Fabrice Lig Roots Of The Future
- Words: Tim Pratt
- Label: Raygun
31-year-old Belgian techno producer Fabrice Lig (a.k.a. Soul Designer) already has a leg up on most of his European contemporaries, having recorded tracks for Detroit luminaries Kevin Saunderson and Daniel Bell. Indeed Lig's tracks share Detroit techno's distinct melodic, electro-tinged motifs. Highlighted by tracks like the deep, thumping "Escape From Nowhere," the lively "Galapagos," and the delightfully melodic "Thru Your Soul," Roots Of The Future is a stylish compendium of Lig's releases for German label Raygun. His lush keyboards, tough, dubby beats, and feathery strings stand out on this retrospective of some of his best Motor City-influenced work in recent years.
