Slash Dot Dash Podcast 035: Fluxion
Fluxion (Kostas Soublis) is a Greek producer that has been active for more than 10 years, with 6 full length albums and 12 EP / LP releases on Chain Reaction, Vibrant Music, Resopal and Echocord. His releases have been remixed by Deadbeat, Thomas Fehlmann, Rod Modell, Morphosis and Convextion amongst others. Fluxion's music includes different genres of electronic music, ambient, dub, experimental, techno, with sound design. His music has a characteristic of slowly evolving parts and contemplating elements which form lengthy musical pieces. His sounds are heavily processed to a point where the origin of a sound has little to do with the end result.
Epic in scope with a bit of the clicks & cuts approach synonymous with artists such as Vladislav Delay, much of Fluxion's best Chain Reaction work was compiled on teo Vibrant Forms albums. He went silent for a few years but resurfaced with a somewhat bolder approach on the 2009-2013 releases through Resopal and Echocord. At the end of 2013 Type reissued Fluxion's "Vibrant Forms" with 10 tracls that had been released in 1999 on the legendary Berlin imprint Chain Reaction and 2014 he made his brilliant comeback with releasing a new album (CD + 2LP) called "Broadwalk Tales" on Echocord, featuring the Jamaican vocalist Teddy Selassie.
