11 track album + 58 minute DVD of unreleased material performed live
You could say Tokyo based French artist Fleck ESC has been building up to a full length release on Bass Agenda Recordings. He remixed The Bokanovsky Process in 2013, released the stunning 'Slime Master EP' in 2015, appeared on Touched Bass for Macmillan Cancer Support in 2016 and now...Citizen Cage is here; 11 tracks of top class Electro with which his name has become synonymous.
Citizen Cage, like all good albums, takes you for a ride. The experience is like a night bus journey around Tokyo, seen through the eyes of a wise, perceptive and not entirely human traveller.
Each of the eleven stops on the journey creates a snapshot of the city; a series of parts making up a whole. As a passenger on this ride in the middle of the night you will witness beauty, urban struggle, waste, fun, beauty, violence, spirit, darkness and everything from the mysterious and spiritual to the mechanical and functional. As the title suggests there is a question underlying this - are you trapped? Do you belong here? Do you want to be here?
Whatever the answer, these are 11 views through the eyes of one modern citizen - Citizen Cage.
