[Release] Frank FM – Foreign Affairs EP (Melted Recordings 010)

3 detroit/dub techno tracks from Frank FM on 12″ vinyl as well as digital formats. Nice vibes and blend of styles.

Frank FM made the detroitish, chordish and housy two-tracker mtd.003 “motion sense + can’t let you go” some years ago. After this pausing now he is back with more deep techno and techhouse up to real detroit techno sound on his mtd.010 “foreign affairs ep”. He builds a spatial and slightly spherical up to a powerful sound – building a bridge to his former release.

The three tracks are telling a little story about a love affair in a foreign country. The background photo could be an out of focus shot by a private investigator. The first track “glossy lips” represents the female side – a slowly upbuilding deep chordish techhouse track with an unsteady rhythm and sub-bass. This positive atmosphere grows with “smooth deepness” – which speaks for itself, but it also comes with chords and a straight beat beside the liquid techno sound which raises up and down again to ease the listener diving in a cosmos. Finally “want you back” with frantic random chords and a faster and harder detroit techno rhythm – describing the wish to get somebody back. This track ties in with the Frank FM sound “back to his roots” of his first release on melted recordings.

My favourite track(s) from the EP? – Smooth Deepness.
