ENFANT TERRIBLE vs GIFGROND#70 – March 30
R A D K O is playing a blend of cold wave and shoegaze elements… their songs and the production have a typical nostalgic feeling but are rather modern at the same time…instead of being overtly dark the sound and overall mood is much more melancholy and dreamy… they did an impressive debut last year with addictive tracks which did raise curiosity for the future of things coming from this Italian duo…
This duo from France just did delivered a simply hard-hitting and smashing debut EP… the two musicians behind Leroy Se Meurt have a background in electronics and in punk music… and this is very evident in their sound… old school EBM is fused with fierce elektro… a true punk attitude and energy is always there… sort of in the tradition of Ich Bin… They stay away from the contemporary EBM sound with techno influences… Leroy Se Meurt choices their own stylistic path but with the same impact for the dance floor… or maybe even more impact…
Hailing from Sweden Celldöd is at the forefront of the contemporary EBM movement. Unlike most musicians nowadays he avoids playing juts techno… stays on more the EBM side of things with his loud beats blasting their way into you… These last 5 years he has been building a name for himself with great live shows and a steady stream of releases on labels such as Suction, DKA, Medical, Femur and Kess Kill…
Enfant Terrible dj’s:
