Fresh Starts :: Flotation Drops ‘Brand New’ Single

a1300547580_10

Boom bap is not dead yet.  Insight and knowledge is not dead yet.  The latest example comes from Flotation, based out of Dallas, in the form of the single Brand New.  Featuring production by Ritchy Flo and a pitch perfect guest verse from MolekularBrand New is an example of making something fresh out of a familiar approach.  As Flotation states, ‘we bring the funk back daily’, and if this is a taste of what may come in the form of a full-length project, I am definitely ready to scope it out.  Props on the design and presentation of this project.. it’s cool to see someone drop the single / instrumental / acapella format again.  Dig it and download it.

Dallas-based rhymespitter Flotation has just delivered a hard hitter for everyone’s listening pleasure.  No Plateau is hella solid from front to back.  I could talk about it, or you can do yourself a flavor and listen.  And, as always, support indie musicians.

Keep Rising :: J-Kid & Flotation ‘Learn To Fly’

Nothing is more gratifying than watching an artist embrace the aesthetic of DIY, and slowly improve over time.  J-Kid, already a solid emcee, has been embracing his visual side, and Learn To Fly, a collaboration iwth Flotation, is one of his stronger achievements in the realm of music video.  Solid song, multiple locations, linear visual narrative and callback shots… we just might have a budding filmmaker on our hands.
