[Electro] I am Sid – The Dancing Plague EP

Mmmmm, we love a good concept EP. Too bad I am Sid didn’t just settle for good, as his EP, The Dancing Plague, is a feat of electro few have managed to come close to. Inspired by some interesting events in history, most notably in the 1500’s where individuals went manic in a dancing fit and ended up dying. Gnarly stuff – but just the kind of crazy thing that inspires some incredible art.

In four tracks I am Sid captures the creepy, dark tone of the fatal events. Through gut-wrenching basslines and some powerful composition packed with raw melodies and haunting soundscapes, The Dancing Plague is one of the most powerful projects we’ve heard this year. It’s focused, dynamic and magnificently engaging – putting you right in the mix of the mania. The Dancing Plague is a must have. Period.
