Genre/Influences: Dark-Techno, Industrial-Techno.
Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Background/Info: Canadian Orphx-duo strikes back with a new EP featuring four new cuts.
Content: Rich Oddie and Christina Sealey are back with a hard-banging production whereon they’re mixing Dark-Techno with Industrial components and ominous atmospheres empowered with tormented, ghost-like vocal effects.
+ + + : This work moves much further than simply techno and Industrial music. It’s an intelligent fusion of underground styles Orphx transposed into a visionary sound dimension. The dark, tormented, atmosphere they created has something very unique; like dance stuff for dungeons. There’s something to say about each track but I especially recommend listening to “Gateway” and “In The Presence”.
– – – : It’s a pity this is just an EP and not a full length album; I want more from this!
Conclusion: Orphx remain driven through a great and Avant-Garde creative mind.
Best songs: “Gateway”, “In The Presence”.
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.
