Genre/Influences: EBM, minimal-electronics.
Content: I didn’t know what to expect, but from the very first notes I heard pure vintage and minimal-like EBM, which simply became a trademark of Unknown Pleasures Records. The Spanish spoken vocals might remind you a bit of the legendary “Los Niños Del Parque”-hit from Liaisons Dangereuses while the sound might evoke good-old DAF souvenirs with an extra, contemporary touch on top.
+ + + : Both title tracks are simply brilliant and in my opinion the best part of contemporary EBM. It definitely sounds vintage-like and yet features this touch of modernism. It reminds me of some legendary 80s formation at one side and the contemporary minimalism at the other. I guess it’s not a coincidence if artists like The Horrorist and Adriano Canzian were asked for a remix. There’s something positive to say about each of the remixes, but my favorite one is “Danger Signal” remixed by Iron Court.
– – – : My main regret is that such an exceptional piece of music is only available on digital format. This is the kind of EBM deserving a CD print!
Conclusion: Dave Inox is a name to keep in mind and who definitely gets my full support. This artist has found the key to compose alluring EBM.
Best songs: “MissConceptual feat. HIV+”, “Danger Signal”, “Danger Signal – Remix by Iron Court”.
