DOPE STARS INC.

DOPE STARS INC. - 21st Century Slave


After the brilliant EP ‘Criminal Intents’, the complete new studio album from the digital warriors is now finally released. And unlike the implication of the album title, DOPE STARS INC. aren’t slaves of the technological world. They’re loud, warlike, angry and political. They use the medium of cybertech but combine it with the fury of punk. They combine flimmering sequencers with aggressive guitars; distorted vocals with persistently infectious melodies.

And they arise out of the sordid darkness of modern cities to live on the edge of the abyss. Shimmering outlaws of the virtual reality who fight the system by using its own methods. For a long time now, their music has not only been influenced by the elements of cyberpunk, new metal, electro, industrial and rock. DOPE STARS INC. are above all the musically realised version of William Gibson’s ‘Neuromancer’, Neal Stephenson’s ‘Snow Crash’ and in terms of their sound, the further development of films such as ‘Bladerunner’. They show us the world how it is. Dirty, shimmering, full of neon glare and beautiful light. But between all the superficialities are concealed feeling, but above all furious, rebels who tear down the boundaries and defy all categorisation: and all the while still damn young, loud and sexy. The album also shouldn’t be without a few sensitive love songs. And just as SIGUE SIGUE SPUTNIK once celebrated ‘21st Century Boy’, DOPE STARS INC. really have become symbols of the new era. This is the sound of the new millennium.

The first edition of ‘21st Century Slave’ is released as a lavish 6-panelled digipak with an extensive booklet full of sombre illustrations which perfectly sets the visual scene for the story and which can be described without over-exaggeration as a work of art.

A collectors’ piece which no fan of DOPE STARS INC. should be without!
