Producer and designer Vaphoree from Madrid is one of the promising upcoming artists for 2016, a member of the club trax avant-garde who hasn’t come to full bloom yet this year. With Flakka EP, he showcases the wide range of his experimental sound, which we will be hearing a lot more of next year.
The main constituents of Vaphoree’s signature sound are dancehall and grime, with subtly dosed concentrations of club music and dystopian futuristic ambient, together crystallising into a brutal dancefloor energiser. Hence the playful reference to the memetic, experimental horror drug Flakka.
Next to the two original productions, the heavy ‘Flakka’ and the more light-feeted ‘Mayah’, Classical Trax afiliates Callosum (Italy), Lunar and MINA (UK) have have resynthesised FLAKKA with other experimental flavours from the underground club spectrum.
