I'm all about the 'wow' factor. That might sound trite, but it's true.
I've never written a positive review about music that I don't like, don't find interesting, or don't think holds some potential.
I'm not attached to genres and actually seem to prefer music that skips around such tags.
I endeavour to discover music from many different scenes so, hopefully, you -my reader- will find something on here that you enjoy and might be tempted to buy.
Today's pick is The Mekano Set.
Okay, so you are all aware of my love for 1980s music. The Mekano Set blends elements of '80s electronica with a depressed bass line, echoing vocals and a carnal groove. I'm thinking bass from The Cure with Orange Juice vocals and New Order beats, but bring into that mix a trance-like early '90s Curve aura, and you have something really interesting going on. The undulating melodic motion of this music glides across the skin like velvet.
