Shimmer (Grey Marble Vinyl)

The record arrives as a result of O’Flynn and Frazer Ray’s (FKA Soundbwoy Killah) love for the UK dance music scene, from speed garage to breaks and hardcore, their vast knowledge and respect for underground cultures and genres shine through as a direct influence.

Artist: O’Flynn and Frazer Ray

Genre: Electronica

Label: Ninja Tune

Release date:


Overall it’s a heartfelt and nostalgic homage to iconic UK nightclubs and the escapism they provide, even during their absence throughout the pandemic - “making music for those spaces during lockdown was a form of escapism for us - kind of like playing a video game or reading a book, we just wanted to be transported to another place”.

Escapism lies at the core of ‘Shimmer’. Channelling euphoric, big-room club energy, the record see’s both producers explore new musical territories, escaping their usual sonic spheres to experiment with new genres and techniques whilst still nodding to the past. “We wanted the album to be a fusion of musical styles. A big mixing-pot of all our favourite genres” Frazer comments.

The collaboration came about naturally after an admiration of each other's music. “I was digging for samples one day at Sounds of the Universe and the store suddenly played this big breaksy dance tune with a Reese bass. I bought the record there and then and started to play it in my sets” O’Flynn remembers. “One of my friends heard me play it once and said ‘you know I used to live with this guy’ - I couldn’t believe it because I imagined whoever made that record would have been about 50 years old and living through the rave era. Anyway it was Frazer’s record under his Soundbwoy Killah alias and so we connected online and started sharing music”.
