For having held this SILICON SCALLY‘s vinyl, I can say this cover created by DESIGN PRIMITIVE is awesome. I easily spent half an hour to watch all the items (Click on the pix for a bigger size). This graphic design with few color and no gradation representing alright the 00’s vectorial design made via the software ‘Illustrator’. Create an identity for Electronic music is not a easy thing, most of the time the picture is a simple & static photography or a caricatural icon slowing down a kind of personal escapism. Therefore the covers are often under the powerful level of abstraction of the music. Actually, the process of creation of this cover album entitled ‘Bioroid‘ seems pretty close to the concept of robotic music. Indeed, we can see these infinite loops repeated building an hybrid & cold framework.

The dark electrohead DVS NME has just self-released his 2nd album entitled “Metastasis” via Bandcamp website. This new project is clearly more introspective and therefore more sentimental than his last EP. DVS NME designs a kind of robotic spleen with great shades of grey. His productions keep a minimalist & purist vision of electro in the legacy of KRAFTWERK along with this cold & dark ambient reminding the JOHN CARPENTER’s touch. The “Metastasis” album contains 11 tracks with a constant relevance (a special mention for 2 mind blowing tracks : ‘Solitary’ & ‘Disappeared’). This mysterious project is actually the best DVS NME album. Recommended!
