I finally got my hands on the Different Phase LP by Favorite Flava. I’m really diggin’ it. I think these guys have a lot of talent and I’m really shocked that they don’t have many followers in the states. Dilla and Madlib heads would feel these guys. Here’s one of my favorite tracks off the album. There are plenty more gems on there. So do yourself a favor and cop one please.
I have been trying to post music by these guys all day. Been getting sidetracked looking at other music. So earlier today I tried to post some music by Stray (Swedish Producer) who happens to be apart of this group consisting of Erik Lidén (Erik L), Mattias Axelsson (Stray) & Paul Mac Innes. These guys make soulful electro based music that would make Prince proud he decided to make music. I’m a bit surprised that they do not have a huge fan base out here. Erik L is masterful when it comes to mixing and mastering, all the elements are so clear and crisp and Paul and Mattias silky smooth vocals soften the electronic textures. Definitely need to keep an eye out for these guys. They all have great side projects going on, but Favorite Flava might be the thing that gets them across the Atlantic and into your favorite venue. Enjoy.
