Sleepless Droids – I (EP – Sleepless Droids)

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

Genre/Influences: Techno-Industrial.

Format: Digital.

Background/Info: I remember this Australian solo-project driven by Aaron Potter from a previous work released a few years ago now. “I” features six new cuts.

Content: The sound and influences have evolved towards a harder, bouncing Techno-Industrial exposure. The tracks are featuring sampled vocal lines while you’ll also discover passages moving into a true Cinematic approach.

+ + + : Sleepless Droids took me by surprise achieving a tour de force which reminds me of sound guru Seb Komor. This is an elaborated production carried by strong bass lines, multiple effects and noises plus a constant power emerging from the heavy, danceable, kicks. “Night Stalker” and “Made Of Wires” both are my favorites for their devastating energy.

– – – : I’m missing a few more spoken samplings or even real vocal lines.

Conclusion: This is a great, modern, Industrial-Techno piece.

Best songs: “Night Stalker”, “Made Of Wires”, “Ungod”, “Dystopia”.

Rate: 8½.

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.
