Bruce Willis Is Dead

Well, not really, obviously. It’s just the title of the new Mr Oizo track that I previously mentioned in my Justice mix post. As you would expect from any Ed Banger record, especially one by the creator of flat beat, it’s a big and dumb electro record in the best way possible.

Huge bassline, ridiculous repetition, sloganeering lyrics and heavy programmed beats. You know what to expect.

Looking back at the track that made him (briefly) famous still fills me with warm feelings of nostalgia and memories of painful headbanging infront of the TV whenever it was inevitably repeated on the music channels. But even when I listen to it now, beyond all the ridiculous hype and the ‘coolness’ of Flat Eric, I can appreciate it for being a genuinely good piece of ‘minimal electro’ first, as well as a piece of marketing genius.
