Re:drum – New Folk (EP – Tripalium Records)

🇺🇦 Side-Line stands with Ukraine - Show your Support

Genre/Influences: Breakbeats.

Format: Digital, Vinyl. 

Background/Info: Re:drum is an Ukrainian artist based in Odessa. He joined hands together with French label Tripanium to unleash four cuts. 

Content: This work is driven by the power of Breakbeats which is clearly reminding the magic of The Prodigy. But it’s more than only dynamic beating patterns. You’ll also notice Eastern inspired sounds, fragmented vocals and Trance-driven guitar-like sounds. 

+ + + : I like Breakbeats for their power and energy injecting a great tempo. It’s not always that easy to mix it with other influences but Re:drum did it a true original- and efficient way. I like the Eastern atmosphere running through “Vietnam” and the power of “Awp India”. 

– – – : It’s a pity the work is only an EP as Re:drum tastes like more.

Conclusion: Good-old Breakbeats are still hot. 

Best songs: “Vietnam”, “Awp India”.

Rate: 7½.

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.
