Manners McDade has signed an exclusive publishing and agency deal with London-based multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ, Catching Flies
George King is a London-based multi-instrumentalist who began Catching Flies in 2012 with the successful self-release of his EP ‘The Stars’. The EP’s lead track hit the coveted #1 spot on ‘The Hype Machine’.
His work is described as blurring the boundary between mainstream and underground, using a variety of techniques such as vocal sampling and layered textures to create melodically-driven and immersive sound-worlds. This year he released his debut album ‘Silver Linings’, described by CLASH as ‘dreamy… atmospheric’ and; ‘light, airy, and wistful, and draws from a wide-ranging palette of influences (jazz, soul, hip-hop, house and electronica) that give much of the album its breadth’.
His track, ‘New Gods’, released September 2018 in collaboration with London’s Jay Prince and Oscar Jerome, was selected by The Guardian as one of their ‘Hot Tracks’ and premiered on Complex. He also featured in various ‘Best of the Week’ playlists from iD Mag, Dummy, Clash, Notion, Apple Music and Amazon Music and received multiple radio plays from the likes of BBC 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson, Nemone and Jamz Supernova. In November of the same year, ‘Satisfied’ was released alongside a short film about Catching Flies and his creative process, shot on 16mm film. It was premiered on Nowness and received their pick of the day. His music has been used on advertisements such as Google and Miller Beer as well as the Channel 4 drama ‘Born to Kill’.
Catching Flies also performs live and DJs across the world, having previously toured with Bonobo, featuring on Bonobo’s BBC Radio One Essential Mix. He has also toured solo performing both live and DJ sets throughout the UK, Europe and Asia, concluding with a sold-out performance with Submotion Orchestra at the Barbican. He has also appeared on bills alongside the likes of Jon Hopkins, Little Dragon, George Fitzgerald, Actress and many more.
Catching Flies will play at Pickle Factory, London, on 16th October.view more - CreativeManners McDade, Wed, 18 Sep 2019 12:46:55 GMT
