Ethan Fawkes – You Believe In (Digital EP – Nu Body Records)

Genre/Influences: Dark-techno, techno-body.

Background/Info: And here’s another new release by Belgian producer Ethan Fawkes. Nu Body Records is a label set up by the artist himself together with French producer Fabrice Torricella.

Content: The title cut is a hard piece of techno-body music. It sounds dark, minimal-like and clearly as a wink to Nitzer Ebb. The metallic bass line and Douglas McCarthy-shouts will rapidly evoke Nitzer Ebb with this personal Ethan Fawkes touch on top.

Remixes have been made by Dave Inox, Son Of Chaos and the less familiar Halv Dröm.

+ + + : “You Believe In” sounds a bit as an ode to Nitzer Ebb. That’s always tricky business, but the song and most of the remixes are cool and ultra danceable. This is music to party to! The bass line is really great, but I also have to say a word about Ethan Fawkes’ great shouts. There also are phenomenal remixes by Dave Inox and Son Of Chaos. Dave Inox added some cool acid sequences while Son Of Chaos accentuated the EBM touch.

– – – : The link with Nitzer Ebb is maybe a little bit too explicit. There’s less originality, but in the end there’s efficiency…

Conclusion: This is another great and powerful techno-body cut by the Belgian Terence Fixmer. Nu Body Records is an appropriate label for this kind of music.

Best songs: “You Believe In”, “You Believe In – Son Of Chaos Remix”, “You Believe In – Dave Inox Remix”.

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.
