Genre/Influences: Techno-body, minimal-EBM.
Background/Info: Victor Zuñiga Rico is a Mexican DJ who from time to time also releases his own music. “Lucifer Told Me”. This EP features 3 songs plus a remix.
Content: The sound is clearly driven by techno-body influences. It sounds minimal-like, a bit dark and danceable. Some fragmented ghost-like vocals and other female spoken vocals –on the title song can be noticed. “Lucifer Told Me” was remixed by the famous compatriot DMT Berzerk.
+ + + : “Lucifer Told Me” is a great title song, but both cuts could have been title songs as well. So this is a great and efficient piece of music mixing aggressive EBM sequences and dark-techno minimalism. The dry kicks are pure retro-like, and still an essential element of this kind of production. SFX DJ stands for contemporary EBM, which is made for dancefloors.
– – – : The songs are quite classical pieces in this genre of music, but the fans will not complain. I’ve already heard more inspiring remixes from DMT Berzerk.
Conclusion: SFX DJ is a cool discovery from Mexico and will please the fans of avant-garde EBM.
Best songs: “Lucifer Told Me”, La Discoteca Del Diablo”, “In Fact”.
