatment someday in the future!

My wife won't let me wear my go-go boots in the house anymore but I may have to do the beehive for any live performances. Thanks!

Wonderful! I love the juxtaposition of powerful and aggressive synths with the playful compo, top notch smile
