In two words: crazy, funny. Lyon-based artist Eat Rabbit pushes himself to the limit with this 14-track album that fuses old-school TB808 beats with insane electro elements resulting in a break-dancing frenzy. Sounds like early 808State, Orbital, and even Prodigy if you played Prodigy’s tracks about 30 BPM faster than the original speed (and if they took themselves less seriously).
A meaty synth bass encourages your brain to urinate in the album opener “Waves of Piss” but that’s probably the most serious track on there. Starting with “Monsieur Dauphin” in track 2, you get fast-paced bouncy tracks with vocal snippets, and craziness everywhere. The samples fly about, the beat is relentless and hyperkinetic. Adult content and cuss words abound on “Caviar on a Booty” but then are spaced out childishly, even mixing in the theme from the Batman TV show, making it about as adult as a SpongeBob porno. “The Book of the Dead Seahorses” sounds like a soundtrack for a Wii game featuring murdering rabbits with Attention Deficit Disorder.
In summary: “Kiss the Dolphin” is a zany, tongue-in-cheek soundtrack to the hilarious side-scrolling adventure videogame which we like to call ‘life in the 21st century.’ Trust me, it’s 49 minutes of the most fun you’ll ever have without playing your Wii.
