Synthicide: Fiero – Pulse Seductor

Fiero - Pulse Seductor

Fiero—the Colombian born, Бишкек-based artist—returns to SYNTHICIDE for his second EP, “Pulse Seductor.” The release will take you back in time, right into the thick of Belgium’s intoxicating mid-to-late 1980s new beat scene. “Wild Desire,” a mighty dance track (akin to the likes of “Acid Rock”’s anthemic melody), delivers punchy snares and a juicy, persistent bassline. While using the iconic “cocaine” sample, Fiero turns up the intensity with “Inhale.” Its rhythm swings and thuds towards the acidic breakdown—this is a track for peak club moments.

The only real difference between Fiero’s productions and the new beat sounds of the 1980s is the use of powerful, hammering kicks that underline the ferocity of his tracks. And “Queen of the Nile” is just that. It utilizes the classic new beat formula with vocal oohs and memorable samples—“You’ll be my slave”—as the accents whip the listener into submission. Finally, “Catching a Bid!” harkens back to the excitement of the Boccaccio dance floor with its daunting kick and overlying metallic bassline. Darlos Zeill’s remix of “Queen of the Nile” reinterprets the track into an EBM-fueled melodic rampage with acid-tinged elements. “Pulse Seductor” fits easily alongside the most evocative of Morton Sherman Bellucci hits—slick and cool, it is a true homage to the vibrant and short-lived scene.
