Wool-E Tapes

EN

This is a tape from Matthias Yzebaert. He’ s in the first place a creative/graphic designer and DJ/producer. See also his website http://www.mayz.be/

But this young man has clearly more than one talent. His EP contains seven, sometimes very dark, underground synth tracks. When you hear these songs you relive the Belgian electro scene from the eighties, from Front 242, A Split Second to Siglo XX. It is the ideal soundtrack for a dark and desolate townscape.

What interests me is the way he experiments and records like the mentioned bands. This sounds is not overproduced, but it feels how it should be, as if it was created in a basement or an attic with some primitive Roland- keys and things like that. That is the force of this EP.

Deze tape is afkomstig van Matthias Yzebaert. Hij is in de eerste plaats een creative/graphic designer en DJ/ producer. Zie zijn website http://www.mayz.be/

Maar deze jongeman blijkt over meerdere talenten te beschikken. Zijn ep bevat zeven, bij momenten donkere, underground synthtracks. In de songs hoor je de Belgische electroscene uit de jaren 80 doorschemeren, van Front 242, A Split Second tot Siglo XX. Je kan zo een donkere en desolate stadssfeer oproepen met deze muziek als soundtrack op de achtergrond.

Wat mij boeit is de gelijksoortige manier van experiment en opname zoals bij eerder genoemde bands. Het klinkt niet overgeproduced of gestyleerd. Neen, dit klinkt zoals het moet klinken: als het ware opgenomen op één of andere zolderkamer of kelder met primitieve Roland-synths en dergelijke. Dat is de kracht van deze ep.
