Melnyk with Sara Berg, Silence
LP, Gay Monkey

Melnyk is a Canadian from Alberta who came to live in London, England, where he makes clubworthy electro. Gaymonkey is a Swedish label formed to save that country from sugar pop and metal death and, although I'm personally fairly naive about that sort of thing, appears to be, well, gay. That should cut the homophobes out but what about those of us who don't care what people do in their own houses?

I guess the caracature of gay music is big disco and a certain sort of smoothly produced electro. This falls in the latter group. There are some nice songs that are nicely and smoothly arranged and Sara Berg provides some vocal interest. (Thunderfinger)
