Blakstarr & The New Black - Wille Zur Macht
Experimental, Electro Daniel Orlandi, aka Blakstarr & The New Black, drops his debut album Wille Zur Macht, with D.Liver contributing her pen and vocal cords to this mixed-bag experimental effort.

On Wille Zur Macht, Orlandi creates dark and very much rhythm-driven compositions, employing a unique sound design logic that is at times quite shambolic and tangential. With no two tracks sounding the same, variety really is the spice of life on this album, and Orlandi manages to keep things interesting throughout.

After a few fairly docile tracks to kick off Wille Zur Macht, the equilibrium is breached as the harsh powerhouse The Speech blasts away the subdued mood. Headache Night Hunt features elements of rhythmic noise, namely staccato metallic clanging complemented by detuned bass and eruptions of grating blasts of static. An analogous approach is employed on Greetings From The Starship and We Are The New Black, the former beaming with a melancholic ambient energy and the latter infused with heavy guitar loops and guttural bass effects. At the end of the record awaits a pleasant surprise, that being a rejigged version of the Knight Rider theme that features a slamming backbeat and crisp electro elements.

This is a record for those electroheads who like their music unconventoinal and daring, with the occasional guitar crunch and plenty of rhythmic electro mayhem.
