FRANCOIS X – DIGITAL FEVER
RELEASE DATE 25th MARCH 2022
REF : xxl003
FORMAT : VINYL + DIGITAL
More Than 2 years after his last solo project, François X returns with his new EP Digital Fever on his new platform, XX LAB.
Recorded prolifically during covid this record unveils a profound sense of creative freedom in how François X’s music has evolved recently. Shifting from academic techno structures in his previous work, to a more brutal and edgy aesthetic, François has definitely unleashed his productive spirit.
The opening track “Forever’ N’ ‘Fever’ represents a prime example of this imaginative boiling mind, setting off the EP’s murky tone with its evocative trappish vibe. This driving effervescence brings out a remarkable plurality in the tonalities of the compositions, swinging between the prompt and fiery club-ready atmosphere of “Lone Wolf Cabin” to the ecstatic and emotive chemistry of “Shame Stare”. This paradoxical structure can also inform us about its creator, as a retranscription of the emotions that run through him.
Challenging his role as an artist, the selfishness that comes with it and the limit of his dedication, François X is acting as a contemporary cow-boy, deeply entwined with his utopian dreams.
