'We are surrounded by thousands of sounds. All it takes is to order them electronically, give them rhythm and harmony, synchronize them, modulate them, etc.,' says Tytus de Zoo Book XVII (a fictional character from a Polish comic strip.)

Capitan Commodore aka Mariusz Socha joins the long and illustrious list of International Deejay Gigolos. His influences run through idols such as Herbie Hancock, Kraftwerk, Björk, Matmos, Mr. Oizo, Stanisław Lem, Philip K.Dick, and Timmbaland. Hailing from Lodz in Poland, you couldn't imagine a place further away from the environs that inspired Capitans Commodores idols. But when you listen to the music this tedious notion no longer matters, because like the work of our protagonists idols it is both Fun and Progressive.

All the tracks on this single are immediately modern, futuristic and forward thinking, a simply lethal cocktail of grind and drive: a deeply infectious groove combined with funky bass and distorted vocals. HELL can really pick a winner every time. It's as if he can smell the talent, and with HELL's esteemed seal of approval, CAPITAN COMMODORE is sure to go a long way.
