Genre/Influences: Minimal-Electro, Electro-Wave.

Format: Digital, Vinyl.

Background/Info: German formation Rue Oberkampf took me by surprise with their debut album “Christophe-Philippe” released in 2019 on Young And Cold Records. The work revealed a great mix of Minimal-Electro-Wave and EBM. “Negativraum” is their first production on Ant-Zen.

Content: “Negativraum” features two songs, opening with the title-track which is an Electro-Wave orientated piece driven by bleeping sequences, cold synths and Julia’s French spoken vocals. “Caméra – Doom Version” sounds more monotonous and is clearly a B-side cut.

+ + + : I like the good-old single format of this work; a cool title track and a B-side song! Rue Oberkampf confirms to have a nose for composing retro-minimal Electronics while the French vocals have something sexy on top. “Negativraum” is a cool song and debut single for the band on Ant-Zen.

– – – : The B-side song doesn’t exactly add any bonus to the single.

Conclusion: Rue Oberkampf is a cool addition to the Ant-Zen roster, but it also remains a band to watch out for.

Best songs: “Negativraum”.

Rate: (7).
