Viking’s Choice: Replicants Live On In Perturbator’s Dark Synths
May 16, 2014

We’re only five years away from Ridley Scott’s 1982 vision of a retro-futuristic Los Angeles, when all that stands between human and biorobotic android is the Voight-Kampff machine. But the dark tones and moral ambiguity of Blade Runner never left the film’s cult fans — particularly those beguiled by Vangelis‘ synth-driven soundtrack.

Performing as Perturbator, Parisian musician James Kent is one of the foremost replicants, er, disciples of the expanding retro-synth movement. In fact, Dangerous Days, his third album as Perturbator in only two years, shares a name with the exhaustive three-and-a-half-hour (!) documentary included in Blade Runner: The Final Cut.
