François X will open 2019 with the launch of a new label entitled ‘DEMENT3D XXX’, with the first EP coming courtesy of the Parisian himself.
Operating as a sister label to his longstanding DEMENT3D imprint, founded back in 2011 alongside co-founder HBT, the new imprint and project will serve as a cultural platform for artists to share visions and expansive productions not confined to the worlds of house and techno, giving artists the freedom to explore genres across the electronic sphere. This approach stems from François’ own personal approach to music production and DJing, which has an emphasis on warm, emotive and sensual cuts at its core.
The inaugural EP comes from François X, due March 7th, with the four tracks featured on ‘Murky Dreams' bridging the gap between his past and forthcoming work as well as his future vision for the imprint, incorporating broken arrangements, captivating soundscapes, and immersive textures to reveal a warmer, more house-focused side to X’s sound across slower, entrancing tempos.
Whilst Zoumenou’s productions remain centred around his own personal vision of the night, highlighted by the track titles across the package, the cuts explore and delve deep into the idea of open expression within landscapes heightened through the sense of both obscurity and mystery, returning back to ideas explored within his ‘Irregular Passion’ LP released in 2018.
Further projects on the label will be announced soon.
François X - ‘Murky Dreams’ is released on DEMENT3D XXX, March 7th.
