Bjarki, Bambounou, and Pessimist Rework Francois X on New Album
'Irregular Passion Reshape' LP is out November 25.
The original full-length LP, released in 2018 explored themes of euphoria and melancholy. With “Blade Runner”-esque soundscapes and bass-y club tracks, the French producer played with a variety of genres and references, holding the piece together with cinematic and hedonistic atmospheres.
For this new album, Francois X has invited an accomplished list of friends and artists, both established and newcomers, to re-imagine the album tracks, aiming to build a community of like-minded producers that boldly represent what XXX is all about. These include Bjarki, Anthony Linell, Bambounou, and Pessimist.
“I wanted a complete rework of my album, containing a wide range of musical directions. A good representation of what XXX is all about. The important thing for me was to have some real transformations on my original material, in a way its a complete new album.” — Francois X
