Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: “Sense For God” is a song taken from the last album “Host” by Janosch Moldau. This German Electro-Pop project has been busy for years now and is progressively getting a larger fanbase while this song entered the famous DAC.
Content: “Sense for God” was not directly my favorite song from “Host”, but the “Single”-edit however reminds us what this project stands for; Janosch Moldau is composing a deeply, melancholic Electro-Pop music. Forget any kind of ‘feel-good’ sensation as the music is driven by a lazy cadence and sad sounding, linear structures. The delicate timbre of voice accentuates the fragility of the work. The “Single”-version is followed by four remixes/edits featuring some clubby versions and even a rough kind of lounge edit.
+ + + : I’m often missing some power boost in the work of this artist. But an EP often is a perfect opportunity to experiment with other elements and that’s why I like both club-minded mixes (cf. “Adriatic Club Mix” and “No Yoga Mix”). It however remains a deeply melancholic and even depressed experience in Electro-Pop. This kind of music will not get you into a happy mood, but I can understand this project is getting more and more positive response to its sad resonating Electro-Pop.
– – – : I’m still not a huge fan of the title track, considering there are much better songs featured on “Host”.
Conclusion: Like it or not, but Janosch Moldau definitely has established a very own Electro-Pop sound.
Best songs: “Sense For God – Adriatic Club Mix”, “Sense For God – No Yoga Mix”, “Sense For God – Single”.
