Genre/Influences: Minimal-electro, minimal-EBM.
Background/Info: Behind this Italian production is hiding Adriano Canzian, Massimo Bastasi & Mauro Copeta (both involved in Hard Ton).
Content: The sound and influences and somewhat comparable to the work of Adriano Canzian. We’re moving through a minimal-electronic universe featuring great retro electronics and solid EBM-minded bass lines.
This EP features the title track, remixes by David Carretta (Space Factory owner) plus Romance Disaster (which already released an EP on Space Factory) and a sexy, groovy B-side cut.
+ + + : I like the retro-minimalism The Fool’s Stone are dealing with. David Carretta’s remix only empowers and accentuates this approach. The title song is featuring half-spoken like vocals, but David Carretta accomplished a great edit without the vocal parts. I also like the real hot B-side track “Silicone”.
– – – : The title song is cool, but not the best version from the EP. I definitely prefer the harder and more minimal edit by David Carretta.
Conclusion: This is the kind of production you can only, but expect on a label such as Space Factory. The Fool’s Stone is the perfect fusion between good-old EBM influences and contemporary minimal-electronics with a techno flavor on top!
Best songs: “Futura – David Carretta Remix”, “Futura”, “Silicone”.
