Elekatota-The Other Side of the Tracks
The brilliant new album from New York producer, Frank Mokros (Synth-etik / Hands Productions) featuring 13 stunning tracks of complex rhythmic Industrial. With previous remix collaborations flanking the likes of Terrorfakt, Imminent, Radial, and Klangstabil, 2 successful releases for Frozen Empire Media, and a radiant new track on the recent Tympanik Audio compilation 'Emerging Organisms', Totakeke is back with his 2nd full-length album that proves to be his finest work yet. From start to finish, 'eLekatota' manages to effortlessly merge several genres of electronic music into one seamless body of work, without distorting the mood or veracity of the album as a whole. Each track feels alive, constantly morphing and shifting into new directions without the slightest loss of cohesiveness. A masterful collage of addictive rhythms, richly-layered beats, intriguing samples, and cavernous atmospherics, that all seem to somehow replenish themselves with each listen. 'eLekatota: The Other Side of the Tracks' is timeless opus that is sure to be hailed as one of the finest Industrial productions in years.

An excellent listening choice for those occasions in which one finds time to not do anything else but sit down, relax, appreciate a very good record and forget about life's worries.' - Connexion Bizarre.
