At Home With: Flamingosis

Flamingosis is New Jersey’s don of Future-funk.

With a seemingly impossible armada of Jazz samples and innovative breakbeat production techniques, the groove veteran never fails to bring the “summer time in the park” vibe to each of his releases. Today, we are honored to get a look inside Flamingosis’ personal library as he joins us for our latest edition of At Home With.

THE BREAKDOWN

1. Flamingosis – “Cosmic Feeling ”

“I think this one of my favorite tracks that I’ve made and I hope people feel the message of this song.  If you want it, you can get it with your love.” 

2. Niteflyte – “If You Want It

I love this band so much that I wanted to pay homage.  Sampled the chorus of this song for “Cosmic Feeling.” 

3. Hiatus Kaiyote – “Get Sun

“Excited for their new album to come out.  And they even featured Brazilian Jazz legend Arthur Verocai on this!

4. Moonchild – “Run away

“The beat in this song slaps! 

5. D’angelo – “Back To The Future (Part 1)

“D’angelo & The Vanguard Live was the best show that I’ve ever seen.  This track along with all the others on his Black Messiah album are amazing.

6. Mk.gee – “cz

“Once the hook comes in you’ll wanna hit that two-step.

7. Yves Tumor – “Gospel For A New Century

“This track sounds like what would happen if MF DOOM joined a punk rock band.

8. Milton Wright – “The Silence That You Keep (First Version)

“The final version of this song is great but there’s something about this rough draft version that sounds a lot more raw and appealing to me.

9. Ned Doheny – “I’ve Got Your Number

“Found about this artist because Kaytranada sampled him in one of his tracks.  It’s pretty killer and his music is in a similar kind of vein as Michael McDonald & Bobby Caldwell.

10. Daft Punk – “Voyager” 

“Pretty bummed that they broke up, but I’m happy they left behind an amazing catalogue of music.
