A l’image de son nom de scene, le jeune producteur anglais est insaisisable. Auto-producteur de ses prods il est deja l’auteur de plusieurs EP et remixs tres remarques. Sa musique est deja decrite comme un pont entre Bonobo et Flying Lotus. La comparaison est sans doute bien meritee !
When he’s not collecting glowworms and growing rare fruits, Catching Flies finds the time to make music. Music that pleasures your ears – a bass heavy yet melodic mesh of broody electronics and intricate rhythms, containing shades of everything from hip-hop to house, from soul to jazz.
It all began in late 2012, when a 22 year-old Catching Flies decided to self-release his first EP, The Stars. The EP’s lead track hit the coveted #1 spot on The Hype Machine (a feat he has gone on to repeat), and the EP has been downloaded an impressive 25,000 times to date. After the success of this first EP, the young producer uploaded a number of remixes and bootlegs, further laying down his own unique groove and carving out his own niche. Having since gone on to receive millions of plays on YouTube and attention from BBC radio, Catching Flies dropped another self-released EP, The Long Journey Home, which took ‘ambient music to a whole new level’ (Earmilk).
Catching Flies dropped a surprise track online in December 2014 – « Quiet Nights » received over 1 million streams in just 2 weeks, gaining him huge traction online amongst old fans and new. A much anticipated EP is due in Spring 2015.
