VOOV stands for Violation Of Ordinary Values and was a project by Christian Graupner, who was also a member of Futurhythm. “It’s Anything You Want It To Be, And It’s A Gas” is an memorable title and sounds like a manifesto for the gas mask generation.
The CD version contains five interpretations of the theme. The intoxicating intro of “Smoke Machine” invites to an ecstatic trip, to the world of mutated sound samples and rolling arpeggios, and “Strobe Light” adds a staccato of helium-treated voices. All valves are opened in “Oxygen Mask”, that grows to a bleepy and sweaty workout with UK hardcore influences. As a CD bonus, “3-D Trance” is overrun by a menacing and endless synth avalanche, which stretches the track to over nine minutes. All that is just pure fun.
