ambient into trance

PLANET GENIUS's Flux Volume I features many traditional techno attributes, but with dramatically different timbres and intriguing arrangements that elevate it far above your average fare. King Creole mixes mainstream tribalism with Art of Noise brass flourish, creating a splendid morass of swirling rhythms. Tribe 251 is a riotous celebration, while Bliss in Circles opts for the strange - Residential rhythms, a gentle pulsing and a distant female opera singer that all makes you feel like you're in a slow spiral.
