‘Click Interview’ with Root4: ‘When You Release Two Or Three Singles, The Album Has A Bigger Chance To Be Heard’
Root4 is not exactly the most famous and renowned underground electro band. Set up in 1990 the German formation went through several line-up changes releasing new work at irregular basis. Their newest opus “Walk My Way” already got very positive response and I can only confirm it’s a great and powerful piece of electro-pop music. The songs are well-crafted and elaborated while the global production sounds ultra-professional. I had a chat with founding member and creative spirit of the band Hauke Hein. (by Inferno sound Diaries) Q: I noticed ROOT4 was set up in the late 90s. How did you came in touch with electronic music and what kind of band did you had in mind? Hauke: In 1990 I found ROOT4 with a good friend. We both loved electronic music like Depeche Mode and Front 242. Gunter played piano in the studio and I was the singer. After many years, the cast changed and new members joined in. We started with synth-pop, changed in 2008 to future-pop and our new album is said to be dark electro. Q: The band went through several line-up changes, which might explain ROOT4 releases new material at irregular basis. How do you look […]
Four years after “The Productive Citizen”, IMPLANT is back with their new full length release “Oxynoxe-X”. This album is the output of a tedious “write-delete-rewrite” process. The band set the bar very high and we hear it! Although these new tracks got stripped to the bone, they still feature an impressive richness of sound layers and musicality. And we indeed still recognize the IMPLANT characteristic ingredients which are all in there: danceable beats, parasitic sounds, melodies which settle in your ears like worms and the harsh vocals of Len Lemeire who once again spits his bile on our modern high-tech society in his quest for some balance and oxygen herein. “Oxynoxe-X” is not only IMPLANT’s 10th album, but it’s also a wink to one of the pioneers of electronica dance.
The album also comes out as a limited edition with a bonus disc full of exclusive new material that can be considered as an integral part of a double-CD release. These bonus tracks were mostly inspired by modular synthesizers – which are very new in IMPLANT’s studio arsenal – and their unique and almost abstract way of creating. If the machines were still “on the leash” on the main album songs, they here got the freedom taking the lead… And the result is a strong highly visual dark sonic trip making allusions to pioneers of experimental electronics. Ideal listening position to this bonus disc is definitely horizontal.
After the momentous return of Circle of Dust with 2016’s Machines of Our Disgrace, Klayton now proves that the resurrection of his first major musical outing was no one-shot event; with the band’s yet to be titled sixth full-length studio album currently in the works, Circle of Dust will be closing out 2017 with the […]
Smiths frontman Morrissey has gone full force in an interview with the German news magazine Der Spiegel defending Europe’s cultural roots. In the interview he says: “I want Germany to be German. I want France to be French. If you try to make everything multicultural, you will not have any culture in the end.” And he continues: “All European countries have fought for their identity for many, many years. And now they just throw it away. I think that’s sad.” When asked if he sees the German Chancellor Merkel as the “mother” of Europe, due to her enduring years as the leader of the country and her power within the EU, Morrissey replies: “She stays silent, which is very interesting. But I’m sad that Berlin has become the rape capital… because of the open borders.” Morrissey went on to praise the UK Brexit (although he did not say if he endorses it): “The outcome of the Brexit referendum fascinates me because it was a victory for democracy. The people said yes. Whether or not to endorse Brexit is another matter, but I was very proud of the British.” Let’s see what the Morrissey fans make of this. In the interview […]
