In May 2020 K. Soublis released his 10th album under the Fluxion project, titled Perspectives. It has received high praise by the audience and music media, while Mixmag named it album of the month.
It was a personal work in which the artist allowed himself the space to explore real life events, through music, as opposed to working under a concept, or general idea.
It seems that the album resonated with a lot of people, making it a significant way forward for Fluxion, allowing the artist the creative space to evolve.
Fluxion returns with Perspectives - Versions to offer 2 new versions, from the album. With "Down the Line (Reprise)", he is shifting the music towards a more dance oriented direction, but keeping the mysterious atmosphere of the original, while on "Glimpses II (Rework)", the artist offers a new instrumental version of the original, adding new paths to the original composition.
Brendon Moeller is an artist that needs no introduction. The South African born living in the US, like few of his generation constantly challenges himself with new concepts and ideas, has incorporated techno, dub, jazz, ambient, sound design, to his works throughout the years. Never chased the limelight, but instead the work, one idea after the next, one project after the other, restless. He has collaborated with labels like Echocord, Third Ear, Electric Deluxe, Prologue, Mord to name some. "Materialize" is his first work for Vibrant Music.
From his early days in various bands in the 80's and 90's, Brendon liked indie, shoegaze, ambient, moody, cinematic scapes.
With Materialize he came full circle, reaching out to his early influences, but with the knowledge and experience of many years of exploration of modular synths, to create a concept space that feels intimate, and at the same time vivid evoking visual imaging.
It explores the time space through a minimalist, stoic approach.
It tells the story of how we are all linked into this tree of music we call electronic music, wherever each one is coming from.
A celebration of life through the mind of one of today's scholars of electronic music.
A liberation from the strictness of tempo and metronomes, to reach to a more creative state.
“All around is invisible. Plan to be outside for some time…”
A diary of sonic cartography by long time friends, and neighbors K. Soublis aka Fluxion, and Savvas Ysatis.
Stemming from prior mutual respect, and interest for each other’s work, it was not long after their first meeting at the turn of the millennium (when Ysatis was recording for Tresor, and Soublis for Chain Reaction) that a desire for a future collaboration was born.
…and a great many years later. Enter “Soluce”.
A newly formed alias, and the vehicle under which to present the odyssey that is “Birth” (LP).
An album conjuring images of alternate regions, exploratory from start to finish.
Fluxion & Deepchord present:Transformations, appears on Fluxion's Vibrant Music label. Accumulate is the first EP in a series of releases from the project duo. Electronic Techno music that shift shapes and maneuvers in uncharted sonic territories, by two known figures in the electronic music scene.
Fluxion is an artist with a long standing contribution to the electronic music scene. "Perspectives" is the artist's 9th full length album under this moniker.
His collaborations over the years with top boutique labels, such as Chain Reaction and Echocord records, and his total volume of albums and eps, place him at the forefront of the electronic music scene, for more than 20 years.From avant guard electronic dance music to techno with ambient textures, Fluxion has managed to stay at the forefront producing music that helped shape up a whole scene.
"Perspectives" is a more personal album expressing the artist’s state of mind at a specific point in time where the need for change was a necessity..
There are moments in every artistic path, where instead of following a concept, an instinct, a theorem, music becomes the tool that allows you to see and reflect more clearly on your own feelings.
Music has this unique ability to talk straight to your inner world, and doesn’t necessarily request the process and the complexities of an analytical mind in order to be understood..It can just be felt.
That is at the core of “Perspectives”, which sees a release on the artist's imprint Vibrant Music.
This album reflects on moments and moods, but in the process of doing so it manages to balance between listening environments, making it a fine full LP listening experience, and at the same time offering some great club choices, with tracks like "Formation","Glimpses". "Dawn","Glimpses II" and "Cliff" a version of which has been released by XLR8R last year.
With "Perspective" Fluxion has no intention to impress, but rather express in a more honest way, and share a moment in time, full of intimate moods, and take us on a journey..
One where feeling the music, is at the center.
Fluxions Ripple Effect is the film score for a non-existing motion picture. This 9-track album is the result of experimentation and the combination of the producer's two most cherished art forms: electronic music and score music. Ironically the two worlds rarely seem to meet, despite the fact that score music has adopted a looser form in order to better adapt to film accompaniment, bringing it closer to electronic music which attempts to contradict form or shed it altogether. Fluxion felt the need to bring these two musical forms into dialogue with each other, lending structure to electronic and deconstructing score music to create a malleable and expressive hybrid. The album's production took two years from its original conception for the subliminal story to unfold into the completed product. Fluxion wanted to say as much as possible through the music, leaving the visuals as a blank canvas for the listener to create their own story. In the end, the goal is to give each member of the audience a unique audiovisual experience based on their own perception and interpretation
After the initial release from Transformations, the collaboration between Deepchord & Fluxion continues with the Bona Fide EP. The urban journey remains, with the duo challenging the audience with another colorful and sonically rich release. The duo has created their own multi-layering sound; a wide space cinematic environment. As before, two really engaging recordings that are not written with one specific environment in mind.
