FLAMINGOSIS SPLICES TOGETHER OLD SCHOOL SOUL, WILD FUNK, AND D.I.Y. ELECTRONIC WITH A RADIANT MESSAGE MEANT FOR ANY MOMENT. AFTER GENERATING 100 MILLION STREAMS, ATTRACTING 100K CUMULATIVE SOCIAL MEDIA FOLLOWERS, AND RECEIVING ACCLAIM FROM PITCHFORK, MTV, THISSONGISSICK, AND MANY MORE, THE NEW JERSEY-RAISED AND BROOKLYN-BASED ARTIST AND PRODUCER EMBEDS AN IMPORTANT AFFIRMATION WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF HIS NEXT FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, DAYMAKER.

SINCE 2012, HE HAS CARVED OUT A NICHE OF HIS OWN IN ADDITION TO COLLABORATING IN THE STUDIO AND ON STAGE WITH BIG GIGANTIC, GRIZ, MADEON, TOKIMONSTA, AND MATOMA, AMONG OTHERS. NOT TO MENTION, HE GRACED THE BILLS OF FESTIVALS SUCH AS AUSTIN CITY LIMITS, ELECTRIC FOREST, OKEECHOBEE, HOLY SHIP!, AND VOODOO MUSIC + ARTS, TO NAME A FEW. CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOLLOWED WITH PITCHFORK DESCRIBING “BELIEVE IN ME” AS “A NEW SUMMER ANTHEM.” REGARDING 2016’S BRIGHT MOMENTS, MTV WROTE, “THE PRODUCER’S NEW ALBUM WEAVES SMOOTH 1970S AND 1980S SAMPLES INTO PERFECT GROOVES.” IN 2019, HE BEGAN TO WIDEN THE SONIC PALETTE. FOR THE FIRST TIME, HE HIT THE STUDIO WITH COLLABORATORS TO ARCHITECT WHAT WOULD BECOME DAYMAKER. HE WORKED CLOSELY WITH AN ALL-STAR CAST OF MUSICIANS, INCLUDING KEYBOARDIST BORAHM LEE [PRETTY LIGHTS], JEFF FRANCA [THIEVERY CORPORATION], EDDIE ROBERTS [THE NEW MASTERSOUNDS], HUNTER ROBERTS, HIP-HOP FUNK DUO RECESS, MIKE TALLMAN OF FUNK AND ROOTS OUTFIT EUFORQUESTRA AND THE COLOR RED LABEL, AND MORE.

About


Blockhead

The internationally renowned NYC producer Tony Simon, aka BLOCKHEAD, has released 10 albums over the past 15 years, including four acclaimed records for Ninja Tune and numerous production jobs including notable works with Aesop Rock. He is regarded as one of the modern masters of instrumental hip-hop, and the forthcoming new album sees him return to record-label-released music with the bold and exciting roster at Future Archive Recordings (co-founded by artists Arms and Sleepers, Sun Glitters, Little People and CNJR, and also co-run by Mark McGlinchey).

BUBBLE BATH, out Nov. 08, 2019 on Future Archive Recordings, is a record born out of meditative expression and ongoing personal creative challenge, key for a producer of BLOCKHEAD’s experience. Carried forward are the incredible hook and sample placement skills of classic works such as Uncle Tony’s Coloring Book and Music By Cavelight, but what has emerged is an overwhelming sense of natural musicality and sophistication.

“I want the music I make to be unaffected by outside influences. I like the idea of working in a bubble… …When I have to describe what I do, to someone, it’s always a little awkward because it starts as “I’m a musician” and as questions come back it gets broken down. “No, I don’t play any instruments” “No, I’m not trained in musical theory” “I make beats”. When it comes down to it, everything I do has always been guided by my ears and sensibility.”

New LP opening track and lead single On The Bright Side is a stunning, woozy and dreamlike slab of instrumental hip-hop. This first song galvanises BLOCKHEAD’s ethos toward instrumental music: “The reason I never got into instrumental music is because I find it monotonous. My goal has been to avoid that. It’s hard to attach truly personal things to instrumental music because, generally, those feelings are expressed in words. So, I have to kinda put forth moods and leave the rest up to the listener.”

New album pre-orders (2xLP/CD/Cassette/Bundles) are available at https://futurearchiverecordings.com/blockhead-bubble-bath.
