Genre/Influences: Techno-Body, EBM.
Background/Info: Back From The Wave is a French project which has already released a few works. They signed to Space Factory Records to unleash their newest EP featuring three tracks plus two remixes.
Content: All songs are driven by solid bass lines and Techno-Body vibes with space-like strings and effects on top. Remixes have been accomplished by Panthera and David Carretta.
+ + + : This project sounds like a true addition to the Space Factory roster. According to me all tracks could be used as title-song which says something about the potential of Back From The Wave. The sound is the perfect offspring between EBM and Dark-Techno influences. David Carretta boosted the title cut with a harder and faster kick while he also added extra, menacing sequences. This is the absolute highlight. Panthera also achieved a powerful remix of “Corrosives Influences”. Last but not least the last cut “C345B” sounds like an extra dancefloor cut.
– – – : I don’t have true minus points to mention nevertheless I always regret when a remix by another artist is more convincing than the original edit.
Conclusion: This is a solid EP for Techno-Body heads.
Best songs: “Psychic – David Carretta Remix”, “Corrosives Influences – Panthera Remix”, “Psychic”, “C345B”, “Corrosives Influences”.
