Dicepeople x Moi Saint - Shallow Under Skin
Dark Electro Both Dicepeople and Moi Saint have been building themselves up over the past few years dragging fans into their fold one after the other. Dicepeople's robotic and synthetic dark electro immersed with lively shows and visual aesthetic have been able to produce a couple of albums since their start in 2013, while Moi Saint's ethereal, atmospheric synth based music has led her to a fuller understanding of her own prowess. Both projects are now a part of Syndicol Music and, as such, have collaborated on an EP together titled Shallow Under Skin

The EP opens up with the title track of the EP 'Shallow Under Skin'. This addicting song captures the upbeat dark electro antics of Dicepeople mixed with the otherworldly ambiance that Moi Saint haunts in her own tunes. Moi Saint takes over the vocals entirely which is not something to complain about - if you've never heard her sing before you will fall for her on this EP. That being said, her solo produced music is also a treat so do not skip out on that. 

'Fallen Down' came up next and continues on the same path of mixing the sound of Moi Saint and Dicepeople together - this time around there's less of that atmospheric/ambient appeal and a harder focus on clean cut dark electro beats. Two remixes also find themselves attached to this release. Deflexity (Dennis Froloff of Obsidian FX) takes 'Fallen Down' and strips it into a dirty industrial mix that shows his technical skill. Analogue punk Microchip Junky provided a remix of 'Shallow Under Skin'. Going for a minimal sound, Microchip Junky certainly turned the song into his own with the original vocals provided by Moi Saint shining through. 

The most important aspects of an EP to myself are the originally produced songs - and both Dicepeople and Moi Saint nailed that bit. 'Shallow Under Skin' is a solid hit that will stay on my playlist as is 'Fallen Down'. The remixes attached are a nice little add-on but none too necessary, either, as the two original songs can stand on their own and then some. I am unsure whether or not Moi Saint and Dicepeople have plans to release a full length album together, but I would love to see that happen especially if Zmora joins the fray with her own set of unique chords. For now, this will have to do and I will continue to jam out to it. Keep an eye out for it on January 22nd.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
