Those freaky dirtybirds have done it again! Obviously I can’t get enough of the gold that the ass-shakin’ label from San Francisco puts out, and the latest from England’s Tom Flynn is no exception. Hailed as Pete Tong’s “Best Breakthrough Producer of 2010″, Tom Flynn has had his life ensconced in house since the age of 12, but has really outdone himself with Be Yourself. Hit play and let the bass boom.
Catch your pupils dilating as the first breakdown of Be Yourself explodes into elephant-sized kicks. 808 toms go to war with each other, climbing to the height of dance floor euphoria. Funky vocal stutters, shoulder-shrugging claps, an eerie melodic break, and an otherworldly second drop. A punishing bassline carries over to With Flowers, only this time piano melodies lead us outside into the daylight as the title suggests. Reaching to the sky, this one doesn’t stop building all the way through; close your eyes and let the track burst with vibrance. Buy this truly stunning release exclusively at Beatport.
