Genre/Influences: EBM, Electro-Pop, Body-Pop.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Mexican artist and label owner Dimitri Berzerk last year released his debut-album “Nineteen Eighty Four”. He previously released several noticeable EP’s featuring guest singers while he also got a name for the endless number of remixes he made.

Content: Several songs from the album were already released on EP but we get “Album Versions” instead. Dimitri Berzerk deals with an eclectic Electronic sound which is however strongly inspired by 80s Electro-Wave resulting in danceable and catchy Electro/Body-Pop cuts and other harder EBM-songs. Guest singers are Mario Monk, Sarmen Almond, Franco Doglioli, Isa Zurizi, Juan Contreras, Artur Mas and of course Claus Larsen singing on one of Berzerk’s biggest songs so far “Ctrl+Alt+Del”.

+ + + : I think it has been a good idea to bring some of Dimitri Berzerk’s EP-songs together on a full length format. I like the way he moves from Electro/Body-Pop to harder EBM. It all sounds like he adapts himself to the singers creating a true chemistry. “Ctrl+Alt+Del” remains a phenomenal piece of music but I also have to mention another familiar cut “My Love Is Electric” featuring Franco Doglioli, “The Great Winf Orchestra” and the darker, instrumental, EBM-like “Thirteen Steps”.

– – – : The main challenge for this artist is to get more recognition on the European continent but he definitely has a nose to compose alluring Electro.

Conclusion: If you don’t know the EP’s of Dimitri Berzerk this album will serve as a great introduction.

Best songs: Ctrl+Alt+Del – Album Version”, “My Love Is Electric – Album Version”, “The Great Wind Orchestra – Ava’s Version”, “Thirteen Steps”.

Rate: 8.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
