Bubblin': The Blessings
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who: The Blessings
Where: Glasgow, Scotland
While Mike Slott and Hudson Mohawke are the biggest names to come out of Glasgow's LuckyMe collective, Dominic Flannigan (a.k.a. Dom Sum) and Martyn Flyn (a.k.a. Fine Art) are the guys who quietly built the label behind the scenes, putting their own music-making on the back burner. That's about to change: Operating as The Blessings, the genre-busting duo recently released the Galaxy High EP on the similarly open-minded Nod Navigators imprint. Combining low-end blap and R&B bounce with spacey futurism, and touching on a number of points in between, The Blessings won't be known as "the other guys from LuckyMe" for long.
