Junksista - Promiscuous Tendencies
Electro, Futurepop Everyone's favorite German electropop duo Junksista is back with a brand new two disc release Promiscuous Tendencies. If you're as familiar with the project as we are then you will be well aware of the sex appeal, humor, and attitude Junksista presents with each album, EP, and single. Promiscuous Tendencies is no different in themes than their previous albums and dominates as a club riddled dance album. 

Boog and Diana have mastered each other in both life and in music as each and every single one beat Boog curates is matched down to a T with Diana's alluring vocals. That's not to say that his production does not go hand in hand with other musicians. For example, the first track on the album 'Monday' - which is a humorous song that Garfield would be proud to hear - features fellow Alfa-Matrix label mates Essence of Mind. The additional angst provided from the electrorock outfit is wonderful and balanced. 

Essence of Mind is not the only project that joined along for some fun. A perfect pairing of LayZee (of Mr. President fame) and Junksista was featured on the song 'Monster', Emke of Black Nail Cabaret lends her gorgeous vocal talent on the track 'Freak At Heart', and Noemi Aurora of Helalyn Flowers takes part in the perverted glory of 'Celebration Fornication'. 

That all being stated, even without the guests on their songs Junksista shines very well. Funky electro beats illuminate on 'Away With The Fairies' while 'Control' gives off a biting S&M feel that beats out any novel in the Fifty Shades series. Both 'Fuck For Love' and 'Silence' shows off Boog's and Diana's minimal electronic side barely letting a whisper go by unnoticed. Regardless what song I point out on the album it's damn well worth your time. 

As always with any of Alfa Matrix's major releases a second bonus disc is attached with plenty of remixes to boot. While not every remix is quite my cup of tea, you're going to find plenty of love on the disc from the likes of Psy'Aviah, Flesh Eating Foundation, Technolorgy, XMH, and many more. If I have a personal recommendation, it will be for Psy'Aviah's remix of 'Love Makes Stupid People' which, coincidentally, is also the song that starts it off. 

As stated above, if you're already familiar with Junkisista then you know what you're getting into - a fun ride of electropop, funk, and straight up sex appeal. For the newcomer, there has never been a better place to start, especially considering this is a follow up to 2014's stellar High Voltage Confessions. Get listening.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
