O’Flynn + Frazer Ray
O’Flynn and Frazer Ray team up to release new single “Satyr”. The release marks an exciting collaboration between two much-celebrated UK producers and DJ’s – the result is a slick, shimmering dance anthem, fit for clubs and summer festivals alike. Speaking on the release the pair commented that “Satyr started as a super-stripped, dark 2-step garage track. It then went on to have about 3 completely different versions before we settled on the final mix that you can hear today” the pair comment, “it was written in the midst of a rare UK heatwave, when we spent our time reconnecting with friends, congregating at various local pubs and parks. Simple pleasures you indulge in when you get that blissful feeling of London in the sun”
O’Flynn and Frazer Ray’s (FKA Soundbwoy Killah) collaboration came about naturally after an admiration of each other’s music. “I was digging for samples one day at Sounds of the Universe and the store suddenly played this big breaksy dance tune with a Reese bass. I bought the record there and then and started to play it in my sets” O’Flynn remembers. “One of my friends heard me play it once and said ‘you know I used to live with this guy’ – I couldn’t believe it because I imagined whoever made that record would have been about 50 years old and living through the rave era. Anyway it was Frazer’s record under his Soundbwoy Killah alias and so we connected online and started sharing music”.
O’Flynn has become a household name within the UK electronic dance scene over the past few years and has garnered support from the likes of Four Tet, Ben UFO, Gilles Peterson and Bonobo whom he collaborated with on ‘Fragments’ album track “Otomo”. He released his critically acclaimed debut album ‘Aletheia’ in 2019 for which he embarked on an 18 date UK tour and led to The Guardian citing him as their ‘One to watch’. Frazer Ray also released his debut album ‘Halcyon Daze’ (as Soundbwoy Killah) in 2019 which quickly sold out on vinyl.
The pair have many tour dates on the horizon with O’Flynn playing a special residency at London’s Phonox every Friday in July with Frazer Ray to join him on the 15th. Additional dates for O’Flynn include various Warehouse Project shows, the first being the sold-out Return To The Depot with Disclosure and embarking on a US tour supporting Bonobo this Autumn.
