Crimea X-aspirating


THE three-track Chorne More EP by Italian dance act Crimea X, which takes its name from the Black Sea, is a black mark against their name for me.
Because despite a promising opening minute or so, Jurij is smothered with cheesy pianos seemingly salvaged from an early '90s house track, and a one-word vocal that could have stolen from the Stereo MCs.
And the disco house vibe continues onto the toned-down Vavara and the plodding Liubov.
As far as electronic music goes, this is the era of dubstep - yet Chorne More churns out something more Urban Cookie Collective than gritty urban reality.
