Background/Info: Johann Sebastian moves back to the last year released album of State Of The Union “Indupop”. It was the fifth album of the L.A. based artist. “Industrial” and “Slither” both were originally released on “Indupop” and now exposed to the remixing skills of other artists.
Content: Both songs have been released as “Original Single Remix” revealing the pleasant and happy-like synth-pop music from this artist. “Slither” has been remixed by ES23 and Assemblage 23 while “Industrial” has been remixed by [SITD] , Frozen Plasma and Ruined Conflict.
+ + + : You’ll have to agree that the chosen remixers are quite interesting names for an EP. I especially like the work of Assemblage 23 and Frozen Plasma. Another noticeable cut is the remix of “Industrial” by [SITD] , which seem like having accentuated the lead of the song. No doubt about it, this is the kind of EP that will please to the fans of the band.
– – – : Both title songs weren’t exactly my favorites featured at “Indupop” so I’m not totally convinced by the EP.
Conclusion: State Of The Union has already composed better songs than “Industrial” and “Slither”, but the great list of remixes makes this EP interesting.
Best songs: “Industrial – Frozen Plasma Remix”, “Slither – Assemblage 23 Remix”.
