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”.

Rate: (7½).

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.
