Premiere: B1 – Floog – Labeled [WSS010]

Today’s premiere is all about Floog new EP on Why So Series, the 10th release of the imprint called ‘Toolmeric’, and his cut on B1 names ‘Labeled’.

Growing up with the influence of Depeche Mode, since 1995 Floog started to experiment with music, not only until 2000 when he evolved his true skills. After meeting Livio and Roby, forming the well-known trio, they had massive releases played by fabled names like  Ricardo Villalobos, Luciano, and Richie Hawtin. George’s ascension was big, allowing him to play alongside his mates in venues like Amnesia, Fabric, and Sunwaves. In 2016 he decided to create a new project, independent from Premiesku, with capacious releases, not only for different labels but for his own as well. Releasing expressivity while playing live, Floog manages to control the drum machines and analog synths, creating raw and melodic patterns lifting the venue.

This 10th release, on Nu Zau’s label Why So Series, is a celebration of another well-thought and finely crafted EP.

‘Toolmeric’ features two sides, each containing two tracks: A1 ‘Toolmeric’, A2 ‘Fanxtasy’, B1 ‘ Labeled’, and B2 ‘Istica’. ‘Labeled’ is as playful and catchy as you expect it to be, a retrieval of ludic reverberations. With constant strength, the 127BPM is fixing an agitated resonance. Although it is repetitive, the sounds are arranged in a measure that it can create depth and a discontinued intensity. Mingling a frenetic vibe, the track sounds crisp and inviting, almost like an auditory revival. For sure, it won’t take long until there will be discovered many modalities to be combined behind the decks, as it allows the possibility to be arranged in such a creative way for every artist. Along with being a complete approach of the genre, ‘Labeled’ is wrapping our ears up in a condition of fait accompli equanimity. With no harsh noises, there are no intermittent passages, allowing us to conclude that Floog’s arrangement is fluid and audibly pleasurable.

Taking everything into consideration, this sounds like another dancefloor tune or audition culmination, letting Floog rest in his composure, assuring him that this makes no exception of being a collector’s gem.
