Title: Wob Me
Format: Download Only (MP3 only)
Mixing dub, grime and electro, Bronstibok are back with a new digital release on Basserk. WOB ME contains six new tracks to party with: "Kanja" opens the dance with its semi reggae flavor mixed with energetic fat bass lines followed by "Ooohh" where the syncopated rhythms duet with bass distortions. "Pony pony" mix the previous influences with electro attitude while "Staccato" and "That's good" go for a techno approach. The closing "Wob me" mix grime sounds with a bit of pop attitude on the vocals sounding like an electronic jungle dance anthem.

Ex member of Extasick (band that recorded their album on D-Trash Records) Matthieu Gosselin started Lewsor in 2005 producing his debut album "Rather Die Than Hear That" for What A Fake! Records. That album gave him some exposure that lead him to the French label Audio Trauma. After some years of work, Matthieu can finally release his digital craziness packed into fourteen new tracks where digital punk, breakbeat and distortion hail the "sound hacker" as well as "the musical pirate" who is behind the Lewsor moniker. Sampling orchestras (check "Industrial brass band" and the following "Junkyard girl") and thousand other musical sources Lewsor offers an album where no prisoners are allowed. Naming Prodigy, Venetian Snares, Aphex Twin and Atari Teenage Riot as influences, Matthieu introduces us to a world of a buggy science fiction where velocity isn't the only way to express even if you'll be attacked by wall of distortions and fragmented rhythms as on many tracks we find also melodic threads to follow as well as song structured tracks (check the guitar driven "Backdoor process" or the semi hip-hop "Musical pirate"). There's so much going on into this album that you'll need more spins to check everything. Good one...
Not too much reminds on his well-done previously released limited 7 " Single "Until We Die" / "Severed Head" – that was the first impression after consuming Johan van Roy’s newest effort. With "Die, Motherfucker, Die" he rather returns into his lately discovered fairway. It’s one of his harsh and smashing tunes, very near to what some people would consider as a Hellectro duplicate – luckily he hasn’t forgotten to include some typical SC-capacities. His sense to create dark and ominous sounding introductions, as well as some typical SC-related bass lines and programming skills are still keeping his fans of his early days listening – if not body moving. With the both additional remix contributions by X-FUSION and/or the Mexican C-LEKKTOR the fire keeps on burning under the dancefloor – to answer the question of the musically value behind this business-related action wasn’t requested, so how can I dare to ask??? Comes finally a relatively good b-side entitled "Come Down With Me", whose only flaw can be discovered in the too loud mixed vocals being to much in the center position. That title track in its original version is an awesome and pummeling floor-filler, which gives a nice addition to a possible "best of the best"- SUICIDE COMMANDO tracks compilation. The b-side is okay, the further rest cannot wear off the smell of business-related decisions.

Another demo release for this promising Portuguese Electro-/Futurpop-project, freely available now via the rich catalogue of the Enough Records netlabel catalogue. This music project has recently released ist first official debut album "Vultures Among Us" on the small Greek label Hesperus Records. Let’s hope the best for this engaged project, that this won’t fall too much under the radar of the listeners especially in Middle-Europe. IN[PERFEKTION] are convincing with their clear arrangements and their well inserted male vocals and their dancefloor-oriented direction. For this demo, Walter could hire with IDK from the countrymen EDEN SYNTHETIC CORPS an approved additional musician to help out with production and guest vocals on the track "Toxikaotic". A remix well fitting with the discovered straight Futurepop-music provided by N3XU5 accomplishes this 5-track EP. I don’t see any serious flaws, that would stand against the success for this project. Technically and sound-wise IN[PERFEKTION] have reached the state-of-art, but we all know the rules of the business: Success nowadays belongs in the usage of the right promotion.

Surprise, surprise, a German act has found its way to the Russian promotion group Alter-X. MIND.AREA is a side-project of the German Dark Electro act HUMAN DECAY and awakes musically reminiscences to acts like the legendary ABSCESS. This presented 6 tracks offer a wide ranging diversity with various drum patterns and high-skilled synth play abilities. "Thenceforward" doesn’t rely on the often in a same manner mentioned PUPPYan factor, but shows rather ways to develop out of this chosen path of musically expression. No Hellectro of course, we are talking here of authentic Dark Electro. This EP is definitely one of the best – if not the best – releases of the X-Line label. That the protagonists of MIND.AREA have decided to give this quality Electro stuff for free to their listeners by using the Alter-X Promotion platform is remarkable – and speaks definitely for the quality work of the leaders behind, Mr. Nullklever (FORNAX) and Mr. Denoizer (T_ERROR 404). The skillful programming abilities of MIND.AREA for instance are awesome enough, to let them choose a label of their choice – if the protagonists would decide to watch out for it. A must-download item!
