Electrix Industrial, Rhythmic Noise Project Two The one-man production army that is Project Two makes his debut with 'Electrix', a five track demo that is self-released. 'Electrix' begins with a 2 1/2 minute intro track that sets the mood for the coming instrumental storm that is Project Two. The 2nd track is called "Sacrifice", a crunchy and synthy ride. While its catchy and original sounding, I kind of feel like it needs some lyrics however, sometimes lyrics and / or vocalists ruin what otherwise is a perfectly awesome song. Sometimes simple is better and "Sacrifice" is good without the typical distorted vocals that is a staple in the Industrial scene. Moving on to track three, "The Watcher", which is my favorite on the disc. "The Watcher" has a lot of elements that span across a wide range of genres, including, DARE I SAY IT?! Dubstep and electro fidget with its wobbly synths? But don't get it twisted! This is NOT trap or dubstep!! This is new school industrial with a dark and hip edge. I feel like this track is arepresentation of how diverse our beloved scene has gotten and how good music will continue to evolve and incorporate sounds to stay fresh and never stagnate. At this point, I'd already recommend that you check out this album. Project Two has nowhere to go but up, and for his first demo, I'd say Project Two is looking forward to a successful ride into a dancefloor favorite. Track four, "Defining Justice", sort of reminds me of BlakOpz because I feel like they'd use the same soundclip "its not revenge, its justice.". "Defining Justice" is a slower track but nonetheless still a goodie. It is a tad repetitive but still holding true to the original, hard-hitting sound that is the theme of 'Electrix'. The final track, "Sunrise", starts off with a catchy, rolling synth that sucks you in with the potential to be a dancefloor filler. "Sunrise" would be a good start or end to DJ mix or set, and is a good way to end thedemo. It leaves the listener with the thought that there?s more to come and I certainly hope there is! The bottom-line is this; 'Electrix' is Project Two's first release and for it being a first release you would expect to hear the cheesiness that comes with most first time electronic producers, but with Project Two, not so much thecase. This demo shows that it wasn't thrown together and though it is not perfect, it is pretty damn good. I recommend keeping your eyes open for more from Project Two! The EP is now in post production and snippets of these songs will be posted on his website within two weeks, but in the meantime, check out his website to listen to and download his DJ mixes for free at www.project-two-music.com 450
