Having emerged from five decades of Soviet occupation – which required all music to be funneled through a government-managed label and every singer’s repertoire to be stocked with patriotic songs – over the past 20 years, the big cities of what was formerly the Bloc have been a ripe breeding ground for experimental music. And Vilnius has embraced the change, full force.

Yeah, there’s a monument to Frank Zappa downtown and hard rock fests like Rock Marsas, but there’s no scene as strong here than electronica – which seems like the only thing that can really liven up the big, empty spaces of Soviet architecture. Groups like One Ear Stereo, RyRalio and Metal on Metal have come out of Lithuania and it seems their inheritors, the next electro whizz kids emerging, are The Sneekers. A DJ and production duo consisting of Karolis Labanauskas and Evaldas Mikalauskas, the Sneekers abstain from collaging samples and instead work from scratch to craft funky techno that’s rife with those euphoric, plane-taking-off crescendoes that really get a party going. If you miss electro that uses auto, computerized vocal choruses and wonky, fake turntable screeches, you’re about to be very happy.

The groups big break came when the track “POP (You Got It)” found its way from MySpace to rotation at BBC Radio1, and they’ve kept the buzz going with a slew of remixes. But they’re also constantly producing their own tunes. Their latest EP on Television Rocks is called “Aerobic EP” (TELEROCK016 / release date: 02.07.2010).
