Peloquinn – After The Meal (EP – Stridente Records)
Genre/Influences: Minimal-Electro, Electro-Wave.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Fabio Longo is an Italian musician who got previously involved with different projects dealing with different styles of music. Peloquinn saw the daylight in 2015. “After The Meal” features five songs.
Content: This EP features the title song plus 2 remixes and a kind of B-side track plus 1 remix. It’s not an easy thing defining this project, but there’s a kind of dreamy Electro-Pop coming through “After The Meal”. “The Mystery Of The Crow” coming up sounds dreamy as well while carried by a melodic, sad tune. The remixes bring diversity and have been accomplished by Beatcore Machine (side-project of Artcore Machine) and Zelt. The last song is a shortened edit of the title song.
+ + + : What I like in this EP is the mysterious atmosphere reinforced with the somewhat ghost-like vocals. The slow tempo of the tracks perfectly fits to the song, this way empowering the enigmatic sphere. “After The Meal” is a cool song, but “The Mystery Of The Crow” could have been a title song as well. Each song has been remixed and each remix is adding a cool bonus. I especially recommend listening to the remix of “The Mystery Of The Crow” by Zelt revealing an intriguing guitar playing, which has something Eastern like.
– – – : This EP is a cool listening, but can’t really take me by surprise. I’m missing something extra in the production; some extra power or a carrying lead. I personally prefer the B-side song instead of the title track.
Conclusion: Peloquinn is an interesting project, but I’m sure there’s more potential hiding behind this artist.
Best songs: “The Mystery Of The Crow”, “After The Meal”.
