frankfurt’s arne stevens and alex lange of substanz-t return after a 2-year span to release one of hymen records’ most immediately accessible albums, electric opium. all the traits you know and love about substanz-t are in-tact: down tempo beats, industrial funk rhythms, and precision soundscape creation. yet electric opium, substanz-t’s 4th album, comes from a much shinier place than their 2001 release, tripped experiences. electric opium bursts forth with bright soul and a vibrant sound stewed in urban lounge dynamics - where you’re as likely to get an earful of tight hip-hop rhymes as you are a hallucination inducing melody. it would be easy to say that these changes stem from stevens and lange working with mc’s sisco and ronin (who appears on megashira and panacea releases), as well as the legendary f. m. einheit of german noise guitar experimentalists einstuerzende neubauten. but that’s not it at all; electric opium’s the next generation of electronic sound to emerge from the new urban experience. put simply, electric opium is proof that substanz-t is the future of urban electronic sound.
