🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Electro-Pop, Ambient-Pop.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Stefan Poiss has taken some of the best cuts from the latest Mind.In.A.Box album “Black & White” and remixed them himself. “Shades Of Gray” is also featuring one exclusive song.

Content: This EP comes as a ‘club’-addition to the latest album. Four songs have been remixes in a harder, club-friendly approach. “New Wave Propaganda” has been remixed in two different versions. “Fire And Lace” is a new song which serves as a cool gift.

+ + + : “Integrate” and “New Wave Propaganda” both were some of my favorite tracks of the album and has been adapted into great, danceable, Space-Pop with again the great vocals of Stefan Poiss on top. The remix of “Lost And Alone” is another great work and a strong debut to this EP. This EP features great dancefloor adaptations and brings Mind.In.A.Box back in the spotlight.

– – – : A new song is always a bonus to an EP but “Fire And Lace” isn’t exactly the best cut from this artist. 

Conclusion: This EP is an essential addition to the “Black & White”-album.

Best songs: “Integrate – Club Mix”, “New Wave Propaganda – Club Mix”, “Lost And Alone – Master Mechanic Remix”.

Rate: 8½.

I have been working for over 30 years with Side-line as the main reviewer. My taste is eclectic, uncoventional and I prefer to look for the pearls, even if the bands are completely unknown, thus staying loyal to the Side-Line philosophy of nurturing new talents.

Since you’re here …

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
