Belgian electronic music veteran and producer Eric van Wonterghem (ex-KLINIK and active member of INSEKT & SONAR) strikes back with the 6th album of his successful solo-effort MONOLITH. A project having the rare privilege to appeal to a very diversified audience, ranging from the Ant-zen/Hands harsh ambient/industrial camp through Novamute with more intellectual electronic tribal dance experiments or yet Gigolo Records and the whole new DJ generation from the electro clash gang.
With â€śTalismanâ€ť, MONOLITH returns to its hypnotic tribal roots, the very same elements that first brought this project huge club success. New tracks like â€śTalismanâ€ť, â€śShadowâ€ť and â€śAl Ahali (club mix)â€ť maintain the standard of excellence and are all potential new dancefloor hits! Overall, this new album sounds more direct and more powerful / hi-energy oriented, which will please all fans of his meticulous cold and forceful arrangements constructed around repetitive loops, hypnotising electronic sequences and carrying mesmerising rhythmics take you into a multi-coloured journey through electro and industrial landscapes, each time incorporating new exotic elements, retro eighties tonalities and other judicious vocal samples. An uplifting tribal industrial techno experience to play at maximum volume!
The limited carton box edition ofthe album (666 copies only!) includes a bonus cd holding an impressive live recording during MONOLITHâ€™s recent american â€śPsycho-Dynamics Tourâ€ť: a frontal dancefloor assault capturing the hot hi-energy of MONOLITH'S live shows.
