Following on from the label's debut Decollage EP, which was given a massive leg-up by admirer peers such as the likes of Leisure System's Barker and Jori Hulkkonen, this two track dance floor epic gets down on its knees and makes a massive impact with industrial and grinding techno. There's not a lot of holding back going on in this release, making it highly energetic and full of mind imprints that seem to echo on well after the music has ended. CutOff!CutOff! continue their memorable story with Fluxus which as the title suggests, is a real mover.
The first and title track gives us a quick drum and cymbal fill that's quickly doubled up with extra layers. A clunky synthetic and tone sifting bass note resonates along at regular intervals, it sounds like it's speaking. Some bongo riffs add to the rhythm-fest and the melodic digital sounds begin to make more of a scene. The music crackles back down to where it was before just for a moment and then extra rhythms switch on a new dimension to the sound. The pace is steady and invigorating, repetitive sections evolve at well timed bouts to bring fresh direction and energy to the otherwise constant instruction to dance.
Final track, Hi Red Center, takes that driving force and pushes it into a synthesiser based drum jamboree. Smokey tubular sounds formulate distortions and sub-rhythms that from the perspective given produce a gently flowing fractal sonic image. Even more deep and dirty sludge is applied and the music becomes irresistibly magnetic. Hand movements allowed while this is on, at around half way droning tones pull the atmosphere out in long candied strings. The drum loops are given the nudge with a tone shifter for a few moments, softening the landing of the heavy synths which soon follow. Quick changes to the listening angle and the focus of music section give this a swerving and drifting feel which at high speed can get quite exciting.
This two track single is a double scoop of quality dance floor material. Techno with all the right instruments to get people from all sides of the house involved, Fluxus brings it all home for a twelve minute workout to fresh and inventive uses of rhythm and industrial style music.
