Mélanie De Biasio - Blackened Cities

Blackened Cities is a the latest stunning release from Belgium singer Mélanie De Biasio, whose 2014 splendid LP, No Deal, is still resonating loudly in my mind.

It's hard not to get carried away by this 24-minutes-long recording, almost built as a seamless minimal-techno DJ Set. Driven by a remarkable rhythmic frame (notably the astonishing drumming of Dre Pallemaerts), Mélanie's captivating velvety voice designs a feeling of darkness and mystery. An almost perfect sound echo of the industrial landscapes she refers to as a source of influence for this record.
