Genre/Influences: Minimal-EBM, techno-body.
Background/Info: Belgian producer Ethan Fawkes is already back on track. After having released a second full length album he moves on releasing EP’s and singles like hell. “Militia” is a self-released 7” featuring one single cut.
Content: Ethan Fawkes combines EBM and techno music. “Militia” is the perfect illustration of how a great techno-body song has to sound. The song moves straight forward while carried by a solid EBM bass line. There also is a cold electro loop running through the track while the break is pretty trance-minded.
+ + + : “Militia” perfectly illustrates the techno-body skills of Ethan Fawkes. The enraged vocals accentuate the EBM approach. What I especially like with this artist is that every new release sounds different. This is a great song for minimal-EBM dancefloors.
– – – : The only single regret I have is that “Militia” features just one song.
Conclusion: “Militia” is one of the best tracks I’ve ever heard from Ethan Fawkes. I prefer when he explores the EBM path mixed with his dark-techno vibes.
Best songs: “Militia”.
