Two years after landing on the record stores’ shelves, François X‘s excellent debut album ‘Irregular Passion‘ gets the remix treatment, and what a treat.
Amongst the artists invited to add their distinctive spin to the French producer’s intricately deep and richly hued techno universe, трип’s Bjarki, former 50Weapons staple and Whities/DISK affiliate Bambounou, Bristol-based producer Pessimist, Northern Electronics co-founder Anthony Linell (alias Abdullah Rashim), IDO main operator Valentino Mora… to name but a few. Mouthwatering, innit.
Premiering over our channels today, Elise‘s opening reshape of the wistful ‘Blurry Youth‘ takes us on a trip down memory lane with its subtle cascades of liquid chimes, dubbed-out organic textures, raucous bass moves and adventurous drum-programming. Slowing down the pace of your heart whilst lulling your mind into a state of peaceful meditative stasis, this one’s a ravishingly soothing, dreamy gem.
‘Irregular Passion Reshaped’ is released via DEMENT3D XXX on 11 December 2019. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
