Romina Cohn / Naiborg – Acid Call + Acid Call Rmx (EP – Space Factory)

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

Genre/Influences: Acid, Techno, IDM, EBM.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: This work resulted from the collaborative efforts between Romina Cohn (Argentina) and Naiborg (a project which also worked together with DJ Hell). These are two separate releases; first there was the EP “Acid Call” featuring four songs and next the EP “Acid Call Rmx” featuring five remixes.

Content: The original work sounds like modern Technoid-Acid music; pretty underground driven with minimalistic sound treatments and touching ground with IDM and even EBM. The sterile timbre of voice of Romina Cohn reminds me of 80s Electro-Wave projects and has this magical touch. Remixes have been accomplished by Julien Mercier, Back To The Wave, Jauzas The Shining and Final Grll (2 remixes).

+ + + : I really love the minimalism of the original “Acid Call”-songs bringing different influences together; definitely acid and techno-like but also IDM and Electro-Wave. The vocals are adding a true extra to the production and makes it accessible for a wider audience. This music is going to make you dance to trance.

– – – : The remixes are cool and adding diversity compared to the original edits but without the similar acid magic.

Conclusion: Great, modern, Acid-Techno vibes with an 80s touch on top.

Best songs: “Dance To Forget U”, “Your Soul”, “Kiss Me I Want To Make Love” + “Kiss Me I Want To Make Love – Back From The Wave Remix”.

Rate: 8.

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.
