Label: Industrial Complexx Cat: IC008
Label: Industrial Complexx
Release date: 10/07/2020
Industrial Complexx releases its second album of various artists , which, as it did with the first volume, coincides with the release of its printed magazine. The platform was first born as a webzine but soon expanded its activity to the printed format and also, as a record label, holding on to an experimental, risky, dark and transgressive musical line.
Industrial complexx Vol.2 is an album that besides combining release with diverse authors, also combines styles that oscillate between industrial and other more usual terrains of advanced electronic music, such as IDM.
On the A side we find three tracks, by Tullia Benedicta, Magnum Opus and Bad Faith Actor, that exemplify how wide can be a field like the industrial one, with influences of darkwave, EBM or techno. But when we reach the fourth track, it is the Lo-Fi sound of Group that gives it a different, more subtle character, where the percussive elements are the ones that rule. And to conclude this first face, Ximo Noguera opts for an abstract style, with a space-time that seems to break continuously.
The B side opens with the IDM of Ivax soyaf, a Valencian producer with a long career who recovers the style and sound that most characterized him in his first stage as a producer. Go5 continues with a rather experimental industrial line lacking in rhythmic elements. Lex-Or opts for an industrial techno with a uniform rhythm and bass lines that appear, disappear and bend, with a completely alterable harmonic pattern. Santiago López closes the release with his sinugly metallic sound, with sharp drones created with his hybrid instruments.
