after such renowned and highly acclaimed records like “screenwalking (w /imminent)”, “so what”, the “remix item”, “rage”, “helix” and “synapscape” the latest album “positive pop” will surely convince the last critics. “positive pop” combines basically any style and sound synapscape has been standing for since ever – the different pop approach.
having gained tremendous experience through various side projects and thus having reached such a high status within the post-industrial scene, synapscape is giving the listener what the listener deserves and of course expects from the state-of-the-art visually as musically artists.
“positive pop” consists of 13 excellent structured tracks ranging from synapscape’s ambience over distorted vocalised tracks, always with a rhythmical touch and a scent of dancefloor. the multi-layered distortions have been put more in the background whereas melodies and rhythm have been given more attention in the foreground – an overall never heard symbiosis of hard, harsh, rhythmical tracks and droning, deranged ambience. not to speak of the incredible production – here, enormous emphasis has been put on and your speakers will be put to a hard test.
call it positive ... call it pop ... call it synapscape ... no more “file under” or if you still need a category, file under synapscape ... truly a milestone in modern electronic music.
