Genre/Influences: Dark-Techno, Tribal-Dance.

Format: Digital, CD.

Background/Info: Two years after the  surprising debut-album “Transhuman Dystopia” we get new work from Rabbits Wear Boots. This project is the ‘dance’ version of Hybryds, the legendary Belgian Tribal/Ritual/Industrial project by Sandy Nijs aka ‘Magthea’.

Content: All I can say is that the new work moves on from where “Transhuman Dystopia” stopped; pure Dance energy mixing different Techno-driven elements together. From Dark-Techno to Psy-Trance to Minimal-Techno and pure Experimental, groovy, passages this work is recovered with multiple spoken samplings featuring passages with mystic, female, chants.

+ + + : What I like in this project is the ‘no nonsense’ attitude; this is pure fun, but also great stuff to dance on. It sounds diversified so in the end it’s rather difficult considering it has been all composed by the same musician. I like the mystic side of “Artificial Cybergenic” but also the powerful “Bright Future” driven by a solid, and somewhat EBM bass line. 

– – – : The work is maybe a bit too versatile but honestly, I don’t care.. and as the title indicates: “No Style No Rules’!

Conclusion: If you’re not into Techno music Rabbits Wear Boots gone make you love it!

Best songs: “Artificial Cybergenic”, “Bright Future”, “Deep Dark”.

Rate: 8.

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.
