Current is the new album by the Bucharest-based artist, the track titles of which make their theme more than apparent. Titles such as Volt, Phase and Ohm wear their hearts firmly on their sleeves: this is electronic music about electricity itself.
Da Bucarest un nuovo nome da aggiungere alla mappa dei musicisti techno che preferiscono operare nell'ombra: Syntax.
Current (a lovely title that can be seen as referring to both electricity and a sense of relevance) feels like an electropop record stripped to its bare essentials and then reassembled as art.
People like Syntax work very much along the early lines set out by Alva Noto, Jan Jelinek, Ryoji Ikeda or even Pole, but his approach is slightly more playful and lighter, most of the times, with some nasty bumps in ‘Dipole’ or ‘Vector.
