For our latest premiere we’re excited to bring back one of our grooviest recent artists, the unbelievably talented Flamingosis. Last time we saw this man he had just released his exceedingly slick Mood Provider Mixtape. Today, the New Jersey native is making another big splash with the release of “Maniacs!,” the ridiculously fun title single from his upcoming collab mixtape with The Kount.
“Maniacs!” is Flamingosis at his finest. Calling on a big band orchestration, a full horn line, a rock-n-roll guitar, a vocal chorus, and powerful drum kit bust down the door on beat one. Now that we’re awake after that intro, we’re walked into the groove with a punky lead bass line and wavy rhythm guitar. Once the horns and keys enter back in, we take off on a groovy spaceship fueled by a ripping guitar solo. The A1 energy of this track is enough to have anyone strutting down the street feeling like James Brown.
The modern day groove master is taking his legendary live show around the country as well. Flamingosis recently teamed up with Matoma & Two Friends to hit major venues such as the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago and Mission Ballroom in Denver. He will be joining Big Wild for several of his upcoming tour dates, and performing in Phoenix this weekend at the M3F Festival. He’ll also be accompanying the one and only STS9 at the inaugural Hotel Elsewhere event in May in Orlando.
If you’re even remotely close to a Flamingosis show, I would 10/10 recommend attending, but until then stream his latest single, “Maniacs!,” below and be on the look out for the release of the full mixtape next week. Enjoy!
