New UK producer Flowen has made waves (pardon the pun) along with his first two singles “In This Together” and “Closure” that got here out final yr, as his model is each within the EDM world and decidedly not of it. This is true for his subsequent single “Voyage”, due out this Friday, February 22.
“Voyage” is experimental within the sense that it’s composed considerably like a classical music, with numerous complicated melodies and ranging sounds. It might even be classically scored. The beat for this monitor, nevertheless, is rather more like an EDM or hip hop or halftime music, clocking in at round 90 BPM. It sounds fairly a bit quicker, nevertheless, as a result of the beat can be closely syncopated and form of jazzy. There is a drop after the intro like an EDM monitor, however it;s delicate and flows extra with the beat. Said beat switches up and begins to maneuver backwards about midway by way of the music however then switches again fairly shortly. It could possibly be seen as a break in EDM phrases however like all Flowen’s tracks, there’s a steady move to “Voyage” that additionally makes it a viable experimental digital monitor.
While “Voyage” appears fairly unconventional, it’s simple to image it being combined with EDM tracks in a set as a little bit of an interlude that will nonetheless have a danceable beat construction. Marrying the 2 worlds of EDM and experimental electronica just isn’t all the time simple, however Flowen appears to have nearly as good a shot at it as anybody along with his numerous manufacturing model and liquid but edgy ambient melodies.
“Voyage” by Flowen releases on February 22 on Fat Tape Records. It might be bought then on Beatport or streamed on Flowen’s Spotify.
