Genre/Influences: Minimal-electro, techno-body.

Background/Info: French producer François-Xavier Michel better known under the Millimetric moniker is back on track (after a rather long studio silence) releasing his new work at the new label Nu Body Records (set up by Ethan Fawkes and Fabrice Torricella).

Content: “Deflection” takes off with the title track, which sounds in the truest tradition of Millimetric: minimal electronics mixed with good-old EBM bass lines, dry snare drums and a techno boost.

We next get remixes by Romance Disaster, Ethan Fawkes and Electrosexual. All remixes are following the electro-minimalism of the original edit.

+ + + : Millimetric is a project I’ve always supported for its unique blend of EBM and techno. The cool sound treatments, solid bass lines and vintage influences still have a real hypnotic feeling. Among the remixes I especially like the dark-technoid approach by Ethan Fawkes.

– – – : Some passages (remixes) are a little bit too techno-orientated, but it for sure all depends if you prefer EBM instead of techno music. I can’t say “Deflection” is the best song I’ve heard from Millimetric so in the end I expected a bit more from this ‘comeback’.

Conclusion: I’ll still move on tipping Millimetric as a reference when it comes to this type of music, but there are more ‘inspired’ and efficient productions from this great sound-guru.

Best songs: “Deflection – Ethan Fawkes Remix”, “Deflection”.

Rate: (7).
