Tracques: "Click Track"

Stuart Price (a.k.a Jacques Lu Cont a.k.a. Les Rhthmes Digitales if you're old school) is perhaps best known for producing mainstream dance pop for the likes of Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Pet Shop Boys, but "Click Track" shows the man to have a grimey, hardcore itch that those breadmaking gigs can't scratch. The minimalist bass line that starts the tune could go off in a hundred different directions, but it eventually breaks off into a restless, jittery ADD defying the metronomic insistence of the ticking clock that tries to hold it all in check.

"Click Track" is the first song on an as yet untitled album to be released through Price's own Tracques Records.
