Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Bolivian solo-project Nohycit last year stroke back with a second full length album. Set up by Ferry Humerez Rios (together with his brother still involved with Adeonesis) the album “Anomico” (2018) was an astonishing official debut.
Content : “En Exilio” moves on there where the previous album stopped. The influences and format haven’t really changed. Nohycit sounds like an electronic power-bomb. The songs are driven by hard-danceable kicks and recovered with awesome leads. The vocals are still sung in Spanish expressing rage and aggression. A few songs are featuring less familiar guest artists Blackgito and Neon Roads.
This opus features 11 tracks plus 4 remixes by Stahlnebel & Black Selket, Bloodconnk7ion, Adeonesis and Nigen.
+ + + : I could make a copy-paste from the “Anomico” review, but the main difficulty and challenge for Nohycit was without a shadow of a doubt to release a new qualitative album. All I can say is that ‘Ferry Nohycit’ totally succeeded in unleashing a new accomplished piece of music. This music is powerful, danceable, somewhat plagued (but that’s what we like listening to dark electronics) and featuring multiple great songs. I especially like the kind of hopping sequences, which together with the rhythmic creates an irresistible groove. “Submission” is my favorite song from the tracklist, but I also have to mention “Abismo”.
– – – : I was a bit disappointed by the remixes, which don’t really add an extra to the work. It’s maybe not a coincidence the Adeonesis remix is the only cool one!
Conclusion: Nohycit confirms the potential revealed at its debut album. This project has enough talent to conquer a wider dark-electro audience!
Best songs: “Sumission”, “Abismo”, “En Exilio”, “Mi Refuguio”.
