Previews now up for Felix Ks debut album. I am excite for this one, hope i manage to get a copy on wax i reckon they are going to sell fast!

'Flowers Of Destruction' is the official Debut Album of Felix K. Record Release Date is 04.05.2013.

Some things are created without any particular purpose, some things just happen. According to Felix K, his 15 track debut album 'Flowers of Destruction' is just such a thing. Maybe this also explains his decision to only use numerical titles, which emphasizes on the literal level what becomes obvious when listening to the tracks behind the numbers. This album is a coherent whole, indeed each track has a distinct vibe of its own, but when taken together they form a space of transformation where various moods, sounds and rhythms blend harmoniously into each other. The album unfolds its acoustic beauty because it simply avoids posing ever-so obvious imperatives to impress, somehow like nature slowly reclaiming the urban concrete jungles of a post-industrialist dystopia.'Flowers of Destruction' can be located in a musical universe somewhere between electronica, techno, ambient and 170 bpm. Some of its tracks are driven by Felix' unique and compelling drum sequencing with lots of sub bass and pushing percussions, whereas others take the time to dive into ambient depths and widths with their dubby drones and mesmerizing melodies. They all make use of contrast and opposing elements that create a fascinating tension, like the destructive force of an explosion in slow motion.In terms of its physical appearance, the album's 3x12" grey vinyl will correspond with the different shades of grey of the full cover artwork. There will be 500 copies released in May on Hidden Hawaii Limited and distributed by Hard Wax. A couple of weeks later, the album will also be released digitally.

Did see when you posted this up man, but forgot to reply.
Looking forward to when this drops. Half the tunes on there have me interested, so going to have to buy it when it see's the light of day.
Was hoping it was going to be for this Friday shipping, given the release date mentioned, but no sign of it thus far. Fingers crossed for this weekend / next week.

I'm taking that this is what the LP will look like - https://www.facebook.com/flxk1/posts/10151555126730210

The hidden hawaii bits are funny as they are generally only distributed by Hardwax in Germany (sometines Juno has them too) and they generally appear on the site midweek rather than on any sort of Friday shipping thing so keep your eyes peeled on Facebook for the link as I have a feeling these wont last long!

Ill post the link up here when i see it.

Just saw this on his facebook. About £29 / £30 to the UK inc P&P.
Holding out for one of the usual UK online outlets to have this sometime soon
Yeah i paid £30 for it as its never guaranteed to appear in the UK stores and the price on discogs will be ridiculous once there gone. Keep your eye on Juno, I remember them having the Martsman and AnD ones briefly last year

Plus i dont think £30 is that bad considering that if it was say £20 in the UK it would probs be £25 including shipping so in the grand scheme of things £5 extra is nothing

I hate having to buy from multiple places to get what I want although the main issues i have at the moment involve not having enough money to buy what i want or actually being at home to play them :(
