Warped synth lines and swirling textures
create the sonic playground for Fluqx introspective, ‘vocal infused’ world.
Comprising producer-engineer Joel Krozer
and Brian Della Valle, the Copenhagen
based duo got together when Joel
heard Brian (singer-songwriter Of The
Valley) recording in the studio below his.
Their encounter led to a series of latenight recording sessions, together with
collaborator Søren Holme, that quickly
became the cornerstone of their partnership
and the formation of Fluqx.
“His uniquely deep, dark voice got me
curious- how would he sound over
these tracks I’m working with? It turned
out to be at the other extreme of his vocal
range where they excelled” Joel remembers.
Their signing with hfn music leads to the
release of their debut single ‘Vanishing
Point’ in 2019, which makes use of
desolate synth landscapes contrasted
with a intimate vocal delivery over vast, slow-moving drum patterns. Della Valle
delivers vocals that invoke motion, shifting
around large, otherworldly objects,
detailing their outline. Its textures are a
product of Joel’s Copenhagen studio,
featuring walls of historic analog equipment,
the same he uses when working
with artists such as Clark (Warp), Smerz
(XL Recordings) and When Saints Go
Joel’s passion for photography inform
Fluqx’s visual aesthetic, contrasting microscopic close-ups with vast, open landscapes.
