Illogism is the debut album of Belgian duo Kaibun, who are Laurent Delogne (who is also known as Le Moderniste) and Marie Hubart. Their objection is to create a project with an uninhibited approach at Industrial music, a musical hybridization influenced by several styles of electronic music such as Minimal and Dub Techno, Electro and Rhythm'n'Noise. Expect 16 intensely rhythmic tracks with a gritty tribal feel, all clocking in between 4 and 5 minutes, a guaranteed high-octane listening experience. "Kaibun" means "circle sentence" and is a Japanese equivalent of a palindrome, a sentence that reads the same from the beginning to the end or from the end to the beginning. Kaibun is a female/male-entity with a leitmotif of rejection and attraction, of positive/negative interlacement. They intend to travel at the border of bastard electronics, to deliver honest, punchy danceable tracks, efficient and straightforward. The album title "Illogism" is (a nonexistent word) deducted from French, owing to the idea that people like to categorize and label music by genre – Kaibun like to counteract that way of thinking and give people unclassifiable music: Incongruent, illogical. The joint creation was not easily conceived at first as the two band members come from different musical backgrounds: Marie draws inspiration from Techno, House and Electro, whereas Laurent feels at home in a sphere of noisy, minimal, cold and aggressive music. The wedding of all those styles - without opting for a rotten compromise – was a result of several months of hard work and quarrels. The album contains a number of well-bred musical hybrids, with an ongoing upbeat pace and that joyous little dirty sound always on top. Apart from that, varying percentages of sonic heritage may dominate: The opener "101 Reasons for Accepting the Binary Monster" marries distorted beats with an entrancing melody, epitomizing right away what Kaibun is all about, the beauty and the beast. Some tracks have rather self-explanatory names, such as the hypnotic "Brazen Loop" or the acidic Industrial hardcore track "Gotta Get Into Hard Clipping". Not less than four tracks reference drug abuse and addiction, and all of them are very much on the verge of Techno and Industrial, interlaced by the joint aspect of repetitive strictness. "Lollipop" is a bit of a novelty track, with obvious samples and a hyper rave speed, which is also present in "Who killed the Taketoomuch Man", there treated with atmospheric bleeps. And no, there's no beatless respite from the enormous dynamic that presses "Illogism" from start to end, so you may consider using this whenever you wish to be propelled: While working out, driving in the car or twitching on the dancefloor – or simply for accelerating thoughts while sitting in the comfort of your armchair. Wherever you may roam, you will appreciate the one-of-a-kind positivity of Kaibun!
