Millimetric Feat. Drey - Suffoque Review
Millimetric Feat. Drey - Suffoque E.P. (Including Equitant Remix) – BM089
It seems like there’s one fresh outing per week on underground Black Montanas e-label and who would complain? Continuing its exploration of Electro music under its most diverse forms ranging from Electronica to Techno passing through experimental, abstract or ambient, the San Antonio and Dallas located audio platform for worldwide Internet artists serves up a brand new two tracker digital pack introducing the debut E.P. of French activist Millimetric.
Following X, Darank, Fancyman, Raw Mechanics, Miss Duckin’ or Elite’s refine releases. Versatile Marseilles based François-Xavier Michel demonstrates that he’s not a newcomer on the Electro - IDM scene, having written since 2002 some strong vinyl hits on fame structures such as Goodlife, Properproud, Uwe, Sonic Groove or Things to Come just to name.
On the “Suffoque E.P”, The Hacker and David Carretta’s fellow partner presents a noir minimalistic dancefloor affair, breaking the boundaries between old school electronic and much anticipated audio fields. Injecting in his track his early influences imprinted from EBM and New beat registers (Front 242, Liaisons Dangereuses, Camouflage, D.A.F, Klinik), Millimetric delivers a gothic disillusioned piece, cold, dark yet groovy, sparsed with gloomy heading French vocals from the like of Drey (Amazone Audio, Advanced Synergy). Exactly the kind of sounds to find on his “Experiences Modernes” first CD album issued two months ago on M-Tronic label. Lethal!
Coming next is an awesome dehumanized rework of “Suffoque” by Black Montanas mastermind Equitant (Black Leather, Tarot, Devilock Records). Waiting for his “Dynamism E.P.” to be released very soon! The US heavyweight producer turns the original into a massive 80’s synthesized anthem, made of vintage drums, devil programming, atmospheric layers à la Moroder, some great bubbling effects in the background. Timeless, dark, inspired and electronic at the same time! Rush on this virtual box, you won’t regret it! Format: digital Mp3, electro
