Flakơ | Honey Drips

There’s a sense of the freedom, intimacy and depth to the sound of London-based producer Flako’s latest EP Eclosure. That’s not in the way that an overload of ideas could become overwhelming but in that a tapestry of acoustic and electronic sounds can weave a cocoon of wellbeing around its listener. Released on fledgling East London label Five Easy Pieces just last month, four tracks offer space and escapism through the subtle textures you mightn’t expect to find from a resident of a city best known for its gloomy winters and dreary weather. Yet, in a world where natural and synthetic binaries are becoming increasingly more integrated into our everyday lives, these are the truly beautiful recordings of the dub-doused, post-genre type, recalling Arcadian escape. An exciting feeling of flux breezes through the effervescence of ‘Honey Drips’ and the cyclic respiration, trundling over the occasional animal sample, in ‘Lion’s Mane’.
