Arnaud Rebotini – New Territory [Veyl]
Arnaud Rebotini is perhaps the most promising artist on the European electronic music scene. Most producers with a career and experience similar to Rebotini’s have become comfortable and have given in to the ease of new technologies. On the other hand, when we think of the Frenchman’s activity, of his work, we all think of his concerts, surrounded by a large number of synths, machines and, of course, his characteristic microphone. We must show him the utmost respect not only for his past, but also for the way he is facing this stage artistically and for what he represents for the whole guild.
Arnaud Rebotini arrives on Veyl with the new EP, ‘New Territory’. While venturing into a wide array of musical genres and sonic realms, the release is still unmistakably Rebotini, fueled by infectious electro-body grooves and hypnotizing vocals.
From the utterly addictive, pulse pounding allure of ‘Special A’ to the more industrial techno strains of ‘A Noise Rose’, Rebotini delivers a myriad of interconnected tracks which traverse fresh auditory landscapes but maintain a common circuitry. The poignant, anthemic lyrics of ‘No More Love (No More Hate)’ resonates loud and clear while the throbbing, Giallo flaire of ‘Italian Sex Drive’ sends shivers down the spine.
‘The Pale Eastern Christ’ injects a haunting atmospheric mood while the title track is irresistible ebm-wave that falls perfectly in between the lines for an indelible sound that only the French producer can conjure. Rebotini’s work continues to shatter boundaries and fuse genres while essentially pioneering a category all of his own. ‘New Territory’ furthers the legend and keeps us begging for more.
Release date: December 10th, 2021.
