Francois X rose to prominence with a string of excellent techno EPs for Dement3d and Deeply Rooted House, but as his debut album so eloquently demonstrates, this is just one side to his sound. To underline this point, Irregular Passion starts with the greyscale ambience and thunder clouds of "Love Of A Lifetime", followed by the broken beats and menacing mood of "Blurry Lust" and the abstract sound scape that is "Just A Dream". The French producer's dance floor influences are audible on the belching bass of "Slave, No Slave", but the absence of kick drums means that it remains a home listening experience. "Shamefaced" sees him keep the tempo low with an eerily atmospheric mood piece, but eventually he gives in to his dance floor instincts on the stepping "Falling for Her" and the stripped back, cavernous "Dirty Chat".
