One of the many monikers of Greek producer Konstantinos Soublis, active on the dub techno front since the late 90s, Fluxion’s impressive craftsmanship and intuitive mastery of slow-building, immersive yet intangible techno have certainly not gone unnoticed. Associated with key European underground label Basic Channel and its even more intrepid spin-off imprint, Chain Reaction, Soublis released a number of 12’’s and a compilation of his best output, Vibrant Forms (1999), which Fact Magazine called “the only Greek ambient techno album you’ll ever need.” Its recent vinyl reissue served as proof that Fluxion’s painstakingly precise, trance-inducing aesthetic had passed the test of time with flying clicks and cuts. This low-profile producer has also released material both vigorous and introspective as Silex, Unsquare Mode or under his real name, on his Vibrant Music imprint as well as Resopal Schallware and Denmark’s Echocord. He cooks up his complex, ever-evolving rhythmic template using fluid streams of sound, hypnotic melodies, viscerally felt ambience, and woozy synths. Broadwalk Tales, his latest album featuring Jamaican vocalist Teddy Selassie, is slated for an April release. EM15 is proud to welcome this unanimous programmers’ pick for his Canadian festival debut.
