With his fourth release on sonig, "Elepha In Da Flash", DJ ELEPHANT POWER runs danger of jeopardizing reputation as an anti-perfectionist, because he (again) does it all totally different. Anyone who has ever experienced Nicolas Baudoux as a DJ will have fallen in love with his nimble fingers and the dynamic acceleration of pitch in his live sets. Today, he is part of a phalanx of DJs which have beaten a path between laptop-music and live performances to create the exceptional . He revitalizes the dancefloor with new musical styles which go against a uniform functionality. The style "Skweee" is just such a mutant product of innovative DJ culture (besides other liaisons between Dubstep, Baile Funk and Electro, Digi-Dub or Acid-House). On his new album ELEPHA IN DA FLASH, Nicolas Baudoux still follows stylistic elements of Skweee, but as a pioneer of this particular style, he has already created a new subgenre. The melodies are less ornate and differ considerably from those of the protagonists of the Scandinavian labels HARMÖNIA and FLÖGSTA DANCEHALL in so far as they are more demanding and almost coercive. The densely arranged and scope-widening tracks still contain the dramatic effects of Dubstep but also include a healthy dose of 8-bit warmth which takes the edge off the far view into darkness. Baudoux swiftly assembles a very modern and danceable "Art-Electro" – and one reason may be that he found acid house’s pure euphoria just a bit too silly – and thus delivers a grandiose overture for an electronic funk genre (complete with anecdotic Mr. Oizo-quotes). Contrary to Scandinavian funk, only a small number of prototypical 8bit sounds can be heard. And as far as DJ Elephant Powers’ musical background is concerned, let it be said that on this album he avoids a dominance of instruments without a plug.
