Genre/Influences: EBM, techno-body.
Background/Info: Two years after their last full length album Massiv In Mensch is ready to unleash their newest album. The single “Badminton” is the teaser to this new opus. It’s also available as a CD featuring one single track.
Content: “Badminton” sounds in the purest tradition of Massiv In Mensch; a perfect mix between EBM elements and a more technoid sound research. The song also features a few vocal lines and funny, but cool samplings of slipping sneakers in a sports hall.
+ + + : “Badminton” is a solid appetizer to welcome the new Massiv In Mensch album. I like the solid bass line mixed with the danceable kick and the few vocal lines.
– – – : This is a ‘real’ single featuring only one single song. I would have liked to get at least one extra song and/or alternative edits of “Badminton”.
Conclusion: “Badminton” is a great single and for sure one of the hardest cuts by Massic In Mensch in years.
Best songs: “Badminton”.
