FLOEX - Pocustone

Here's something you don't usually see on these pages. Tomáš Dvořák aka Floex - clarinetist, composer, producer and multimedia artist from Prague (Czech Republic) - specializes in jazz tinged electronic music. On this album (originally released in 2001), he mixes intricate songs with a set of short, experimental soundscapes. It's miles away from the hullaballoo of bass music we usually feature in these pages. But - and I can't stress this enough - this album is something you should really take some time to listen to and let it all sink in. The melodies are gorgeous, equal parts Cinematic Orchestra and Bonobo but done in a style uniquely his own. Listen to the samples below, and get buying.
