Genre/Influences: Electronic, lounge-pop.
Content: “Golden Life” is not exactly the kind of work I expected to get released on Distortion Productions. The songs are into groovy sequences and mainly featuring a kind of lounge approach mixed with some elements of pop music. Some passages are quite sensual and especially when joined with some spoken like vocals.
+ + + : The least I can say is that “Golden Life” is a well-crafted piece of music. It also is the kind of sound you can fully enjoy when sitting in a lazy chair and enjoying sunshine and drinking a cocktail in good company. The sensuality running through this work is pleasant. Trade Secrets also reveal the open-minded spectrum of Distortion Productions which has used to get us familiar with other –and more underground-like productions.
– – – : I’m not that convinced this is the right label for Trade Secrets or the right band for the label.
Conclusion: The production is not bad at all, although it feels a bit like going to the movies to watch a horror movie but getting a romantic picture instead.
Best songs: “Deaux”.
