Catching Flies - Yŭ


It’s difficult to have a favorite moment from Catching Flies latest track, “Yŭ.” From the hypnotic vocal samples that softly open the song, to the melody lead and hypnotic percussion, “Yŭ” is a gem of a song.

The overall atmosphere is laid back, relaxed but also filled with details in every moment that make me stand back and appreciate the impressive techniques Catching Flies utilized to create such a beauty.

Currently working on his debut full length album, Catching Flies blends jazz, hip-hop and electronic to create a truly original and refreshing sound. The forthcoming single brings together low-slung hip-hop beats and jazz-infused electronica – a must-listen for fans of Tom Misch, Bonobo, and Four Tet. ‘Yu’ means Rain in Chinese, and initial idea for the track was made in the mountains of China after touring Asia in late 2018.
