Rotten Beat Manifesto Industrial, Noise HIV+ How about some new fresh industrial/noise from France? How about some HIV+? Or Harsh Industrial Virus Positive as is stands for. 'Rotten Beat Manifesto' presents a wide spectra of the noise variations and forms. But also a dance-friendly beat for those who like the heavy dance floors. Pedro Peñas y Robles was born in Spain, but moved to France where he became on of the best club DJ's. He has also made live performances on a bunch of festivals and after a while he started creating his own music. In year 2000 HIV+ started to send his own demos to different labels and then Divine Comedy Records signed him. In the end of 2003 he changed label to polish Black Flames Records. That was a bit of history. From the first shivering tones you can feel the energy in the music and it won't take long before you catch yourself with stomping your feet to the music. First time I listened to this record I discovered the song "Illegal Tanz", "Feedback 1968" and "Taliban Law" which are great examples of great dance-friendly noise should sound. The great minus in the HIV+ is the latter part of the record which consists of a couple of bad remixes. But I still think this record deserves much attention, especially on the dance-floor.
