FLOX # NU REGGAE - SOLO
A JOURNEY, A DISCOVERY, A VISON... SOME DOORS, WHEN OPENED, CAN PULL YOU INTO A NEW OVERWHELMING WORLD.
This journey started for Flox on the Reunion island, in the lost heights of the Mafate cirque. It is in this area cut o from the world, only accessible by foot, that the English multi-instrumentalist found himself face to face with the thrilling and endless feeling of being lost and in danger once again. A sensation that had faded away through time, weakening the flickering fl ame of inspiration. Listening only to his instincts, leaving aside past experiences and moving forward freely are the main ingredients of this sixth album « Taste of grey ». An album conditioned by inspiration, each song catching the feeling of the moment and releasing unblemished emotions.
At ease with the di erent lines of artistic creation, the multi talented craftsman once again composed, arranged, played, and recorded « Taste of grey »; a complex mix of organic and digital music balanced between deep Jamaican rhythms and loose funky beats. Breaking down styles to build his own, spending hours reinventing a personal electro vibe that moves back and forth from rap to singing and from darker to lighter landscapes. Rather than the simple choice of black or white, Flox has chosen a path with more subtle shades of grey. A step into the unknown, writing love songs when political issues had mainly been a major theme. Writing about feelings, unclenching fists to come up with an album that tells a full story. You could listen to the album « Taste of grey » in random but this would also change the story line...
