FLASH-X-007 | Florian Meindl - Nonlinear Times (2x12" Album) - Releasedate: 22. February 2019
We were always living in nonlinear times, but a significant cycle is coming to an end so we are noticing a growing number of severe changes and happenings caused by the nonlinear nature of things. For human beings it's difficult to imagine exponential growth despite it surrounding us in almost every aspects of life. In music one can find such nonlinear increases or logarithmical declines in the core of sound creation itself, namely in envelopes controlling levels, texture and frequencies. But also in real life in the rise and fall of popularity, in viral news or in the development of music technology. Utilising his sound pallet comprised of modular synthesis and electronic instrumentation, Florian Meindl highlights these resonances of thought and exploration with a sonic statement of his current vision around electronic music in the form of his 4th artist album.

FLASH-X-009 | Black Lotus - Resilience EP (Incl. Florian Meindl Remix)
Born in the city of madness Berlin, the multimedia artist and DJ Black Lotus steps up from being a secret hint for extatic and rough DJ sets in the local scene and enters the world of recorded music. After playing many Berlin underground clubs like Griessmühle, KitKat or Suicide Circus she finally makes her debut release on FLASH Recordings with three tripping, parahypnotic and clearly floor oriented Techno tracks as well as a hard hitting remix by the label-head Florian Meindl.
FLASH-X-006 | Florian Meindl - Free Fall EP
The free fall, to dive head first into something, is scary for most people. For some it is the most exciting thing however and the only possible path anyways. Florian is one of those driven artists who never sounds the same, his signature tone is the free fall into new soundscapes, new ways of using his analog electronic instruments and carving out the essence for the dancing individual.
FLASH-X-005 | Florian Meindl - Metaphysics EP (Incl. Denise Rabe Rmx)
The X Vinyl Series continues with label head Florian Meindl at the helm with the upcoming release Metaphysics. Synonymous with deep. dark techno. Florian does not disappoint with this 4 track EP. enlisting in demand producer and Rabe label boss Denise Rabe on remixing duties. Playing live with his Modular Synth set up. Florian began working on the concept for what would become these three original tracks while playing shows over the last month. The live jam character can clearly be felt in the first two tracks Metaphysics and Holomorphic Function. Florian s original Bell s Theorem has a deep melodic structure. With Denise Rabes interpretation. the track is contorted through some serious distortion pedals and broken beat to match her dark take on the synth line. The outcome is an impressive piece for one of those never ending nights in concrete walled rooms with oversized loudspeakers.

FLASH-X-004 | Florian Meindl - Time Illusion Remixes (Lucy, Sigha, TWR72)
Florian Meindl's third artist album "Time Illusion" marked another big milestone in his career. After several live act shows, where he showcased his flair for live performance with some heavy equipment including his Eurorack ModularSystem, he has picked 3 artists who he admires for their own unique take on techno music to remix the album. His choice fell on LUCY, who is responsible for the curation of the highly respected Stroboscopic Artefacts imprint, on SIGHA who is known and respected for his modular system performances and production techniques on labels like Token or Blueprint. The third choice fell on up and coming Netherlands based producer and DJ duo TWR72 who continually put out fresh and game-changing releases on their label FLOAT Rec. The LUCY remix spans on a whole A side with 45 rotations per minute and opens a window in a yet unknown dimension of expanding effect drones which takes the listener on an extraordinary trip of its own. He took the opportunity and wove the breakbeat from the original composition into a straight-clocked rhythm while giving the harmonic content a new unheard surreal depth. This track has got the potential to suck the dancers minds into a strange journey and yet keep them on the tidy rhythm. SIGHA's interpretation of "Frame Of Mind" manages to be heavy and soft at the same time with industrial noise movements and mystic synth sequences emerging and disappearing. The beauty in this masterpiece lies in the balance between the sweet harmonic content and the pounding beat construction, which keeps moving and modulating until the very end. TWR72 delivered a perfectly working and grooving DJ weapon, which is highly playable in all sorts of situations. They perfectly managed to incorporate the key elements from the original into their very own signature sound. The eclectic alternation between a suspense-packed part and a pure forward going beat section makes this tune outstanding and joyful to put on the turntable again and again.
