#ff054: ‘flicker’

h-ello.
we’re back with chapter number fifty-four of the flamboyant-five series. january is still on the go & we (or better said utmost of us) cannot wait until the summer in europe is making its comeback tour.
so, while we initiated our twitter-acc around 2 weeks ago, we came to the conclusion that it might be the right thing.
you’re more connected to the artists than on facebook, get sooner infos about releases than on soundcloud, be in touch with labels & their artists-to-watch in two-sixteen.
so is there something we’d like to critisize? well let’s say just one thing: the limitation of using only one-hundred-and-forty letters & symbols on one tweet.
yet, as we like to say skip the ‘nagging’-part, let’s skip that & get to the songs we have picked for this playlist.
number fifty-four, here we go:

1.Thostey – Ground To Walk On (Feat. Mirror Signal)

first song of the day is named ‘ground to walk on’, which is a collaboration between polish-artist ‘thostey’ & english man ‘mirror signal’.
we stumbled over ‘thostey’ on this day. as we like to go further & check out the man’s discography, we came by his latest release, an extended play named ‘when you fall’, that has been released on the young netlabel ‘pegdoll records’, which is based in bristol & london.
to describe the featured song is like to do describe the whole idea of the netlabel behind it:

We have sounds ranging from orchestral, cinematic, future garage, trip hop and much more…..

‘ground to walk on’ is the perfect example of what we’d like to convey: an amalgamation of futuristic sounds, fused with an angelic voice that wades his way through the listener.
the song can be purchased for a small fee as a package on the label’s website.
so be sure to get yours, say ‘hi’ to both artists & start to follow their path.

2.Sol Flare – Hide

we’d like to say ‘hi’ to a new member of the solar family: the london-based duo ‘sol flare’.
we came across dom’s & jenny’s project just a while ago, call it a coincidence, call it karma, just use a word for it.
so, while we were perusing their discography, we were amazed by their evolvement since day one, which has been around three years ago (based on soundcloud-info).
as we’d like to say that we like to check out any kind of release, doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner, a semi-pro or a pro, it literally tantalizes us to see an evolvement with the blank eye. same applies here.
it has been honestly a tough decision to take, for our fav on their disco, yet we managed to make one & picked ‘hide’.
the song has been a perfect example of how ‘sol flare’ does sound like: an electronica tune with a seraphic voice that has to be on your walkman.
before you’re going to check the other releases, take some time & check out the ‘live video’ on the track. it’ll mesmerize you. period.

3.Rumtum – Airwinds

‘airwinds’ is song number three on this list. being released on the latest-artist-compilation of LA-based netlabel ‘shoeboxx recordings’, you can fetch a copy on their soundcloud-page.
what you’re going to get is a panoply of mellifluous melodies, a pithy bass line-composition, with peculiar vocal-chops that are mixed together to create the ‘rumtum’way of sounding.
the denver-based beatmaker is known for his solipstic way of production & can be seen on live-shows, where you instantly start to dance, scream & smile.
so, while you’re going to listen to ‘airwinds’ a second or even a third time, be sure to check out ‘rumtum’s soundcloud-acc, because there might be some gems to be located.
all you have to do is to ‘click’ on the provided link. thank us later.

4.High Lucia – Sticky

‘high lucia’ is the next artist we’re going to talk about. the brighton-based producer is not an unknown person on this blog. we stumbled over leo’s music around a year ago, under his former alias ‘pále’.
since then, we somehow lost the sight of him. while making a little ‘investigation’, we came across the ‘high lucia’-acc & were baffled by terrific evolvement of his releases since then.
a panoply of profound music, released on labels, such as the london-based ‘lex records’, where you have to close your mouth pretty early before you’re going to ‘overdrool’. one of these has been ‘sticky’, the featured song on this list.
as you’re going to check out the release, you’ll listen to a futuristic garage-esque track, that creates a lush atmosphere, with such an intensity that you might think that this dream might be real.
a ‘sticky’-thing that is going to be in your eardrums for a while. don’t forget to say ‘hi’ to ‘high lucia’ on twitter & check out the decent discography on ‘lex records’.

5.Fybe:one – Figure It Out

‘figure it out’ is the last song we’re going to talk about. created & released by london-based producer ‘fybe:one’. we stumbled over greg’s twatter, ehrm twitter-account around two days ago. we were pretty impressed by the decent art work for the berlin-based label ‘project:mooncircle’, or mostly his profound releases as a musician. to describe his music: a merger between different genres, such as electronica, house, garage & a pinch of jazz.
so, might have an idea, perceived the feeling of ‘fybe:one’ tryin’ to convey, so that you’re totally excited to check this proper release that we put on the list.
and yes, you’re not going to regret it. to lose some words about ‘figure it out’ has been a real pleasure: an amalgamation of melodies mixed with eery-yet-catchy acapella-chops, based on a housey-garage-esque style of bass line is definitely something that has to be on our list.
get your copies. now.
