Genre/Influences: Industrial, electronic.
Background/Info: Sleepless Droids is an Australian project set up by producer Aaron Potter around 2011. After a first EP (cf. “Decision”) released in 2012 we’d to wait for 2020 to get new stuff from this project. The EP features two tracks plus one remix.
Content: “Dust” which might be considered as the title song is a somewhat raw piece of electronics driven by a rather slow rhythm and passionate vocals on top. The other cut (cf. “Believe”) is definitely softer and sounds as a B-side cut. We next get a remix of “Dust”, which has been seriously boosted and made for the dancefloor.
+ + + : “Dust” is a cool song, but especially the remix sounds great. It’s not only about the empowered rhythmic, but there’re some pretty cool sound arrangements reminding me of Juno Reactor. I don’t want to compare both projects as it’s just about some sound treatments.
– – – : Two songs are not enough to get an idea about the potential of this project, but I hope to hear more from Sleepless Droids soon.
Conclusion: I especially recommend this work for the bouncing “Substance”-edit of “Dust”.
Best songs: “Dust (Substance)”.
