Genre/Influences: Electro-Wave, EBM, Electro-Ambient, Experimental.
Format: Digital, Vinyl.
Background/Info: This single is a split release between German project Thorofon and Eva|3 from the UK. Thorofon is a more familiar name and has already released an impressive discography.
Content: Thorofon has written a retro-EBM/Wave like track, which reminds me of Portion Control. The song by Eva|3 is an instrumental edit, which is mixing Ambient elements with Industrial sound treatments.
+ + + : I was impressed by the good-old Electro-Wave and EBM like “Devil’s Share” by Thorofon. It’s a well-crafted song with a great retro-like spirit and cool vocals on top. The vintage approach comes back on Eva|3 “Théorie: Redux”, which is mainly due to the magic of analogue gear.
– – – : Both songs are totally different from each other so it all depends of your personal taste, but I personally thing the Thorofon song is a few levels higher than the one by Eva|3.
Conclusion: A good-old split 7”, which might become a kind of collector’s item within a few years!
Best songs: Thorofon: “Devil’s Share”.
