Chris Shape + Dave Inox – Fake Truths (Digital EP – +Closer²)
Genre/Influences: EBM, techno-body music.
Background/Info: This EP is the meeting between Italian producer Cristian Camporesi aka Chris Shape and Spanish producer David Hinojosa aka Dave Inox. The first EP was last year released on International Deejay Gigolo Records while the second EP, and his debut album, was released on Unknown Pleasures Records. “Fake Truths” features one collaborative song between both artists plus one song by Chris Shape and another one by Dave Inox.
Content: The collaborative song entitled “Diss Out” is pure minimal techno-EBM. The bass line might remind you of Front 242. There are a few words running through this song that has been progressively built up.
If you don’t yet know Chris Shape “Dig The Bottom” will be a solid introduction to the heavy techno-body stuff of this artist. The track also features some acid-like sequences. Last, but not least you’ll get a song entitled “Disposable Flags” by Dave Inox, which is pretty minimal-body minded as well.
+ + + : “Diss Out” is a phenomenal song between two talented artists. This is minimal, but intelligent techno-body music revealing outstanding sound treatments. But this is just a teaser for the upcoming track by Chris Shape. This song is close to perfection; it mixes elements of EBM, techno and even acid. The ghost-like vocals totally fit with this dancefloor stumper! If you like Nitzer Ebb remixed by techno music, this track will be a real shock! It’s simply terrific!
– – – : I don’t have any single minus point and just hope that both artists will work together again and why not considering releasing a common album.
Conclusion: This maxi is just perfect, revealing the fine taste of modern EBM. It’s a perfect mix between pure retro-EBM influences and the best of intelligent techno music!
Best songs: “Dig The Bottom”, “Diss Out”.
