This review is from: Artificial Perfect (Audio CD)
Ade Fenton has cut his teeth on the home and international club circuit and has a reputation for his amazing live sets that display his skill with the darker side of electronica, fused with industrial rock and pounding techno. All these elements, and some great song writing, are gathered here in his long playing debut.
His capability in the studio was proven when he produced Gary Numan's 2006 album, Jagged, and with Artificial Perfect he proves that he is no mean songwriter either. The material owes more than a passing nod to Nine Inch Nails and Numan's later work, but also has echoes of the darker elements of techno as delivered by the likes of Dave Clarke et al.
Vocals are supplied by Gary Numan, the ethereal Helen Tilley and Fenton himself. The music is best described as dark - thundering beats, thudding rhythms, grinding guitar and big big synths.
It's a good album and showcases a bright talent in the world of British industrial/techno.
