E.L.I. lands on MRT shores and pollutes them with all sort of filth. The label second last instalment takes us to Britain and it is one of the most aggressive so far. The distorted screams, the ultra darkness, the violent atmosphere it creates is tinted in black and white by the stroboscopic lights of underground clubs. A perfect mixture of relentless basslines and straightforward rhythmic patterns for the dancers with no cause, with no hope for tomorrow. Places made famous by death and disaster.
Mike Smith aka Crossover Network returns with his project E.L.I. on Soil Records with an EP of 4 tracks full of acid, and electro with EBM notes. These bombs in the form of songs will not let you shake their melodies leaving your neurons pushed to dance in an unconscious way, immersing you in an acid darkness from which you will not want to wake up.
Established during the UK’s lockdown, E.L.I. has been a means of escaping the monotony of a bleak situation. This new project of Mike Smith aka Crossover Network has been created for compositions only made with TR-707, TT-303, MS20, DX21 and a discordant voice. The result is a six-tracks EP between EBM, acid and dark electro : six crepuscular bangers for the body and the mind.
Late night escapades- Wandering endlessly through desolated city’s. Behind the dystopian area that favours the odd minds. We had to go under the ground. Nothing is left only an Abbatoir of Dreams. For Dark is the Suede That Mows Like a Harvest.
