Since his spirited, percussive debut in 2015, O’Flynn has been going from strength to strength. After early releases on Blip Discs garnered support from influential selectors across the board (Four Tet, Gilles Peterson, James Blake) the producer signed to Ninja Tune in 2017, releasing ‘Pluto’s Beating Heart‘ in September.
O’Flynn’s sound hasn’t stopped progressing since his first release, ‘Tyrion / Desmond’s Empire’, an infectious club-ready mover fashioned from world-music samples. Moving from smooth, jazz-inflected vibes (‘Spyglass’) to ecstatic funk and most recently, into acid house territory, the common thread uniting his productions is his exceptional ability to take eclectic samples and craft them into ecstatic music that makes you want to move.
If you’re as impressed by his productions as we are, you may want to check out our latest Hyp mix from the man himself. Alternating between subtle grooves and introspective ambience, it’s an atmospheric cruise through cuts from Burial, Four Tet, Youandewan, HNNY, FaltyDL, Nathan Fake and more.
