Genre/Influences: Techno, Minimal-Electro, Experimental.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: There’s not a lot of information available on Texture Droite. We know it’s a French project and that a previous single has been released in 2018. “Vibrant Pixel” features ten songs.
Content: The sound canvas of this project is ultra varied. The first song takes off with some Ambient-Electro driven by a slow cadence, but quite progressively the work becomes groovier and Techno-inspired. Several songs have been inspired by Techno elements, but you also will notice pure Minimalistic Electro and Experimental passages. Sound treatments have something pretty vintage-like, but transposed into a modern touch. The last song sounds like space bleeps put on Techno music.
+ + + : Texture Droite clearly tries to create a refreshing sound featuring innovative elements. The sound treatments are pretty retro-driven and yet it sounds modern. The global sphere supporting this work has something exciting. I like the global minimalism carried by some heavy bass lines, “A Vibrant Touch Offfff” being one of the greatest exponents from this release.
– – – : I sometimes miss a few vocals and/or effects/samplings. I also noticed two tracks (cf. “Eg An Infrequent Gazing” and “The Long Leap”), which are less inspired.
Conclusion: Texture Droite released an interesting debut revealing a band with a creative approach in Techno music.
Best songs: “A Vibrant Touch Offfff”, “Color-Field-Dancing”, “Floppy Drift”, “Hi Res Vagueness”.
