Null + Void 'Cryosleep' (Hfn music)

Depending on when you popped up, the debut LP from electronic outlier Null + Void (aka Kurt Uenala) may either sound like the spirit of 80s electronic goth/pop with a dash of Detroit atmospherics, or a gently revived hour of electroclash dystopia featuring Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum and Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan. On ‘Into The Void’, Kurt’s music could actually be ‘Black Celebration’-era Depeche if they’d been produced by Four Tet, while Kurt’s actual Gahan collab, ‘Where I Wait’, soars as high as anything he made with Soulsavers. The lithe ‘Asphalt Kiss’ will get the nod of approval from fans of labels such as Turbo, and the epic ‘Come To Me’ could be an outtake from Blade Runner 2049. Ralph Moore
