Celebrating the release of his debut studio album Daymaker, Brooklyn-based electronic solo-act Flamingosis expands upon the foundation set via the release of the album’s three singles ‘Wild Summer’, ‘Daymaker’ and ‘Cosmic Feeling’ all released over the course of the last year. Daymaker is an electronic journey through time and space, melding high energy future-funk beats with melodic soundscapes, spaced out synths, and groovy guitar riffs. Available now on all streaming services of choice, limited edition Daymaker vinyl and merchandise options are also available inclusive of 180g double LP with pink discs and a 12×24 poster insert, beach towel, sunglasses and more exclusive items.
Daymaker is peppered with a potpourri of collaborations and samplings from both all-star talent and up-and-coming artists across a breadth of complimenting genres. With contributors ranging from keyboardist Borahm Lee [Pretty Lights], Jeff Franca [Thievery Corporation], Hunter Roberts, hip-hop funk duo Recess and Mike Tallman [Euforquestra], all while incorporating samples from the late ’70s-early ’80s from the likes of Graham Central Station, Tim Maia, The Voices of East Harlem, Eddie Hazel, Niteflyte, and more.
“It’s the first time I’ve made original compositions in a studio session with musicians,” he elaborates. “I was initially scared, but so much great material came out of the sessions. We weren’t just passing files back and forth online. It was hands-on. You never know if it’s a full band or an electronic hip-hop beat. It was so cool to make music in a new way.”
