Nórdika - Neurotransmisor
Synthpop A romantic Mexican synthpop artist who goes under the name of Nordika released an album earlier in the year and, if this just isn't clear to you as of yet, I shall be talking to you of them. And, so far, I am enjoying myself in this sooth sounding release with calming beats that can be danceable.

The lyrics aren't too touched upon, and come out clear and concise. There are a few digital effects added onto them, but it's not enough to mess with the singer's voice to make it gross. In fact, he sounds fairly nice to my ears, and makes me want to lay down and sleep with the man who's singing these lyrics.

And, the lyrics are in spanish, being sung in his native tongue. While I have no idea what's being said, I'm pretty sure most of the songs come out as love songs or something close to it. At least that's what I would hope to expect from such lovely music.

Also on this album are several other featured artists, but my favorite collaboration lies within Contradiccion, which features Luna Violeta. She lends her vocal talents into the album and sings along side Nordika, and it creates a very affectionate atmosphere.

As far as differing mixes go on the album, there's really only one which is that of El Mundo Que Creamos. There are two versions on the album, one featuring Moenia and the other being the original version. Both are pretty good songs, and serve well on the album.

Now, however, I will take a not here and now that while I am enjoying this album, I cannot give it too heavy of a praise from myself. I like it, but I don't love it. I suppose one of the major flaws I find in this album is the fact that the lead artist comes off with a fairly monotone voice that, while it sounds decent, just cannot match up with the beat of the song. I find this opinion to be very strong when I listen to Endorfina.

Nonetheless, I cannot give the album too harsh of a critique, either, for I am laying here in my bed and enjoying myself quite a bit. It's a good album, with a guy who knows what he's doing behind the music with a good amount of talent, but he just needs to make the extra effort to boost the power of his current standings.

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.
