Fluxion - Vibrant Forms

Recommended Posts

"In the opinion of experimental imprint Type, Vibrant Forms is a bona fide “milestone in the dub techno genre.” By way of tribute, the label is to give the album its first full reissue next month. No bonus goodies, but the re-release will mark Vibrant Forms‘ first foray on vinyl, and has been freshly remastered for the occasion."

I'm hoping there's gonna be a nice 3 CD set like there was for the Koner reissues. Will have to ask him about that.

Seems unlikely given that this and the Porter Ricks already had dedicated CD reissue editions already. :(

 

 

I saw that there was a CD reissue of Porter Ricks via Type (in a crummy jewel case), but according to Discogs, both Vibrant Forms haven't been reissued at all.

Sorry, poor wording on my part. I meant to say that this first reissue of Vibrant Forms on Type is, like the Porter Ricks, also being released as a single CD, presumably in a jewel case. Therefore its unlikely. Pity as I love those digifile cases too. :-) Edited by Jamesqdot

Oh, yeah you're probably right, which is a bummer. I really dislike jewel cases. The Koner set is super nice.

      Sweet news.

      "The kaleidoscopic kente-cloth cover is a red herring: There's nothing explicitly African about these slowly unspooling drones from Lichens' Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, aside from a hint of hand percussion. The way those leathery thwacks are caked in digital clipping and nervous delay suggests that messing with the way we decode overdetermined sounds is part of Lowe's project, however. The skulking, barely-there beat is shrouded in a resonant drone with Appalachian overtones, like a jaw harp twanging from mountaintop to mountaintop; a plunging dub bassline breaks the surface in a fizzy echo of Porter Ricks, and in the B-side version, a rippling arpeggio flashes back on Tangerine Dream's Sorcerer soundtrack. It's all suffused in opalescent digital static, like Pole with a fetish for low bit-rates, and despite the brightly covered sleeve, it's as bleak as anything you might find on the Blackest Ever Black label. You can listen to samples on Boomkat, but the tracks really need to be heard in their full, quarter-hour lengths to make sense."

      "Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net. Reportedly created by a "Head Technician" who has been "magnetically aligning ferrous particles since 1970," Type has adopted Pye Corner Audio’s initial recordings for a lavish 2xLP edition. Though once the fictitious back story dissolves into reality, there are still plenty of reasons to seek out "The Black Mill Tapes Volumes 1 & 2." Many styles inherent in deep electronic zones are on display here: from eerie ‘70s soundtrack vibes and disintegrating organ melodies to beat-propelled murk and approximations of early krautrock. A few moments even recall a monochromatic version of Broadcast’s collaboration with the Focus Group. The anonymous figure behind Pye Corner Audio is clearly inspired by and well-versed in the golden age of radiophonics, but "The Black Mill Tapes" views the material through a 21st century lens, updating and refining the specialized style."

      "Real name Konstantinos Soublis, Fluxion is a Greek dub techno artist whose career stretches back to the late '90s, when he put out his first 12-inches on one of techno's most respected underground labels: Chain Reaction, a follow-up to Moritz von Oswald and Mark Ernestus' legendary Basic Channel imprint. He went quiet for most of the last decade, though as he told RA in 2010, he never really stopped making music. After resurfacing in 2009 on Resopal Schallware, he connected with Echocord, a Danish label whose sound is heavily indebted to the Basic Channel family of labels where Fluxion had his start. Traces features 10 previously unreleased tracks by Fluxion, plus a new vocal mix of "No Man is an Island," a 1970 reggae classic by the late Dennis Brown."
