Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD


Thursday, June 30, 2011


German webzine, kultur[terrorismus] recently published a review of Duality.

Below is the english translation:

"...In my personal discography, some albums are classified as "Crossover Dance Floor" and that would be a perfect description for the album, 'Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD' by Chicago-based musician/producer FluiD. Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD is released on Alrealon Musique (based in Switzerland and the USA), who released a trendy and stylish digipack CD.

Christophe Gilmore alias FluiD – a proud but critical American (a rare combination), which shows through his work the present and the hypothetic al future of his country. Because his overall vision is probably negative or pessimistic, this album has a dark touch.

Musically, FluiD has created a tasteful blend of Dub, Trip Hop, Metal, Hip-Hop and Noise-Core. In this album, melodies and experimentation share equal parts. Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD can please Massive Attack listeners as well as well as those of a more specific crowd.

My favorite track is clearly the catchy 'Dread Futures' (I love Reggae!) it presents the finest Dub combined with distorted guitar lines.

In conclusion, 'Envisioning Abstraction: the Duality of FluiD' is the perfect album for people who love “out of the box” music, multicultural love & Massive Attack!

I like it and I recommend it!..."
