Francois Ducarn aka Chroma Carbon is singer of the French cold wave band Factice Factory and co-singer of the synth project Sine Silex. Unidentified Man is on the other hand an analogue synth project, founded in 2013 somewhere in Belgium. With no musical skills and boosted by DIY ethics the Unidentified Man started experimenting with analogue instruments and a field recorder.
The music on Memento Mori is a blend of dark electro and electronic underground pop music from the late 70’s to the mid 80’s. The tracks don’t add anything new to the genres but show that the love and interest for EBM and electro with a dark attitude is still alive and potential. The black and cold content of the songs is high, thanks to Chroma Carbon’s creepy burial voice melted with the beats and retro synths of Unidentified Man.
The duo has experimental drift and brings the nostalgic electronic body music memories and the legendary periods of the starting new beat period back to the surface. We could mention all the big names that appeared in our head while listening to this album, but we have decided to keep them unidentified. Buckle up and play this retro limited vinyl. The vinyl edition includes a download code that contains the bonus track Acrylique, a previously unreleased Unidentified Man / Chroma Carbon demo track. The dark electro wavers won’t regret to have this release in their hands.
