Genre/Influences: EBM, body-pop.
Background/Info: Peruvian duo Arian 1 strikes back with a new EP featuring the title song plus 5 remixes.
Content: If you’re already familiar with the work of Arian 1 you’ll rapidly recognize the essence of their work. “Spend The Night” is a very efficient piece of EBM with a poppy touch on top. The vocals are rather clear.
Remixes have been accomplished by Reaxion Guerilla, Die Braut, Gunmaker, Bleeding Corp. and Struck 9.
+ + + : The title song is cool and danceable piece of fresh EBM. The carrying chorus creates a little climax. Among the remixes I especially want to mention the very clubby edit of Reaxion Guerilla and Bleeding Corp. which has accentuated the lead of the song.
– – – : I’m always a bit disappointed getting EP’s with one single song followed by a load of remixes.
Conclusion: Arian 1 confirms their potential and simply talent to compose efficient EBM-driven music. This is a band that deserves more recognition!
