Genre/Influences: Electroclash, minimal-electronics.
Background/Info : Last yearFrench Kompromat duo took me by surprise unleashing the brilliant debut album “Traum Und Existenz”. Driven by Vitalic and Rebeka Warrior this project is now back again unleashing this EP with one new song and a cover version of DAF’s “Der Räuber Und Der Prinz”
Content: The style and influences both remain pretty close to the sound approach of the album. Kompromat is mixing minimal-electronics and EBM together with a technoid production. In the end it all sounds like they reactivated the good-old demons of electroclash music.
The songs have been accomplished with analogue effects in the truest 80s spirit. The DAF cover has been edited in two different versions.
+ + + : This is exactly what I expect from a single or EP; danceable songs to set dancefloors on fire! I like Kompromat’s minimalism and especially the fusion between EBM and techno is absolutely successful. The opening cut “Das Grab” sounds cool, but the way they transposed DAF’s “Der Räuber Und Der Prinz” into a minimal, alien-like electroclash song is absolutely phenomenal. I also like Rebeka Warrior’s sterile way of singing with her sexy French accent on top!
– – – : When you’re listening to such a great release, you can only regret there are only 2 (or 3) cuts on it!
Conclusion: I’m nearly sure Gaby Delgado liked this EP…
Best songs: “Das Grab”, ““Der Räuber Und Der Prinz”, “Der Räuber Und Der Prinz – Radio Edit”.
