Strap yourselves in – Prague-based duo Fractions is about to send you skyrocketing into an apocalyptic psyche. Prepare yourself for hard-hitting, mind-altering beats and ‘an ever-present 4-to-the-floor kick.
Their aggressive melodies collide with the signature sounds of the 90’s rave. Giving way to subliminal growls of industrial distortions that put them on the map for today’s electronic body music and techno maelstrom. Their upcoming release is the techno tidal wave we need to kick things into high gear. Expect an array of sonic disturbances and ominous cuts.
The integral work on their latest project is “the perfect sublimation of acid and techno combined. Delivering nfectious leads that spiral into pulsing rhythms for what is an outstanding, no-nonsense and diverse take on modern-day warehouse music.”
Coming together in Prague
Russian producers Nikki Korobeynik and Artem Frolov bring together Fractions. Emitting high-energy, genre-bending tracks that are unapologetically raw, ominous, and quite reminiscent of what an apocalyptic rave would sound like.
They share the same energy as techno powerhouse Dax J,. Who also falls under Monnom Black- the same record label shared with Fractions and a number of other killer artists.
Fractions took off when Nikki and Artem came together at University in Prague. Both of their families decided to leave Russia in the early 2000s after the fall of the USSR. The guys were heavily into hardcore metal before diving into the field of electronic production. Which probably pays tribute to their belligerent sound.
They turned to the combative sounds of acid and rave after getting into the soundtracks of films like The Matrix, Mortal Kombat, and Blade. Which all have one thing in common: the apocalypse.
Keep your eyes and ears peeled for NITE NRG EP which is coming out on Monnom Black on 26th June.
