"The song is asleep in the machine." These lines from a song by Einstürzende Neubauten could also be the subtitle of the album "Long-distance side trip" by mind.area - behind which HUMAN DECAY member maikko A. is hiding.
Modern urban myths, set to music in an electronic sound universe in which the machines create the sound for humans. In a fascinating new way electronic Club-rhythms are melting with atmospheric Trance-elements. Connecting to the deep vortex of the dark-ambient industrial with distorted, ominous vocals and machine sounds. Thus creating the soundtrack for the dirty, gray cities of the modern era, in which just a few gleams of hope still flash. The labyrinthine lyrics reinforce this concept again, they are nevertheless created by "Caseee", a mysterious mind.machine.
Where other acts just build snub-aggressive rhythms, mind.area set primarily on atmosphere and thus create a fascinating kaleidoscope of dark, electronic music, but absolutely danceable. Modern, unique and incredibly captivating. Still an insider tip! But not for long!
Fans of Skinny Puppy, Frontline Assembly, and intelligent, danceable atmospheric Electro-Industrial should give this one a try for sure!
