Pocustone

Pocustone

This is debut album by Floex released in 2001 on Quazi Delict Records.

Pocustone goes on a kind of risky journey bridging relatively isolated islands such as electronica, jazz or modern contemporary music. This may stand as quite a wild scheme yet this combination works and comunicates to a listener. An unusual sound results in a very delicate instrumentation combining digital technology with the charm of wood instruments. A weird clarinet album or semi-acoustic downtempo? FLOEX explains: „Electronic doesn ́t mean to me just an instrumental, sonic aspect - it is foremost about the aproach of an artist. The way I work and think of wood instruments proceeds in a sort of electronic concept. As for the clarinet - I played it through my childhood so this is quite a natural return to it. There is also some kid stuff like the chime, harmonica or wooden blocks which I found at my cottage-loft last summer.“ We should also mention guest artists appearing on the album - vocalist Ridina Ahmed, Petr Tichý on double bass, flautist Pavla Palánová and Radek Bureš playing drums. The songs have been rising at FLOEX ́s home Mush Room studio for almost three years and FLOEX is also the author of the album cover artwork.
