Genre/Influences: EBM, Body-Pop, Technoid.
Background/Info: Greek artist Stelios Goulas aka Adsol released several digital singles this year. He sent us this unofficial compilation featuring the releases of 2023.
Content: Adsol moves on experimenting with EBM while injecting other influences to get an eclectic underground electro format. All songs are instrumentals so it in a way creates a Cinematic-EBM sensation.
+ + + : Adsol is a project with a true potential. There’s a solid and intelligent EBM touch while I also like the sound production of the work. From melodic sequences to pure, vintage, and cold synth lines, the tracks also have a true danceable appeal. I also noticed a more Techno-driven element on one of the cuts.
– – – : The single regret is the total absence of vocals. This music needs a few vocal parts to get it more accomplished.
Conclusion: With some extra elements -but mainly vocals, this project could be really interesting.
Best songs: “Black Moon”, “Ultrasonic: Ultraviolet”, Cronos Device”.
