French DJ and producer Simon Delacroix writes, records and performs under the moniker the Toxic Avenger. Delacroix has developed a reputation for a sound that fuses club-ready, pulsing electronica with a pop sensibility — in some way, it reminds me quite a bit of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method and others, thanks in part to the slick production style. “Chase II,” the latest single off Delacroix’s forthcoming album under the Toxic Avenger moniker, Romance and Cigarettes possesses a cosmic glow, thanks to the electronics which pulse and sizzle throughout the track like lasers, synths, and rises and gigantic drops – it’s club ready and yet playfully experimental.
