François X will release a new EP, ‘Digital Fever’, via his recently launched XX Lab platform, tomorrow (25th March).
The Parisian artist’s first solo release since 2019 finds him tapping into sci-fi themes and the concept of dystopian private corporations (think Blade Runner’s Tyrell Corp, Alien’s Weyland Industries, Terminator’s Cyberdyne Systems). The producer’s familiar, high-velocity techno sound is out in force here, with wild robotic FX, his own heavily altered vocals loops, and some subtle pop and hip-hop production techniques merging for a properly pulse-racing EP.
Listen to ‘Fear No More’ below. Buy the EP via Bandcamp.
