Florian M. aka FloFilz from the depths of the Ruhr region has been delighting us with finest instrumental music since around 2012. He is also part of a producer’s collective that rediscovered jazz vibes for themselves and their music, capturing the sound of the golden age and laying it onto beats. Old school meets new flavor. This idea may not be new, but FloFilz’s productions have their own spirit. The artist brings a certain lightfootedness and elegance to his productions, effortlessly creating simple yet atmospheric tunes with swinging drums using his great feel for samples. Nothing seems forced – FloFilz seems to reveal the natural harmony between hip-hop and jazz like it has always existed.
Over the course of the last couple of years he has gained a very strong following. Nearly 40.000 people are following his soundcloud channel & majestic.com has posted a handful of his productions.
Speakthru, his first album on Jakarta Records, is a testament to the connective power of music. Transcending musical boundaries, Flo managed to bring together a wide range of MCs to feature on his tracks such as LA’s own Blu and Co$$ up to Norway’s Ivan Ave and London’s Barney Artist, including a half-dozen of powerful instrumentals sprinkled in between. “Basement Jazz” the first single off the album has been featured on a wide selection of blogs suchs as okayplayer.com, 2dopeboyz.com, egotripland.com, pigeonsandplanes.com, juice.de and many, many more.
