Om­nikrom

Trop ba­nane! Sabo­teur

Montreal Gazette - - Arts | Cd Reviews - T’CHA DUN­LEVY

Mon­treal trio Om­nikrom has never hid­den its rev­er­ence for French rap crew TTC, but on this full-length de­but, the for­mer makes a splash of its own. Big bass, shim­mer­ing synths and stag­gered, sing-songy raps dom­i­nate, while the beats put things over the top. Om­nikrom bridge the worlds of crunk and bub­blegum dance-pop. The dis­turbingly sexy ditty Danse la pou­tine is sure to be a smash hit on home turf. Été hit is a syn­th­hop rump-shaker; Nanananah is ’80s cheese with an au­di­ble TTC twist; and con­trary to the group’s of­ten ex­plicit tom­fool­ery, Elles is a re­spect­ful ode to their fe­male coun­ter­parts. Guest pro­duc­tion by Ghis­lain Poirier and DJ Cham­pion ce­ment the cross­over ap­peal.
