Genre/Influences: Minimal, experimental-techno.
Background/Info: Behind this project is hiding Miguel López Mora (Spanish producer) and the Placebo bassist Stefan Olsdal. Both musicians passion for electronic rock and classic music brought them together.
Content: “Rebellion” features 4 songs and is a rather surprising, and exciting electronic creation joined by a string quartet. The title song is driven by an amazing and deep vibrating bass line plus dark and somewhat technoid electronics. The song “War” sounds more into wafting sound sensation and is a little bit soundtrack-inspired.
“Rebellion” was remixed by Dave Clarke and Alex Guerra. Both artists injected a true minimal style to the remixes and both remixes are carried by dark and mysterious vibes and intelligent sound minimalism.
+ + + : Intelligent and minimal sounding title song.
– – – : The B-side song is nothing special and rather different from the title track.
Conclusion: “Rebellion” is an interesting and minimal-driven electronic release featuring an unexpected side of Stefan Olsdal.
Best songs: “Rebellion”, “Rebellion – Alex Guerra Remix”.
