Boomkat Product Review:
Dirk Dresselhaus's Editions Mego debut is a post-dystopian electronic pop concept album that deals with reality and illusion, human and machine. Alright then!
Since the mid 1990s, Dresselhaus has been analyzing the relationship between pop and experimental electronic spaces, sometimes diving headfirst into one side or the other and sometimes finding a comfortable mid-point. "The 8 of Space" is his poppiest album for years, and uses familiar forms to reflect a "trans human sound world where biological and technical elements compliment each other".
So with modular synth, drum machines, guitars and vocals, Dresselhaus assembles slender songs that reflect his long, varied catalog and interests in heady sci-fi concepts. Using a robot voice he's named iBot, he gives a humorous lightness to proceedings, dipping in and out of electro-pop formula hinting at the past and the future simultaneously.
