Genre/Influences: Experimental, cinematographic, neo-classic.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: French artist Kentin Jivek is back on track unleashing a new opus of six tracks. In the end it’s more a sort of mini-album on, which the artist claims to get back to ‘pure songwriting’.

Content: The album has a taste of travelling. Not only some of the titles and the different languages (English, French and Spanish), but also the global sphere running through the work reflect something of a voyage. The title “Argentina” will make you dream away, but it’s a bit similar at “John Malkovich”. Sound-wise the musician mixes elements of cinematographic music together with glitch and neo-classic elements. On top of it all you’ll hear the charismatic voice of the artist.

+ + + : Kentin Jivek always has composed something very personal and definitely apart from other artists and styles. His music is the result from a sonic fusion between very different genres or at least music styles you don’t exactly expect to get merged together. “Chaos Paradise” opening the album is a great exposure of the musician’s approach. It’s a kind of ballad driven by a somewhat melancholic tune and accomplished with experimental electronic treatments and noises in the purest glitch tradition. This minimalism is original and definitely a challenge.

– – – : When I refer to challenges, it’s because you don’t exactly expect this kind of production conquering a wider audience.

Conclusion: If you’re in search of something different, an artist composing his music in a different approach and with another dimension, you better can try this artist.

Best songs: “Venus Into The Moon”, “Chaos Paradise”, “John Malkovich”.

Rate: (6½).
