#ff049: inundated variety
it’s monday again & we’re finally back again with a new chapter on our oldest series, the so called ‘flamboyant five’. as the name already says it’s a petite compilation of tracks we stumbled over the last week. as we had to skip the article for the last week due the reason that we did not have one single working computer & internet connection, we were sort of ‘sobering up’. albeit, we do not see ourselves as addicts, more like people who are driven by their passion. the passion to show love, share some moments & write about it in trivial synth-compositions & lyrics. all we tend to do is sharing & caring, not because we’re paid to do so, it’s just because of the aforementioned passion & dedication.
yet, we’re not going to start to make this sounding tediously. instead, besides of sayin’ ‘sorrryyy for the last week’s drought’, we like to lose some words about our featured artists on #ff049, called ‘inundated variety’:
1.Dems – Made For Myself (Blackmif Remix)
you might recognize the name ‘dems’ for one of our previous articles. if not, here’s a terse description: dan, david & duncan from london came around four years (that’s what soundcloud says) together to create ‘electronica’ under the aforementioned alias ‘dems’. being known for versatility in electronic music, the guys have gained the attention with tunes over tunes.
in two-fourteen, dems finally released their long-anticipated long play ‘muscle memory’, a panoply of ambient, electronica & pop music. one of the songs on the release was ‘made for myself’. while we always love to hear reinterpretations of tenacious originals, it has been another level of pleasure to have a listen to ‘blackmifs’ face-lift (or call it reinterpretation) of that song.
yemi (that’s his real name) aka ‘blackmif’, an electronic music producer based in london, is one of those ones to watch in the future. not only because of this tenacious remix of the dems’ track, but also his solipstic style of music production is something interesting & refreshing. to lose some words about the remix has been the easiest task for today: whether you’re a fan of dank-dark wobble bass elements or ambient-esque synth-compositons, the song has got our attention with such a intensity, that we might have to skip the finalization of this article to listen to it again.
2.Colourwaves – Revival
‘colourwaves’ is the next artist we’re going to talk about. the dreampop-electronica music producer is based in sydney, australia & magically appeared around four years ago with his first extended play called ‘distractions’. since then, ryan (which is his real name) has released melodic panaceas from month to month.
and to talk about melodic panaceas without giving an example might be so wrong. so we did what we had to do & picked ‘revival’, a song which is part of his ‘world warp’ extended play. ‘world warp’, an impeccable example of ‘colourwaves’-style of music, really ‘gave us the chilllls’. not only because of the seraphic compositions, but also the positive atmosphere created by the melodies.
being available for free sugar-coasts the day even more. so while we are going to talk about sugar & bees, be sure to give ryan a listen, fetch a copy of ‘revival’ & let the feeling of the ‘colourwaves’ embrace you.
3.Sángo – Na Hora (Ft. Faktiss & Chris McClenney)(Jamie Blake Remix)
next song & we have yet again a new beatmaker in our roster. ‘jamie blake’ (not to mix up with ‘james blake’), is a seattle-based producer that started to release tunes some months ago. being featured already on mixtapes from the ‘team supreme’ (if you don’t know ‘team supreme’, please go google it now), the young beatmaker has gained public attention with terrific beats & melodies.
and so while we’re talking about trenchant beat production & melodies, do us a favor & check out one of his latest releases, a remix of ‘na hora’, originally written by seattle-based soulection-legend ‘sángo’. it will be obvious that you first might think that this kind of release can not be remixed to sound better so that you won’t make a listen.
yet, as we always tend to say to impede to be prejudical, do us a favor & check out jamie’s reintrepation. why? what you’re going to hear is a flamboyant re-calibration fused with typical elements from ‘jamie blake’, such as the pithy kickdrums or the savvy usage of the acapella from the original.
being available for free gives you the extra push to check this out, so while you’re going to think about it, others will be listening to it on repeat.
4.Croox – Oracle
next stop is going to be at ‘oracle’, a track by the trio ‘croox’. based in london, the group has been founded in december, two-fourteen. since then, they came up with some serious output to mention here.
one of those is ‘oracle’, a fuse of electronic music with hip hop & lush voices that is going to melt your eardrums away. by listening to the song, we catched a glimpse of the true potential of these guys & while we were still thinking about that, we tried to check the other releases. with pleasure.
it’s not that we tend to write more about more downtempo than uptempo music in the last weeks, it’s more like that we try to show the audience people who totally deserved to be mentioned somewhere. do us a favor & take a look on the croox-webpage. not only because of its solipstic design, it also shows you with such a precision the latest releases, videos & infos about their future. a big thank you to you guys, we’re going to follow your path.
5.Drama We Cause – Hippo Flats
last song for today & we have here yet another stunner. ‘hippo flats’ by the green bay-based trap/future-bass/electronic-duo ‘drama we cause’ is track number five for today.
while you were wondering who these guys are, we like to say that you’re not alone (haha). with that gamut of possibilities, you’re going to miss releases that are that good, that you probably have to press the play button again.
so, we like to say ‘hi’ to ‘drama we cause’ & hopefully it will be not the last time. to lose some words about the track: being released as a part of their ‘crooks’-long play, you’ll get a feeling of the creativity of these guys. whether we’re talking about a solipstic style of melodical writing or the whole arrangement, ‘drama we cause’ really should be on your list to watch. give them a like, follow their path & check out the rest of the ‘crooks’-lp.
be sure to check all the updates of the artists, their posts on facebook, like their pictures on twitter, give them a follow, a hug to their labels & don’t forget to eat some vegetables. ok bye.

the end of the tale, but not of this book.
