  • Here's my review :)


    Boris Divider - The Source - Drivecom DCOM 13
    In the prolongation of the almighty "La Hora De Las Maquinas" opus in 2006 and the ambient "Ultralink" mini LP four years later, "The Source" sees Boris Divider (Drivecom, Semantica, Satamile) deliver his third album to date! If the sound of the spanish electro pioneer has significantly evolved since his beginnings on Psi49net back in 2001, it has now turned into deeper and conscious melodies thanks to the use of untouchable vintage (SCI,Oberheim, Waldorf ...) synthesizers. The Madrid located artist returns today at his best with a mature electronic concept release that goes beyond the simple output calibrated for the dancefloor. Representing a step in Boris musical career and the start of a new musical direction to explore virgin landscapes where the artist never went, "The Source" will probably be considered as one of the most influential albums of the last five years!


    Taking electro to its higher level with influences ranging from Anthony Rother's early works to Vangelis passing through John Carpenter, EBM register, sci-fi movies and books such like "Ghosts In The Shell" or "Assault On Precinct 13" just to name, "The Source" opens with the title track, a cinematic 6'34" introduction made of emotive and moody layers over a downtempo. You'll feel like Rick Deckard propelled in the dystopian Los Angeles showed in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" movie. ACE! "1983" coming next unleashes the Bass for some body movement while powerful beats and cybernetic grooves bring you back to the past. If you're familiar with Boris live acts, you'll surely recognize "Streetwalker", a secret weapon he often plays on stage since 2005. Quite obvious as the first notes drop, sublime "Cop Assault", that follows instantly, pays homage to the 80's movies such like "Terminator", "Invasion Los Angeles" or "Escape From New York". Combining retro electro flavor to vintage melodies, urban sounds and minimalistic pad sequences, this track is one of my favorites from this off the chain album (and they're numerous!). Destined for home listening pleasure, "Survivor Sector" offers a sublime mash up of analog modulations and oscillations reminding of the so special atmosphere displayed on A. Rother's LP "Art Is A Technology". Hitting hard on the dancefloor tip, instant classic "Citydrome" serves up another milestone of a gem in Divider's typical signature. Based upon a mid tempo with a strong kick, this much anticipating tune progressively evolves into a road trip through the galaxy thanks to crisp rhythm programming, dark basslines and Detroit synths. This is the sound of the future brought to present especially for you! With its organic synths answering themselves over dark cosmic tones, introspective beauty "Escape From District 7" sounds like a moody EBM affair to bring closer to x2Proton's (aka Laurent "Növö" Boudic) fantastic "Euclid's Elements" album published last year on GenComProdukts International. Absolutely fascinating and another winner here!


    Next is "The Simulation", a sophisticated and aesthetic machinery made of electronica layers, sparse vocoder voices and futuristic melody lines that borrow from both Kraftwerk and Vangelis repertories. Incredible! Finally, "I Was" with its female vocals, rough beats, despair layers and heading loops closes the album on deeper sequences bringing the listener back into dense sounds meander.


    Homogenous and perfectly orchestrated, "The Source" offers a complete immersion into Boris Divider's world, a wildest and vastest universe with a much anticipating vision that encompasses automated societies controlled by machines. The result is a huge and outstanding spacecraft to transport you in the so famous Off World Colony evoked by Philip K. Dick in his "Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?" book. Depicting monumental landscapes and advanced megalopolis which are the main subjects of the opus, the album escapes from the current electro standards and robot clichés. No doubt numerous producers and freaks including me will find here an inexhaustible source of inspiration! Vital!
