  • Techno

  • Electro 
  • Crossover 
  • Alternative dance 
  • Industrial techno 
  • Hard electro 
  • Deep techno

Comment: honestly it is hard to decide what kind of music is predominant on this 5-track issue clocking in at a 33-minute. At times it is about sleek electro, at times about suave deep techno, at times just about fast-paced electro and techno mingled progenies (for instance, at Dos). A characteristic being common to all this bunch is a lurking milieu hovering and flowing atop the rhythms. At times it used to be not lurking anymore, having metamorphosed into clear industrial-tinged noises, echoes and hisses, and crackles. At Tres the artist makes up a sonic mayhem of hard, obsessive electro beats, smashed crackles, lurid noises which used to gravitate towards the black hole eventually. It is followed by a remix of the track by Czech Spigl, which is more relaxed and laid-back though providing similarly the obsessive outlook though doing it in other key. However, as we know the mixed things are at best frequently conveying aspects coming unexpectedly and emphasizing some weaker aspects in compositions. In a word, it is one of the most bewildering rhythmic issues in 2016 being released through Cicuta Records.

Enkephalin - Scntst (2016)

  • Folktronica 
  • Dubstep 
  • Post-dubstep 
  • Electronic music 
  • Remixes 
  • Electro
  • Experimental electronica

Comment: the opening track The Darwinist chimes as a whimsical blend of folk-based guitars and acid-drenched synthesizers and tectonic rhythms yet the piece does not set the pace for the rest of this 9-track issue. Later on, the guitars are abandoned or at least withdrawn to a lesser trajectory and massive dubstep frequencies and exquisite post-dubstep cadences being imbued with some electro flickers are about to going to predominate the first row within it. However, Galileo is another track where the guitars are to come back and zap a composition. The Belgian artist has a proficient touch to wrench these beats and frequencies in the way of finding the ending point in the listener’s brain and heart and coccyx. That is most important. The issue is ended up by a set of three remixes by the likes of c0ma, Andrew Course, and Max Greening aka Flatland Sound Studio. I like a remix of Tesla`s Dream created by Flatland Sound Studio, which used to sample hilariously enthusiastic words with the operatic kind of singing. In formal, it is not mentioned as a studio album but rather as a case of EP plus remixes. However, the result is grand in its rhythmical alchemy and moody meandering. The issue is a part of the discography of the Argentinian Abstrakt Reflections.
