Crushed Soul: Family of Waves

Electro innovator and longtime Ostgut Ton/Panorama Bar regular Steffi revisits an obscure alias for her first release on Dark Entries, fitting in with the label’s ethos and exploring her dark new wave and EBM-influenced side. “Gravitational Field” has a sprightly metallic bounce with shades of ominous clouds overhead, and “Scalar Property” is more of an injection of cruising Detroit electro-funk. “Family of Waves” is where things get grittier, with a rigid minimal-synth beat kicking the track off, then gets elevated with creeping, bubbling synths, keeping paranoid thoughts in the back of its mind but losing itself in club energy. “Diffusion of Heat” has more of a steady house beat, and similarly keeps a balance of effervescence and sinister feelings.
