Genre/Influences: Dark-techno, minimal-electro, acid.
Background/Info: French artists David Carretta and Workerpoor have already released previous EP’s together. They’re back on track unleashing this new EP featuring 4 cuts.
Content: The EP covers different influences; taking off with technoid influences mixed with darker, industrial sounds. The title song is somewhat different, but still dark and somewhat into acid sequences.
+ + + : David Carretta is a pioneer in the genre, but also an artist with an endless creative spirit while Workerpoor is one of those talented French artists from the newer generation. Both artists are pretty complementary, which mainly comes through at the title song. I like the sound intelligence running through this cut, simply proving that there’s much more than the usual and cheap techno productions. Among the remixes I have a preference for the job by Jensen Interceptor (a band I highly recommend) and Assembler Code.
– – – : Speaking for myself I already heard more convincing EP’s produced by both techno fellows and I especially refer to “I.N.T.R.U.D.E.R.S.”.
Conclusion: Carretta and Workerpoor explore the good-old acid influences resulting in a great title song.
Best songs: “Acid 90”, “Do You Know This Room – Jensen Interceptor & Assembler Code Remix”.
