Genre/Influences: Minimal-electro, experimental, EBM, techno.
Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Background/Info: Berliner based producer Aga Wilk moves back to Space Factory to unleash a new four-track EP. The debut work “Boy” was also released on David Carretta’s label while the next productions got released on different other record companies.
Content: “Radio Warschau” is clearly driven by retro-EBM influences and minimal-electro formats, but there also is a solid part of experimentalism running through this work. The production of the vocals is pretty robotic-like, but often more getting the effect of a sampling. Sound-wise Aga Wilk also likes to experiment with different effects and noises, resulting in some pretty atmospheric-like passages, but also danceable cuts.
+ + + : From the dark and menacing atmosphere hanging over “Rohdaten” to the more danceable “Regime” the new work by Romance Disaster is clearly mixing different influences. I like both sides although I’ve a little preference for the most danceable cuts. The last song entitled “Polyamory” features Adriano Canzian and that’s another noticeable cut for its retro-like approach of EBM merged with techno. This work is a great vintage-, analogue like production featuring 4 different cuts.
– – – : Different cool songs, but not what I would call an absolute hit, which is missing here.
Conclusion: Romance Disaster moves on composing noticeable productions and I really hope this artist will consider releasing a full length album.
Best songs: “Regime”, “Polyamory feat. Adriano Canzian”.
