Background/Info: Joey Blush is an American producer who became ‘ein Berliner’. He released his work on different labels such as Ant-zen, Basic Unit Records, Aufnahme + Wiedergabe… and finally joined hands together with Sonic Groove to unleash this new vinyl 12”.
Content: Driven by hard kicks and dark electronic loops, Blush Response is one of those visionary techno-artists who composes music for finer tasting music lovers. The production is overwhelmed by impressive sound blasts, accentuating the cold approach of the artist.
It’s a sophisticated production, which excels on the B-side and finally reaches a transcendental apotheosis.
+ + + : Blush Response is pure sound architecture, built up with brilliant sound treatments and constantly experimenting with dark spheres. The A-side sounds cool, but is nothing more than an appetizer for the phenomenal B-side cuts. “Machine God” and “Instrumentality” both are totally accomplished music pieces revealing the genius of this artist. He mixes different elements, which are even touching acid ground.
– – – : I don’t see real minus points; I prefer both B-side cuts, which clearly excel in sound and global production. The A-side is more a kind of teaser for what’s to come.
Conclusion: Sonic Groove once again proves that it’s a label with a nose for talented and visionary dark-techno driven producers. Blush Response will get you dancing to dark loops and obscure vibes.
Best songs: “Machine God”, “Instrumentality”.
