Fluxion – Traces [ECHOCORDCD011]

Second album by Fluxion on Echocord. The sounds, influences and aesthetic of his actual travels, expectation-journey-destination, alongside the music influences deriving from them. Through his prism those sounds, pictures, travels, emotions left traces of new directions, of future journeys to take. Fluxion captured the “Motion” in his travels with a different feeling each time. On “No man Is An Island” with the unreleased Dennis Brown vocal version, an influential song, with a clear message.”Desert nights” a kind of desert rock meeting dub on a road movie. “Stations”, a place between destinations always a felling of something promising, “Butiama” an actual place, where variations and consistency in rhythm is within people’s DNA, “Migration” a new start, a promising start.

S Crosbie – Dark Arts #01 [DA001]

‘Mid Blue’ is a soundtrack for the darkest corner of the warehouse. The square bass grabs you from the first bar and combines with cosmic sweeps to drag you down deep before the toms come in to add that all-important funk factor. ‘Broken Space’ is a beautifully playful track. The stuttering beat, organic percussion and melodic touches merge with the darkest of strings to create a sound rooted in classic electronica but belonging firmly in the present. ‘Restraint’ is a burst of heavyweight electroid futurism – rock-solid beats and alien sounds from god-knows which galaxy combine with a razor-sharp cymbal attack. Handle with care. ‘Red_Dust2’ is a huge, rolling tech-house rhythm, mixing the warmth of the motor city with the cold machine funk found this side of the pond.

Decoside – Reload Vol. 3 [ECLIPSELTD003]

Decoside delights us with a 12 “containing two tracks inspired by the legacy of the dub techno pioneers but focusing on the evolution of the genre! Reload 5 is a massive floorkiller based on tribal rhythms that moves on dub chords and ethereal pads, all powered by a fat kick drum! definitely groundbreaking! On the other hand we have Disorder much softer and atmospheric track with all the typical dub techno elements on the inside. The release is completed with an emotional version of Disorder remixed by Fluxion.
