Cosmo Curtis With the slow drip feed of tracks and short EPs over the years, CF never stops making delicate, intricate, and pulsing environments to live in. Another great track! Favorite track: Satisfied (Main).

about

September 2018 saw the welcome return of the London artist with ‘New Gods,’ a collaboration with two of London’s brightest stars: Jay Prince and Oscar Jerome. ‘New Gods’ was selected by The Guardian as one of their ‘Hot Tracks,’ and premiered on Complex (“With fans in just about every pocket of UK music, Catching Flies is no doubt a name we'll all be very familiar with in the coming months.”) It was included in various ‘Best of the Week’ playlists across the board from iD Mag, Dummy, Clash, Notion, Apple Music and Amazon Music. ‘New Gods’ also received multiple radio plays from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson (“Yep! Killer”), Nemone, and Jamz Supernova (BBC1xtra).

His forthcoming single ‘Satisfied’ is a slice of sophisticated dance music that nails the sweet spot between headphones and dancefloor. It sees Catching Flies focusing his attention on the dancefloor for the first time with stunning results – ‘Satisfied’ is highly textured, deeply melodic and effortlessly marries live instrumentation (guitars, harps, a string quartet…) with warm electronics. To a casual listener, its house pulse and lavish keyboard layering might sound familiar – the kind of thing you recognise from the likes of George Fitzgerald or Caribou. But with ‘Satisfied’, the structuring is unique, the way it draws you through narratives, leading you in and out of its androgynous sampled vocal loops nothing short of magical. And as with “New Gods”, texture is everything: meticulous production manipulations make surfaces glitter, crackle and crunch in a way that constantly calls into question what is electronic and what is ‘real.’

The single consists of a three-track package, including a more immediate Edit and an ‘Ambient Reprise’ which serves as a hazy recollection of the night before. As Catching Flies explains: ‘the tune has so many different layers and tracks (186 to be precise!) and went through various different versions over time… so I wanted to celebrate that.’
