Electrostatic makes very bass beat heavy techno/trance/house
music that combines floor stomping energy with melodic synthscapes.
While there are a few instrumentals here that are good, itís the majority
of tracks that feature the enchanting vocals of Kaoru that stand out
the most. Itís these songs that have an upbeat electro-pop sound that
blend occasional aggression with the addition of chugging guitar riffs
The electronic programming/sequencing/sampling is all delivered extremely
well making for some rather fun and energized dance music. While a lot
of the tracks feature a more mainstream friendly funk feel to them,
things get dark from time to time as well. While I do enjoy both styles,
I tend to like the darker moods a little more.
This band incorporates enough different genres into its music to allow
it to be appealing to all electronic music fans. This CD isnít just
for ravers. People who enjoy EBM and synth-pop would probably enjoy
it as well. Itís similar to the latest Delerium
offering, but a little more techno and less tribal.
My only complaint with this disc is that all of the songs tend to sound the
same. I feel that the band could fix this by incorporating Kaoruís singing
with the more heavy clubfloor fillers and have her sing a bit more energetic
The bottom line is that this is a very quality band that should have no
problem finding a record deal.
