AMBASSADOR 21




















ILLEGAL TRADE
"Acid for the royal family"

Country:    Belarus
City:    Minsk
Artist:     Natasha & Alexey
Label:    Hands Productions
Format:    CD
Tracks:    9
Time:    45

HANDS presents the new side-project of AMBASSADOR21, lined up to pay homage to the unrestrained kind of industrial music that influenced Natasha and Alexey to start it all. The result is everything but retro though, a contemporary, yet extra hard approach at industrial hardcore crossbreed, nine tracks gripping you firmly with their rhythmic impact and a seamless stream of little elements of sound. Thus, over the nearly 50 minutes of the album’s duration, suspension is held high effortlessly, like witnessing a fast-motion time lapse caused by the speed of sound. What can be harder than AMBASSADOR21? ILLEGAL TRADE!

"X"

Country:     Belarus
City:     Minsk

Frankly it is too simple to describe the music of poor AMBASSADOR 21 only  labeled "Power Noise". And it would be appropriate to speak of other sub-genres and influences such as: Industrial, Hardcore, acidcore, Breakcore, Breakbeat, Electronic, Noise, etc. AMBASSADOR 21 is not at all a project of extreme minimal techno, but every song is full of changes of intensity, speed, distortion or sensitivity. This album is quite similar to "Mind the bollocks", but I read in one review that the public prefers this "X" to "Never mind". Everyone can judge after listening carefully. As always the duo of Belarus fills his music full of energy, distortion and protest. Against all Systems!
