Blush Response – Shockpoint (EP – Megastructure)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Industrial-Techno.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Berlin (Germany) based Joey Gonzalez aka Blush Response strikes back with four new pieces.

Content: The sound remains driven by hard-pumping bass drums and dark, hypnotic, sound treatments. The work is sophisticated although given me the sensation of improvised parts. I noticed some fragmented vocals (-effects) on the last cut.

+ + + : Blush Response composes Techno music for dark souls and future generations living in the underworld. It’s a complex-like composition taking off in a hypnotic way. “Demon In Pain” is however my favorite piece for its great sound treatments and bouncing effect.

– – – : Quite curiously  the title track is the single one that can’t convince me for being too Experimental. It all sounds like pure improvisation resulting in a chaotic piece.

Conclusion: Blush Response remains a unique project symbolizing the darker and unexplored side of Techno music.

Best songs: “Demon In Pain”, “Chronovisor”.

Rate: 8.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
