Fluxion – Vibrant Forms
Type Records have been running a tidy operation for well over a decade, releasing some truly landmark experimental music. The label has released works by massive names in the modern Ambient community including Peter Broderick, Goldmund, Svarte Greiner and Richard Skelton to name but a few as well as dabbling with even more leftfield electronic artists such as label owner John Twells’ Xela project, Jon Mueller and Ezekiel Honig. The latter combined Ambient sensibilities with subtle minimal rhythms and from this point it leads nicely to the introduction of the latest addition to their 100+ strong catalog…
Fluxion’s ‘Vibrant Forms’ first came out back in 1999 on German label Chain Reaction, Chain Reaction. The label was founded in 1995, focusing on Basic Channel and Dub Techno, working with the likes of Vladislav Delay, Monolake and Kostas Soublis’ Fluxion project. Kostas graced the label with a few releases and Vibrant Forms was one of the final releases before the label folded at the turn of the millennium. Big EP and album releases on Echochord will doubtless have gone some way to extend the reach of this talented artist but with Vibrant Forms, we have something truly special and deserved of a repress. The Dub Techno sound somehow always manages to sound fresh and timeless whereas many other forms of House and Techno tend to gravitate back to earlier rave influences.
It is perhaps within the Ambient leanings of the genre, as the echoing pads and delay echo effects resonate agelessly beyond its years and in ‘Vibrant Forms’ we’ve one of the finest examples.
