EDLX.031 – Bells - Terence Fixmer - EDLX.031
“Itâ€™s been over a year since the Planete Rouge graced our fair roster, which is why weâ€™re pleased to welcome Terence Fixmer back into the EDLX fold with â€˜Bellsâ€™.
This is the fifth stand-alone EP from him for Electric Deluxe, on top of his last LP â€˜Comedy Of Menace,â€™ and offers three more exquisite samples of what the techno veteran does best. Almost a counter-point to Fixmerâ€™s last EDLX releaseâ€”the dubby, warmed through â€˜When The Sunâ€™ EPâ€”â€˜Bellsâ€™ is a homage to the pitch black dance floors of the night, with all his hypnotism and industrial hues in place.
â€œBellsâ€ opens right in the thick of it, with alarm knells and viscous vapours swirling round a lasso loop that will hook you until sunrise. â€œIn Chainsâ€ is itâ€™s raw cousinâ€”just as dark, unsettled, and riled with analogue sounds. But as midnight begins to dip into eternity, closer â€œSubspace Twoâ€ offers up a lasting sunny reprieve. The EP ends on a serotonin-soaked moment where dub, techno and house close their eyes and sway as one. â€˜Bellsâ€™ is a versatile record, which sees Terence Fixmer cater for every nocturnal occasion. “
