Description

The label Kess Kill is rapidly becoming one of the most vital labels for new left of center minimal body music and industrial. Majestoluxe’s debut LP for KK fits nicely into that oeuvre: its eight tracks are simultaneously sparse, rhythmic and above all gritty. “Hedonic Treadmill” plays out like a skeletonized version of EBM, its central looping synthline and thudding percussion evolving through numerous configurations in service of a filthy good groove.
Elsewhere “A Distinction Without a Difference” summons up keening drones and hissy snares to create an old school industrial vibe abetted by alien vocal treatments. Instrumental “Geosmin” takes a similar tool-set but builds it around a rolling tempo and distant squeals that sound for all the world like a ghost train chugging across a blasted landscape. Hell, the excellent “The Great Great Rift Rift” approximates early dark electro, the loose assemblage of synth patterns and drifting reverbs summoning the Klinik to mind as producer/performer Conny Fornbäck archly intones “Continental drift will tear us apart again”. It’s solid stuff all the way through, as diverse and surprising as it is consistent.
