Genre/Influences: Electronic, experimental.
Background/Info: Rasky Sadagr (aka Lukas Barovka) is a German artist who already released a few digital releases. “Sacrifice” features 5 tracks.
Content: It’s not that easy to define the sound of this project, but there clearly is a minimal- and experimental electro taste running through the tracks. Both opening cuts have been spiced with ‘hot’ female samplings and cold sequences. It clearly has something erotic-like, which is accentuated by the kicks. The other tracks left remain are instrumentals and hold on to the global minimal approach in sound.
+ + + : I enjoyed the minimalistic treatments of this artist, which have something unique while the more classical female samplings inject something ‘sexy’ to the work. Rasky Sadagr sounds cold and intriguing.
– – – : I think it could be interesting considering some real vocals. The track “Neuromancer” is the right illustration vocals –or samplings, can add a real bonus.
Conclusion: I can’t say to have been totally conquered, nevertheless Rasky Sadagr seems to have some potential, which now has to be elaborated.
Best songs: “Instrumental”, “French Extreme II”.
