These days, stones are thrown into the glasshouse of our hope for world-peace. Mad despots, incompetent populists and reckless dictators not only run politics in far-off countries, but stand right at our front doors. Is this the beginning of the end? Are we past the turning point at which what once was dystopic fantasy becomes reality? Schallfeld's new EP by the very name Dystopia sketches the image of this omnipresent feeling of despair. Shrill, tattered synth-notes poke out of the waves of deep, pulsing bass only to disappear again immediately, lost at sea. „Darkness Falls", „Fearful Symmetry" and „Modern Colony" are tracks which take the listener far off the shores of light-hearted ease into an alarming, almost accusing sound-scape. Remixes by Andree Wischnewski, Ryan Dupree and Dansir complete the air of dark foreboding and intensify the record's own menacing strength, relentlessly demanding the attention it deserves and no doubt will get.
