Untitled Project of Maks_SF - Pathfinder
Electronics Untitled Project of Maks_SF is back again with a new EP titled "Pathfinder". It follows the suit of releases that Venator Music has been releasing. Electronic-rock music that all has a sort of cyberpunk feel to it. 

Though 'Landing' was the introductory song and actually came as quite a lovely space ambient track, it slowly transitioned into 'Sojourner', an instrumental electronic track. You get a sort of standard, synth based beat with random chimes and bass scattered about; I really didn't find anything too special about this. 

'Pathfinder' brought me into the electrorock territory. His voice, filtered through some kind of autotune, actually went over very nicely. Though I felt his voice may have sounded whiny every so often, he still did good. And the beat wasn't half bad, either. 

Another instrumental track, one which evokes a theme of space exploration and wonderment, came in next with 'Sagan Memorial Station'. However, again, I really didn't find it all too memorable. The Juli Amore remix of 'Pathfinder' was basically a club edit, but it added a new flair to the song. It was nice. 

The last track on the album is just an instrumental of 'Pathfinder'. It was nice, but sort of unnecessary. However, Maks_SF did good for himself. This album is well produced, but the instrumentals need revision; they need to be more catchy and the like. 

I understand that Venator Music is trying to cater to electrorock enthusiasts, but I do think that, after a while, some of their music may start losing their identities just because their releases sound a little too similar. Either that, or as if the same person is making all the albums released under the label. Either way, Maks_SF was able to crank out a decent enough EP, it just needs work.

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.
