Ukraina EBM, Electro Dupont Dupont started their career with the release of the four tracks MCD 'Behave' which became a given hit on the dance floor. The year after that they released 'Ukraina' which is their first album with 12 strong tracks. Dupont makes hard, monotonous oldschool EBM but they are still mellow in their brutality. All of the tracks work excellent on the dancefloor and there is a perfect weight in the performance. Johan Damm's howl gives it all a piece of brutality and strengthens the impression of power. With favourites like "Train for nothing", "More life", "Expo2k" and the absolute one "Another life" this just can't be anything else than a great album. The tracks are good placed and the album never loses the rhythm of feel uneven. I do miss "Behave" though. It was released as a MCD but perhaps they should have added it as a remix on the album. The cover is in its simplicity brilliant. On the front you get to see the boys in their morning hair, the record is white, the inlay is totally white too except the text "Dupont - Ukraina" in the right corner and the song list is just written straight up and down. Despite the simplicity it's not boring, rather the contrary, it is brilliant! I am already waiting for the next release from Dupont and I expect an album that makes you sweat just by listening to it. 550
