🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: D’n’B, Breakbeats, Acid.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: Hailing from Kazan (Russia) Fobos Hailey has been busy for numerous years now composing music but also doing promotion, organizing festivals, taking part in radio broadcast, DJing etc.

Content: “Reduction” brings you into the dynamic universe of Breakbeat driven music. The songs are instrumentals and also  featuring explicit, filtered sequences but also softer parts with Acid-like sound treatments.

+ + + : This work reminds me of  the power and energy of The Prodigy and related formations but without vocals. Both debut cuts are pure adrenaline boosts.

– – – : “Space Flowers” is the single cut that couldn’t convince me for being too soft and without Breakbeats.

Conclusion: A somewhat different release to the French Tripalium roster although one reflecting power and energy.

Best songs: “Discrete 4”, “Reduction”, “Bad Teacher”.

Rate: 7½.

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.
