Sinner DC started the creative process for MEG/CDG by digging deep into the sound archives of the Museum of Ethnography of Geneva, collecting traditional music samples from various global locations. Then they transmuted the materials into fresh, melodic electronica. CD co-released by the Museum and Mental Groove Records.

Sinner DC have long been one of my favourite electronical groups - me and them go way back, way way back to the golden days of ‘Dog vs Babysitter’.
The Swiss music makers have here dug into the archives of the Museum of Ethnography in Geneva and using these sound sources have crafted a deliciously drifting LP of fractured electronica. There is one incredible highlight that towers over the rest of the LP. ‘MEM’ is built around an ethereal sample of what some of his here thought was Billie Holiday but we can’t be actually sure what the source is. It’s the type of track that when played in the office has stopped everyone from getting on with their work (not that it takes much to distract). Sinner DC simply repeat the sample ad nauseum adding a thumping kick and a few crackles and bob is indeed your uncle. What a piece of music - you simply have to hear.
Elsewhere there’s plenty to enjoy. ‘ASP’ is a delightful slice of electronica on the move recalling Kraftwerk at their most kinetic, there’s some faded neo-classical haunts on the brief closer ‘WAW’ and the opening one/two of ‘MES’ and ‘LOS’ showcase fluttering staccato samples and drifting atmospherics. Do not underestimate this group, they can be a force to be reckoned with and in ‘MEM’ they have one of this years must-listen tracks.
