Another brilliant review of Cobra Coral EP feat. Marc Almond, Boss Axis, Charles Poulet & Bird Radio, this time by the awarded music site Louder Than War.
“The resulting Quantum Mix is a cavalcade of sound which would surely send any club goer completely insane as the cacophony reaches near fever pitch. It’s an incredible sound, and one which manages to remain focussed without sounding like a complete mish mash of undecipherable noise. Apparently, the goal is to ‘continuously raise the internal frequencies of the listener’. Mission accomplished.”

Fantastic Cobra Coral EP review by Compulsion! (EP out on Amazon & Google and soon on iTunes and Beatport)
“Unfurling slowly this ‘Quantum Mix’ reaches the first of several climaxes: where the Amazonian voices sing the ‘Cobra Coral’ chorus, before sweeping cuts of strings and dreamy electronic sequences appear scooping up the massed choir voices as the beats get heightened and more rapid, and are joined once again by the evocative wafting flute before it all gets whipped up into a multi-layered mass of non-stop ecstatic exotic dancing. The entire thing appears to represent a transcendental journey, whose vibrations will resonate as much at home as it would do in a club. Othon and Charles Poulet have crafted a really stunning remix here. Don’t miss it!”

Article investigating why gay men love female pop stars and looking at excellent LGBT artists (like Othon!) that could perhaps substitute their need of empathizing merely with straight love songs. Ernesto Tomasini is also included in this article by Patrick Cash. Read full article here
