It’s been a crazy month in my world, crazy in a good way may I add, but crazy enough to leave me without time to fully dedicate myself to a blog post or two each week (or am I just really lazy?) Yes probably. Having two jobs is certainly enriching, but inevitably has left me feeling massively lazy on the out-of-hours creative duties. I thought I’d treat you to something I find rather fitting in bringing together electronic music (a favourite of mine) and something a little more alien to me, print design.
I have to re-post this to my blog purely for remembrance’s sake. I’ve always been a big fan of Ulrich Schnauss’ musical pallette in that he both instills nostalgia and cements history into all of his work whether that be a lovelorn shoe-gaze melody or something disgustingly raucous from Jungle past.
I have to admit, I did fall victim to the James Blake Effect a couple of years ago. I doubt there would have been a single club in east London whose walls had not been graced by his track ‘CMYK’ after it came out in 2010; people were obsessed, literally.
I have to say, I think Flying Lotus is one of the most endearing producers I have witnessed in interview, video documentary and indeed live in performance. This short film created by OkayAfrica digs deep into the history of Flying Lotus himself. An interesting insight into the ancestry of one of my favourite electronic music producers.
