Genre/Influences: Minimal-techno, IDM.

Background/Info: Jérôme Soudan has been active under the Mimetic moniker since 1998. He released a considerable number of productions and is now back on track with this new EP featuring 3 new songs.

Content: The sound of Mimetic has seriously evolved all over the years, but always hold on a truly fascination for sound creation. The project moved towards more technoid areas, but it first of all remains a creative sound process, which is partly experimental and definitely minimalistic.

The unpolished production sounds raw and a bit dark although focused with refined sequences.

+ + + : Mimetic remains faithful to his familiar sound formula revealing a creative technoid approach based upon great sound treatments. I like the solid bass lines while there’s also a noticeable, blasting tone running through “Sweet Agony”. “Maidenhead” is atypical technoid experiment, which will appeal for lovers of minimalism and dark, danceable electro vibes.

– – – : I can’t say that “Maidenhead” is the best work I’ve heard from Jérôme Soudan. I remember more creative releases, which were more into IDM while this EP sometimes knocks a bit too hard on the door of techno music.

Conclusion: When techno music is revisited by a true sound architect, it becomes a fascinating genre.

Best songs: “Gone”.

Rate: (7).
