Vate – Volt


From the very beginning of the record one finds that it is the same old good Vate we like so much. Turismo, the first tune of the LP is Tour de France of the modern era, when car rallies replaced bicycle ones. I have already written about the next piece, Orient Stress, and I can only repeat that it's the most energetic one composed by Vate. Highly recommendable mixture of industrial samples with electro mood. Mundo Libre is a little bit similar. Still nice beat and melodic keyboard. Hertz has a great, radiative mood. Info is too similar to the tunes from previous Aeronautica..., but for those who do not know this album it still may be catchy. Watt is a very mechanical tune with one keyboard melody being very much intruding and engaging. Amper is quite the oppposite, very ambiental and etheric. The eponymous tune is quite Autechre-like in its beat and composition, with only one a little bit annoying sample. Yo soy maquina is another obvious Kraftwerk-tribute in name, but more experimental in style. Summarizing, Vate created another extremely interesting concept album, dealing mainly with electicity. Something like Kraftwerk's Radioactivity on the jamendo scale of course. The cover is great so it's ten form me this time. I suppose it's Vate's Opus Magnum, as for now of course.
