Boomkat Product Review:
Killer EBM/darkwave collab between NYC/Chicago's 51717 and Svengalisghost for Ron Morelli's L.I.E.S. 'Trust In Pain' finds the duo side-stepping the dancefloor to a gloomier, more psychedelic headspace perhaps best consumed in dank basements and dingy bedsits. The combination of Lili Schulder aka 51717's breathy incantations and Marquis Cooper's slow-moving, sinuous sonic architectures hark back to classic SPK and Chris & Cosey as much as they remind us of recent exploits from HTRK or even Heinrich Mueller and co's Zwishenwelt project - a magic union of seductive groove and atmospheric sensuality that begs us to crawl back into its blackened womb. Highly recommended!
