‘Uteki’ is the first teaser from beat virtuoso FloFilz’s upcoming project, accompanied by UK jazz producer and composer Alfa Mist. Marking his first release since his EP ‘Two For Mistake’ in 2020, Alfa Mist provides a virtuous mix of piano and rhodes coupled with FloFilz’s mellow violin forming a sultry blend of Contemporary Jazz and Hip-Hop.
The artwork has been created by Indonesian illustrator Fatchurofi who caught FloFilz's attention through his work for everybody’s favourite band Khruangbin.
Exposed to music from a young age, FloFilz grew up in Belgium before moving to Aachen, Germany where he studied the violin and classical music, while also playing in orchestras. In addition to his parents, who were both musicians, he cites Hip-Hop icons A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla and Madlib as key influences. Recognised as one of Germany’s most in-demand producers, the self-taught bedroom beatmaker has built his reputation led by his seductive blend of Lo-Fi, Soul and Jazz-influenced groves. Taking great inspiration from London's Jazz scene he has previously collaborated with the likes of MF DOOM, Alfa Mist, Barney Artist, Ivan Ave, Blu, JuJu Rogers, Biig Piig, K.A.A.N., J.Lamotta and K, Le Maestro.
