Genre/Influences: Electro-pop, dance-pop.
Background/Info: The “Electropop”-series became one of the most exciting compilations in the electro-pop genre style, but especially a sonic canvas to discover Conzoom artists and new, upcoming talents. One of the main particularities of the sampler also is the number of “Extended”-versions. This new series features 14 bands!
Content: This new edition of “Electropop” reveals an impressive number of less familiar pop artists. The main influence running through the album remains electro-pop although there also is a solid dance input recovering most of the songs. The first and main part is pretty dance-pop orientated, but progressively moves towards a more familiar electro-pop sound during the second part.
+ + + : I like a compilation on, which you can discover a lot of new names and that’s precisely what this sampler stands for. Next to rather new names I also noticed some more familiar artists, getting us back to A Different Drum (a label we’re missing) and the genius of an artist like Robert Marlow. This is a sampler that will make you feel happy and get you into the dance.
– – – : The more into dance-pop formations are not the most exciting ones. I noticed cool songs, but no real hits!
Conclusion: “Electropop” is a compilation-series I enjoy and which always gives me the opportunity to discover new names. I can’t affirm this vintage is the best one to date, but it remains a great sampler.
Best bands: Robert Marlow, Rroyce, Midnight Resistance, Shelter.
