Genre/Influences: Electro-Industrial, Experimental, Noise.
Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Background/Info: Kadaitcha is an Ukrainian duo driven by Yurii Samson and Andrii Kozhukhar. Their music has been introduced as exploring ‘organic aspects of Noise, Post-Industrial and archaic aesthetics – an extreme experience for another dimension.’ They previously released a few albums and this year joined hands together with Ant-Zen to unleash their newest opus.
Content: The album stands for an eclectic production moving from Electro-Industrial stuff driven by slow rhythms and ghost-like vocals to Industrial & Experimental cuts reminding me of an imaginary transposition from Psychic TV into 2023. You also will notice that some passages sound like pure improvisation creating an apocalyptic sensation and a true Noise chaos.
+ + + : Kadaitcha definitely have created an own style and approach which sounds Industrial and Experimental but still Electronic on one side and moving at the edge of Noise on the other. It sounds to me as a sound collage creating an imaginary bridge between 80s Experimental music and contemporary formats.
– – – : I’m less into the more chaotic- and Noise parts of the work.
Conclusion: Kadaitcha is an interesting and precious addition to the Ant-Zen roster; an unpredictable album but always connected with Industrial music.
Best songs: “Knife”, “Seed”, “Claw”.
