Red Industrie – Switch * review at Side-Line


Behind Red Industrie hides the most creative and talented electro musician from Mexico. I’m speaking about Helder Camberos who next to his Isis Signum project got more and more involved into Red Industrie . He’s sharing this project with his wife Hilda Moran who became like the leading vocalist of the project. That’s rather innovative if you know the work of H. Camberos who has often worked with guest vocalists. It doesn’t happen differently on „Switch“ on which Sara Noxx and Darrin Huss (Psyche) did some guest vocals. Hilda Moran and Helder Camberos himself however did most of the vocals themselves. After the „Ciencia Ficcion„-album, which was full of remixes and the great „Electro Body„-single, „Switch“ can be seen as the real debut album of Red Industrie. Helder Camberos doesn’t really surprise, remaining quite faithful to his minimal kind of techno-body music. The songs are little pearls created by the magic touch of this great musician. The music has been constructed with devastating analogue sounds while leaded through a danceable rhythmic. Sexy vocals add an extra sensual element to the composition. Guest vocalists Darrin Huss and Sara Noxx seem like feeling totally comfortable in this musical universe. „My Victory“ with D. Huss on vocals opens this album in a very efficient way. It sounds intriguing while vocals and music together come to a real symbiosis. It all sounds like Darrin’s way of singing fits more to Red Industrie than to his own project. „Domination“ coming up injects an extra 80’s touch to the composition. The analogue arsenal that has been used for this song isn’t simply an emulation of the legendary 80’s decade, but rather a refreshing way to compose electronics. „Flesh And Blood“ perfectly illustrates the minimal character of the album while the „Angstfabrikk Remix“ (made by Angstfabrikk) of „Industrial Dancing“ moves into body-technoid fields. The song „Artificial Part II“ contains sensual Spanish vocals by Hilda Moran. After this song comes one of the incontestable jewels from the album. „Going Around 2010“ really kicks ass! This song is a marvellous melting pot of EBM, technoid elements and electro pop on top. „Your Wish Is My command“ featuring Sara Noxx is a bit comparable to it, but only for the ‚pop‘ side of the song. It’s however another essential piece. The title song reveals some s/m lyrics, which only reinforce the sensuality of the music. The last 4 songs are remixes by bands like Darkmen, Dr. Benway, Strange Connection and Autodafeh. The remix of „Domination“ by Darkmen is a quite cool one while Dr. Benway did a cool job on „My Victory“ as well. There’s nothing to throw away on this album. Along with Isis Signum, Helder Camberos confirms to have another great project in his hands! This is an album I strongly recommend!
