[DD14066] Sidephex - Reinstated

After quite some years in the long grass, hardcore supertalent Wouter Vonk returns to the stage as Sidephex and releases nothing less than a full-length album. Dominated by the mighty 4/4 bass drum, „Reinstated“ starts as a dark techno voyage, encounters some EBM flavor and acid excursions along the way, before increasingly hardcore beats and industrial harshness creep in for a crushing finale. A high bid for the dance floors, but also a conceptually convincing album for the electronic lover.

After an unsettling “Intro”, Sidephex gives us a triplet of contemporary minimal dark techno, with “The Backyard”, “Mana” and “Secluded” all well-suited for the Berghain-style crowds. “Classico” is a great banger with a most appropriate title, sounding like the collaboration between Robert Armani and Johannes Heil that never happened in 1998 – never forget where the roots are!
“Bring it on” does so, the beats banging harder, making you imagine the crowds go wild, and “Natrium” follows with some sawtooth madness.
“Great San Francisco Acid Wave” is a collaboration track with Juno, and it sure gives you another 303 reasons to love this album. With “Froempel”, Sidephex brings in the distortion and industrial sounds that also dominate “Organism 0.030”, “Ultrasonic”, “Destroy” and “Chaos Returns”, bringing this album to its noisy conclusion.
“Reinstated” takes you from around 125 to over 150 bpm in the course of 70 minutes, and it won’t loosen its grip on you from the first squeak. If it was Sidephex’ proclaimed goal to be reinstated (!) as a major player on the scene, it’s been well accomplished.

[NOISJ-69] Desolation - Darkness Is Where I Shine

Earlier in 2014 NoisJ / Red Fever regular Desolation raised expectations high with a well-received EP on Traumatic, now it’s time for the debut full length album. And “Darkness Is Where I Shine” proves it’s about time for it! 14 tracks (+1 bonus track) exploring different musical directions, yet taking the listener on a distinct journey – into darkness.

The album starts with double doom, the opener “Obscurity Slavery” featuring not only crushing doomcore beats, but also doom vocals (as in metal, that is). Here Desolation clearly follows the take at the genre he has pursued on aforementioned EP, and surprises us with a beatless experimental tune even along the way (“Lost In Space”).
The title track is the first of more uptempo tracks with the dance floor firmly in focus, combining stiff beats with angelic choirs. Other tracks then choose a more reduced, immediate approach (“Double D”, “Let’s Kik!”). Then, Desolation attempts a combination of genres – successfully merging the doom sound with crossbreed structures. A fusion of fusion genres? But there’s no way you will find the amen breaks out place in “Delerium Tremens” or would dismiss the massive dark step of “Sick” or “Choice”, where every sample is just on spot! Towards the end of the album, we then enter the realm of distortion, with “Robot Make Noizy Music” being a fine industrial finale for an album to dream of… for those who are not afraid of the nightmarish ones!

[TumorCD83] Sphäre Sechs - Enceladus

A follow up to the highly acclaimed and quickly sold out Tiefschlaf CD (TumorCD56, 2012), this project of Phelios’ Martin Stürtzer and Christian Striztel finds the duo traveling even further out into space, beyond the reaches of light and into realms never before explored. While the overall approach is similar to Tiefschlaf and there’s certainly some shared DNA at play here, the seven tracks that comprise Enceladus feel weightier and darker…a glorious amalgam of drift and synth drone that seems to extend beyond any visual measure, the tones and textures floating off into an infinite expanse, pulled and stretched by an unseen gravitational force. Space inspired dark ambient can be a tricky thing…a common theme attempted by many with some measure of success, but few capture the coldness, stillness, and awe inspiring beauty of the interstellar void so brilliantly as Sphäre Sechs. Recorded solely on analog equipment without the use of computers, Enceladus is a deeply mesmerizing and hypnotic excursion best played on headphones or in solitude for maximum effect. 4 panel, matte finished digipak with metallic ink highlights.
