About this item

Greek producer Fluxion returns to Danish imprint Echocord with the "Upsides & Sideways EP". The Athens-based artist has spent nearly two decades honing his craft both on stage through his live improvised performances and in the studio, producing records for the likes of Chain Reaction, Vibrant Music and Subwax Bcn. Copenhagen’s Echocord has consistently delivered high quality dub techno from the likes of Roberto Clementi, Brendon Moeller and Luke Hess since its inception in 2001 and now Fluxion returns with his twelfth outing on the label. "En route" opens proceedings, employing sharp percussive foundations, white noise atmospheres and haunting chord progressions which evolve throughout the track. "The Place" offers dubbed out synthesizer motifs and glitching arpeggios which are underpinned by echoing drums and a subtle bass melody. "Flick" then closes out the release with spacey synth riffs developing over groove-led percussion and a warm, distorted low-end. More dreamy and emotive than the rootsical, pitch black dread of fellow lumineries Chain Reaction, nodding more towards Jan Jelinek and Pole and their hazy melodic experiments. Recommended.
