Background/Info: Belgian Damien De Coene is mainly known for his hard power-noise project Charles Razeur although his first project remains Renoffski. This artist released an impressive number of productions in a rather short lapse of time and is now back on track with this self-titled EP featuring two cuts.
Content: This work features two cuts, which each hold you in their grip for 10 minutes. Both cuts are driven by repetitive power-electronic loops without any real variation.
+ + + : You have to like repetitive music and the harder electronic style of power-electronics to enjoy this work. It’s a kind of ‘anti-music’ format, which sounds to me as the contemporary approach of artists active during the 80s.
– – – : The global approach and production sounds a bit too easy and monotonous because of the repetitive formula.
Conclusion: This work is a kind of monotonous, repetitive sonic torture, which will hold you in its grip 20 minutes long.
Best songs: “Trankb”.
