Franck Collin also known as fleck E.S.C is a French producer based in tokyo and BRUXIA is his newest release under this moniker. Released digitally by the Croatian label Ghost Technology, BRUXIA's nine tracks will make you start 2011 with a blast. Catchy melodies, rich rhythm section, fat sounds, vocoder, electro and electronic influences make of this release a great one. The album whose title refers to the habitual involuntary grinding or clenching of the teeth (usually it happens at night when you're asleep), opens with "Function 1", an electronic mid-tempo which mix suspended atmospheres, funky leads, syncopated rhythms and vocoder inserts. "Conspiracy" opens the dances with a truly rich intricate robotic rhythmical web of sounds, like it was a mix of Dopplereffekt, Kraftwerk and Drexcyia. "Alternatives" it's an amazing tune that will convince you in no time thanks to its cool synth sounds that being alternated and enriched with samples and catchy melodic lines. Franck's ability to pick up cool crisp analog synth sounds and to build a very well balanced mix will pop up immediately during your listening of this album. "Dr Spook" (a great robotic electro techno number with classic electro drum sounds, fat bass lines and bleeping noises), "Videodrome" (an electro mid tempo tune sounding mysterious and menacing) and "Dizzy flow" (a track that sounds like an ambient electro tune influenced by Detroit techno) are the evidence that this genre has so much to offer if you know where to look at. Thanks to Ghost Technology 2011 looks promising and BRUXIA will shine during all the year. You can check the preview here:
