Genre/Influences: Minimal-electro, experimental.
Background/Info: Lukas Barovka is active under the Rasky Sadagr moniker and has released several digital singles & EP’s.
Content: “Sacrifice II” moves on there where “Sacrifice” left off. The artist has accomplished a minimal-electro format, which for both debut cuts has been driven by a hard kick making the music danceable. There are no real vocals, but here again Rasky Sadagr likes injecting some female groans. The tracklist also features a live track plus 2 short cuts revealing a more explicit experimental-electro side.
+ + + : I’m still in for the minimalism of this project, which is mixed with harder, danceable kicks. That’s why I prefer both debut cuts. There also is some darker touch hanging over the work, which gets it intriguing. “Bad Scene – Original Mix” featuring Valéry sounds as one of the best cuts I’ve heard from this artist.
– – – : After a rather cool debut, the last 3 tracks are less convincing. They’re a bit short, but especially suffer from a lack of elaboration.
Conclusion: If you’re into pure experimental minimalism, this project might be interesting to discover. I’m convinced the best is yet to come…
Best songs: “Bad Scene – Original Mix”, “Intro”.
