Equitant & Yasmin Gate - That's All review @ Sideline Magazine

Ray Dillard Heflin aka Equitant is without any shadow of a doubt one of the greatest revelation of the past year (2009). His digital maxi’s “Mekanik” and “Dynamism” left me breathless. He ended the year with another astonishing piece entitled “That’s All” with Yasmin Gate (a wellknown guest singer on different Black Montanas projects). Equitant stands for the ultimate merge of typical old-school EBM and contemporary technoid elements. This symbiosis directly leads us to some famous projects like Terence Fixmer, Adam-X, Horrorist, Millimetric etc. “That’s All” sounds quite Terence Fixmer-like, but I dare to say that T. Fixmer sounds like a poor schoolboy in comparison with Equitant! The “Deep Inside Mix” is a devastating piece of music featuring a great, dry EBM bassline, an ultra danceable rhythmic and the sexy repetitve vocals of Yasmin Gate. This song is a brilliant composition. The ‘original’ edit of the song is quite comparable although a little bit less powerful. Equitant stands for high-tech and modern EBM and I really hope this project will soon get a wider (and deserved) recognition! Absolutely fabulous!
