6ct Humour - [`djuel] EP
Synthpop 6ct Humour are two lads from Saarbrücken. One being Rouven M. Bitz (vocals / lyrics) and the other being Ronny Gerisch (keys / programming / backing vocals) and the [`djuel] EP is the duo's, as far as I can tell, third release since 2009. I've not heard the previous releases so this EP is the introduction for me.

The [`djuel] EP is five tracks of synthpop essentially being the single "Dual", a remix of "Dual" and three other tracks. And to be honest the single is the standout track. The remix tries a few things but doesn't match the feel of the original. Lyrically, "Dual" is a nice little,sometimes clever, sometimes not song about humanity and all within it.

All the tracks are musically, okay. Classic synthpop. Classic sounds that as a fan of the original style, you will recognize. However, on the last three tracks, "Venture And Dream (WLS Mix)", "Wieder mal" and "I've Got To Go (Zum Stadele hinaus), the vocals sound strained and stretched over the limit of range. This takes away from what is decent synthpop music. And with "I've Got To Go (Zum Stadele hinaus)" being a lyrical rewrite and snythed up version of "Wooden Horse", the EP ends rather on the down side.

Considering the best track on the EP is the single "Dual", it might be wise to wait for the full length release from 6ct Humour.

I wish I could say more about this EP. But there is nothing remarkable about this release to warrant it.

I've been DJing for 30+ years and been lucky to have done Dj support for Assemblage 23, Grendel, Nachtmahr, Shiv-r, Psyche, Icon Of Coil, among others. As Digital Anodyne I've written and remixed, Retrogramme, Leaether Strip, Rational Youth, Psyche, Pluvio, Arkyus and so forth. I'm a music fan of electronic music with a thirst to hear new music as often as possible. Writing for Brutal Resonance for the last 5 years gives me the opportunity to share that passion. music//DJ\\remix
