Fragil Musique reaches the 20th release mark, and offers us a very special debut EP from a newcomer to watch.
Vidock lands on the label with an unusual three tracker, oscillating between intense breakbeat excursions and moody Techno hybrids. “Dub Attack” is the main club weapon here. Cycling around the drum loop, pads and samples build up to heavy tension moments, then fade away to fully unleash the force of the stripped down broken kick-bass groove. The pressure is strong and never stops rising, gradually bringing the dancer to a manic arms-shaking state, while sporadic laser synth shots and percussion hints sprinkle the track, smartly shaping its three-dimensional aspect.
On the B Side, dance music UFO “Metamorph” is an epic journey through what feels like unexplored fringes of sample driven emotional dance music. Movie-esque haunting voices and disturbing sirens set the vibe, inviting one to drift along this dark and coloured ride. Fellow Nantes native Simo Cell goes trippy on the remix, taking apart the most heady bits of the original and extending them into a deep and breaky piece.
