There are two acts to which I compare Katharsys:
* Justice, because Katharsys are also a duo of French electronic musicians, who load their music up with lots of compression, and have some pretty catchy basslines alongside really abrasive ambiance. That's where the comparison ends however, not only musically but image-wise; Katharsys are a model of modesty and friendliness (both members will gladly add fans on facebook), nothing like Justice's outrageous public image.
* Technical Itch, because Katharsys produce straight-up dark drum & bass. Dark-d&b fans always argue who takes which torch from whom, I think Katharsys evoke more of Technical Itch's plain-and-simple dark, morose d&b sound than any producer(s) out there today, at a time when Technical Itch releases maybe a couple songs every year.

But my comparison is a little disrespectful; Katharsys have a sound all to their own. I don't know another act that makes synths like Katharsys, there's no mistaking the various effects they layer over their songs, and their rhythms switch between four-on-the-floor hardcore techno and hiccuping drum & bass percussion; a nice change when most acts nowadays stick strictly with one or the other.

Katharsys are something very special; be sure to listen to "Night Terror" on the Toxic EP, "Zero Point"/"Cold Spot" on Habit Recordings (release 25), and "Squake"/ The Swarm remix on Impakt Records (digital release 6).
