Minimal Distraction EP
Basic Unit Productions
Street: 11.01.13
Divider = Front 242 + Die Form
Divider’s new EP, Minimal Distraction, sidestepped the mainstream approach to EBM and pulled from the traditional era of the mid-’80s early-’90s electronic sound. The dark, surrounding electronic beat enhanced by the vocals creates an atmosphere of aggression and anxiety. Divider is able to capture a traditional sound and enhance it with modern-day elements, which make this EP an intriguing prologue to an album that will be released sometime in 2014. This EP is a welcome approach to a scattered genre by bringing it back to its roots. Fans of EBM and old school electronica should keep their eyes open in 2014 for Divider’s full-length album. –Seeth McGavien
