DEEP THROAT (AKA Francis Inferno Orchestra)
Loomer is proud to present Francis Inferno Orchestra’s techno alter ego ‘Deep Throat.’
Most Melbournians with even a toe in the local electronic music scene would know of local export Francis Inferno Orchestra aka Griffin James. Currently residing in the UK, his tracks have made their way into the record boxes of some of the world’s biggest names in house and disco.
James has since experimented in genres outside the house sphere entirely. Together with his friend and Melbourne resident Tyson Ballard he launched BBW, a platform for his first attempts at techno. The pair have released two 12-inches on the label, with James assuming the alias Deep Throat. With track titles like "Gag Reflex" and "Gush" and a rainbow-coloured theme, the label pokes fun at a genre renowned for austerity to take a tongue in cheek approach to the genre.
The music itself is far from it. Relentless and brutal, the first four cuts wouldn't be out of place in set from any of techno's main players. The tracks that James has released as Deep Throat are a long way from the mellow sounds he's best known for, with big breakdowns and a maximalist, big room approach. The new sound reasserts his knack for crafting attention-grabbing music that appeals to a large, unpretentious audience.
