Strange formation, unfileable and face lifted, Depotax fuses styles and imageries associated to different musical genres to better penetrate our bulbs. Destabilizing, stunning, bowlifying are the words that come to mind regarding the ubuesque performances of this hallucinated band, fetishists of the odd.

On stage, these jolly fellows expire an undeniable wind of freshness on our sclerotic musical landscape. With the help of his engineman cousin Omar Kabil - aka «the Spongy» - and his dancing nieces Petrushka & Manushka (part-time astronaut hair dressers), Depotax projects his shamanic spell-binding rituals, witty blend of hymns to the unspeakable, of collapsed choreographies and syncopated projections. Of their songs issued from a language on the verge of emergence emanate the intention which pushes the egos to salutary introspection. A too full of emptiness disappear from under our feet.

A little while back, 108 producers from went wild under the ramming of the Depotax ballet.. Thanks to these conquered internauts, the druid of the time-left-to-urgency was able to produce a first 6 tracks EP « Wide Open Empty » ... Ma’am ... you have blow-dry problems? Depotax & his hair undressers will review your capillary structure from top to bottom...

Depotax instantly wins some really "easy" points in my book by doing something no one has done before. His sound is equally strange and familiar, mixing sounds from seemingly unrelated genres of music and making it all come together in his own personal "cabaret macabre". On top of that, the excellent production makes the tracks interesting to listen to again and again, so be prepared to use the "repeat" button on your CD player. To partially quote an online forum discussion about Depotax - This it what Skinny Puppy doing Justing Timberlake would sound like.

The high points are no doubt "Elastik" and "We Down - Heaven Knows". Both are excellent pieces of work, and the worst thing I can say about them is that they are way too short considering their progressive nature. Especially "We Down" could easily have several more minutes added without getting boring. The other tracks are decent, but don't stand out as much, except from "Pose" which I actually wouldn't mind missing out on altogether. It sounds confusingly chaotic and is nowhere near the quality of the top tracks on the EP.

This release proves that Depotax has the ambition and production skills to make something amazing. While there is still the risk that this debut EP will remain the epitome of his musical career, I prefer looking forward to his next output with great anticipation, hoping for an entire album full of masterful productions similar to Elastik and We Down. I know it would have the potential to end up among my all time favourites.
