Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Content: If you’re a bit familiar with the Sonic Groove roster you know what to expect. Daniel Myer transformed himself into a Techno artist although holding on to more familiar influences like IDM and Industrial. The album sounds hard and pumping but still features the familiar sound intelligence and knowledge. A few ghost-like vocal effects have been added now and then.
+ + + : Daniel Myer is an artist who feels comfortable with multiple music styles. I’m not saying “Hingabe” sounds like a total surprise but it has been clearly infused by Dark-Techno elements. The main strength of the work is the sophisticated sound production; featuring great and intelligent sound treatments and Industrial elements while you’ll also notice more atmospheric layers in the background reminding Haujobb. “Hingabe” is a great opus featuring an impressive list of cool tracks. Notice by the way Static Sky, Skelesys, DSX and Hypnoskull have been featured each on one song.
– – – : I don’t see real minus points.
Conclusion: This work might be one of the most sophisticated releases from Sonic Groove; visionary Techno music!
Best songs: “Angst”, “Reale Angst”, “Tactics Dub featuring Hypnoskull”, “Atomic Overkill”, “Ohnmacht featuring DSX”.
