Review: Affekt Unit, a new collaboration between Philoxenia Records founders Luigi Di Venere and Neu Verboten, has released a three-track EP titled "Discorgy." The EP celebrates their musical obsessions - Italo house, Frankfurt EBM-house, and trance - and features an electrifying crossover of these classic genres together with surprising new sounds. The first track, "Oct-Opus," boasts a serious electro component, fused with progressive trance, UK bass, techno, transcendental rave, and even a climactic outbreak of rave-era breaks. The title track, "Discorgy," draws from Euro dance and EBM, experimenting with a polyrhythmic bass line and bringing the kind of "stadium house" that The KLF were always aiming for. The closing track, "Dreams Of Wrestlers," is cosmic house at its sweetest and beefiest, spruced here and there with Italo stabs and pianos, drum machine fills, and some lovely subtle filtering. The EP is a must-have for fans of electronic music, as it showcases the wide range of musical influences of Affekt Unit.
