Background/Info: Body Pleasure is a Swedish EBM project set up and driven by Erik Hasselberg. After having released some productions during the first decade of the millennium, we can speak about a comeback. This single features two tracks.
Content: “Musik Und Kunst” sounds like a good-old EBM mixed with some Electroclash elements and a Techno-Body touch on top. The single features 2 songs, which are exactly similar except the language; one with German vocals and the other with English vocals.
+ + + : One single cut is not enough to say Body Pleasure is making a successful return, but this single reveals a true potential. It’s not just an EBM emulation, but a mix of different related genres, but in the end I like the old-school approach. It’s also pretty cool to get the same song, but sung in different languages. I personally have a preference for the “Deutschland Mix”.
– – – : Let’s wait for more stuff from Body Pleasure as this is just a single.
Conclusion: Swedish EBM now with German vocals and then with English ones, but definitely old-school driven with a refreshing touch on top.
Best songs: “Musik Und Kunst – Deutschland Mix”.
