Somewhere en route between the Brooklyn Dust Brothers and Manchester's Chemical Brothers you will find the Vikings. Not, not in Minnesota...and no, not the ones Robert Plant used to like to make the odd reference to and sing about. I'm talking about London’s own Viking Trance. They riff like Daft Punk but have carved out their own style. It's one thing to be electric, quite another to be eclectic. Viking Trance accomplishes both goals. Just check out “The Psy Rock Shuffler” for proof. With enough exposure, the Viking Crew might be serious contenders for conquering the mainstream, all the while on their own terms. Buy music here.
[And just cuz we're talking about Vikings and stuff... how about a little Techno Viking! -ED]
