Nega Blast X is a trance techno industrial music project formed in 2010 by music producer Dominic R. Daniels. He is many things, but he is no copycat.
Daniels is still a skilled arranger of synthesized sounds who usually dabbles in trance, techno and industrial soundscapes. But pop culture’s obsession with the 1980s seemed to have reached something of a fever pitch in 2017.

Nega Blast X‘s love for the genre and period is relatively irony-free. It’s not a coy, satirical wink at a bygone era; his commitment to the aural aesthetic shows a genuine appreciation for a much-maligned genre. No doubt this attitude will establish him as a ‘80s revivalist of the highest order.

Nega Blast X and Duumix inject plenty of hooks and sonic layers on “She’s a Devil with an Angel’s Face”, that will remind you of your favorite artists and songs of the eighties, but it never seems overstuffed.

These songs may be purely synth generated, but “She’s a Devil with an Angel’s Face” is an honest, oddly humanistic release from an artist with a glorious keyboard arsenal who knows how to use it. Happily stuck in the 80s, Daniels revels in its grooving glory, often producing funky basslines, synth leads and thick virtual strings or pad sections and other sounds invented during the last forty years.

On this EP the Burbank music arranger and author, Dominic R Daniels, has demonstrated growth that only a musician with at least a decade of experience can accomplish. He has proven on all of his other album releases that he’s capable at pulling together the most far-ranging otherworldly rhythms and sounds possible.

“We Want to Rock”, the new album by Nega Blast X is supremely, relentlessly, even ruthlessly melodic, and laden with irresistible momentum throughout. It grooves determinedly and hangs together as an album too…

Nega Blast X describes itself as “a trance techno industrial music project formed in 2010 by Burbank music arranger and author Dominic R Daniels. Music is inspired by Daft Punk, Orbital, The Mutaytor and Eisenfunk. Sound is similar to New Order.”
The influence of New Order is apparent right off the bat in the first track of their latest album “We Want to Rock.” The opening song though, is simply titled “Want to Rock.” It very authentically captures the kind of darker, 80s electronic sound (unlike the cheesy 80s teen movie music.) The synths in “Want to Rock” bring to mind bleak, yet energetic cyberpunk action sequences or club scenes in films like Blade Runner or the original Terminator.
Other songs like Centipede (perhaps named after the classic arcade game?) seem to have a heavier, less bouncy vibe. Some have a very full and almost industrial sound. Interestingly, the band Orgy covered New Order’s song “Blue Monday,” and at times…Nega Blast X’s sound seems like a cross between the two bands.
There is quite a bit of variety in the music though. Just when I though I had “Nega Blast X” pinned down, the 6th track “For Angels That Weep” comes along and displays some added versatility. It’s very ambient and slower paced than other tracks. In there are cathedrals or other religious institutions in the future, “For Angels That Weep” is what I would imagine futuristic church music to sound like. It is very well positioned at this part of the album, to act as a kind of intermission.
The song “Technotronic” (presumably no relation to the late 80′s / early 90′s group with the hit songs “Pump Up the Jam” and “Get Up!”…or is there?) is another kind of lite-heavy-duty industrial dance jam.)
My favorite song on the album though is the final track, “Black Journey” which almost seems like it was tailor made for an 80s sci-fi/horror film soundtrack, or even as an intro to some “Tales From the Darkside” type show. It is complex, elaborate, dark and just an extremely well composed piece of music. I kind of wish it was earlier in the album because most people typically don’t listen to an entire album, so they’ll probably miss out on it. However, those that do stick around for the last track will be rewarded.
All in all, I feel like “We Want to Rock” is a solid and coherent album that knows what it wants to be and accomplishes what it sets out to do.

There’s really no words to describe the sound of Nega Blast X. The Burbank music arranger, author and digital artist, Dominic R Daniels, sole proprietor of the Nega Blast X project, is in a realm of his own and hardly many can touch that artsy creativity he has under the hood. Based in the trance, techno and industrial idioms since 2010, Daniels is inspired by Daft Punk, Orbital, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and The Mutaytor.

“Dark Matter” is the fourth album from Nega Blast X (a trance, techno and industrial music project formed in 2010 by Burbank Music Arranger, Author and Digital Artist Dominic R.) The album gets right down to business with the opening title track, which is high octane dance music, with an edge.
The Blessed, The Damned and The Dead has made #59 on the Top 100 Amazon Best Seller List!
