Fresh Windy City EBM moves from Street Walker aka Beau Wanzer (L.I.E.S, Mutant Beat Dance, Russian Torrent Versions etc.) and Elon Katz (White Car). Continuing the industrial and Electronic Body Music legacy laid down in Chicago by Wax Trax!, ‘Street Walker’ sounds like it could have appeared on the label back in the late 80’s/ early 90’s, think TGT (Chris & Cosey with Lustmord) ‘Revo’ style gear, throbbing and chugging with layered pitched down vocals. The bassline is akin to wonky acid house so there’s that logical cross pollination of Belgian EBM and Chicago acid/ jack. ‘Ooze’ is an appropriate title as the slimey wobbling acid resonance gets tweaked and the vocals sound like they’re some kind of evil subliminal messages. This is the sort of music you’re parents wouldn’t have wanted you to be listening to in 1989, associating it with some kind of depraved drug orgies. I’m guessing this is the kinda vibe that went down at Chicago’s infamous Medusa night spot. Dirty, sleazy electronic music..
Underneath Juan Mendez aka Silent Servant turns in a remix with a very sympathetic ear for the source material. He’s been on a bit of an EBM tip lately and this displays further his love for the sound. It’s instantly recognizable as a remix as opposed to just a Silent Servant track with a token vocal sample here and there. His mix is less freaky and quirky than the original, opting to take it deeper into a darker techno tunnel with eerie strings but retaining its chugging EBM structure.
