Aesthetische – We Follow Blindly (Digital EP – Alfa Matrix)
Genre/Influences: Techno-body music.
Background/Info: Guilherme Pires and Fabricio Viscardi better known as Aesthetische are back on track with new electronic dance-stuff. They already invited a few guest singers like Mari Kattman who’s a rather familiar guest now and Diana S of Junksista.
Content: “We Follow blindly” is a phenomenal title song featuring the sensual Mari Kattman. It’s pure techno-body music with a trance-dance touch on top and sound treatments appealing to fans of Seb Komor. The song has been remixed by Neuroticfish accentuating the dance aspect while another remix has been accomplished by Aesthetische themselves.
Two more new songs have been featured. One features the Junksista singer revealing a hard-dance style. The other cut again confirms the writing skills of the band revealing raw sound manipulations.
+ + + : Aesthetische stands for modern underground electronics mixing traditional EBM standards together with technoid experiments. The result stands for a progressive and ultra-danceable sound, which especially for the title song is totally accomplished. Aesthetische knows the way to make people move while they also have a nose to find the right singer.
– – – : The trap when experimenting with techno and dance music sometimes is to become a bit too ‘dance’-like and that’s precisely what I feel on “Breathe”.
Conclusion: “We Follow Blindly” is an appropriated title when you like electronics and you listen to Aesthetische. This Brazilian formation consists of real sound wizards and this EP already shows their great talent.
Best songs: “We Follow Blindly feat. Mari Kattman”, “Eye On You”.
