Comprising producer-engineer Joel Krozer ((Clark (Warp), Smerz (XL Recordings), When Saints Go Machine (Escho)) and Brian Della Valle (singer-songwriter of Of The Valley) the Copenhagen based duo got together when Joel heard Brian recording in the studio below his. Their encounter led to a series of late-night recording sessions, together with collaborator S ren Holme, that quickly became the cornerstone of their partnership and the formation of Fluqx. Monolith is the exceptional debut album of Fluqx and offers state of the art production and highly creative Electronica tracks with that special something. The sound of Fluqx is distinct - a merging of deeply warped synthesizers, swirling textures and Brian's affecting vocals. There is a versatile range of sounds and atmospheres across these twelve tracks - from the delicate arpeggios of 'Carvings' and 'Ephemeral Objects', to the massive drum sounds and cutting synth leads of 'Monolith' and 'Hanami'. Della Valle's warm falsetto navigates through this dynamic landscape with ease and hooks the listener in on tracks like 'Feather' and 'Staring At The Sun', whilst providing space to breathe on tracks like 'Here' and 'Golden Hour'. Elsewhere, ambient, droney textures are at the forefront on 'Mojave Booth' and 'Diamond Dust', maintaining the dreamy, otherworldly nature of the Fluqx sound.
