Catching Flies – aka multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ George King – is the very model of a modern musician. He blurs the boundaries between mainstream and underground, and between electronic and “real” music as easily as the biggest and the best. His music is a bass heavy yet melodic mesh of broody electronics and intricate rhythms, containing shades of everything from hip-hop to house, from soul to jazz. He has received radio support from the likes of Giles Peterson, Annie Mac, Lauren Laverne & Huw Stephens and press support from the likes of ID Magazine, Clash, The Line of Best Fit.
Catching Flies’ debut album ‘Silver Linings’ was released in July 2019. It was hailed as ‘a soundtrack to Summertime’ by The 405 – and was awarded album of the month by Future Music who described it as ‘a brilliantly eclectic record… a moving journey that will last long in the memory.’ Clash Magazine praised the LP’s ‘killer beats’ and ‘artfully orchestrated introspection,’ whilst London In Stereo praised its ‘exceptional production.’ Other press coverage for the album included The Guardian, Complex, Nowness, Dazed & Confused and more. Artist support for ‘Silver Linings’ has come from the likes of Bonobo, Jungle (BBC Radio One Residency), George Fitzgerald and Lane 8.
