Genre/Influences: Electro-wave, minimal-electro. 

Background/Info: Vlimmer is the main project of German artist and label owner Alexander Leonard Donat. He  started in 2015 with an 18-EP series. Chapter “XIII” reveals five new songs.

Content: Vlimmer is a kind of sonic chameleon, which is experimenting with different influences. “XIII” is mixing 80s electro-wave together with minimal sound treatments and a dark-pop touch on top of some songs. The vocals are all in German. 

+ + + : I like the 80s flavor running through this work, which I personally consider as one of the best I’ve heard. The icy atmosphere and minimal sound arrangements create this cool retro touch. I also want to mention each EP features 5 exclusive cuts. 

– – – : Two from the five songs couldn’t totally convince me. 

Conclusion: This EP is probably one of the most recommended one to discover Vlimmer. 

Best songs: “Übertraum”, “Gesellschaftsrücken”, “Kontakt”. 

Rate: (7½).
