Fluxion - Bipolar Defekt (Chain Reaction, 2000)

Greek electronic musician Konstantinos Soublis makes difficult techno, and by that I mean its simply too challenging for most fans of the genre. His tracks evolve very slowly and every element is so heavily processed that the origin of each sound has little to do with the result. In fact, he uses so much disorienting reverb that nearly all typical percussion is hidden beneath the dub basslines and raw tones.

Listening to this album is as puzzling as it is fascinating and enjoyable. The slowly undulating ambient dub style is usual for Chain Reaction but his production skills are definitive and unique. I get lost in these tracks, melting into them to the point that I feel a synesthesia. Truly intoxicating stuff.

Get It
