NEW MUSIC: SILENX – KALEIDOSCOPE EP
Silenx is Joel Azevedo from Portugal who featured with a synthy original at the start of the month (see here). Now he has an EP coming out on Boombar Music – Kaleidoscope EP.
With a sound that is very much in the Georgio Moroder / JMJ camp, there is always a risk of sounding dated or pastiche. The original Kaleidoscope track walks a very fine line, not always successfully. A bit too retro. 80s Stallone is the first to remix. This gives quite a nice 70s / 80s mixed feel and injects a little urgency into the original. Lazercat’s remix has a lazy funky 80s feel. Lost Years’ remix ends the EP with a remix that adds tom toms but can’t really add energy. Overall, slightly disappointing.
