A Thousand Years "Flying High"
Farmers in Fields of Stars, the new record on the way from London-based producer A Thousand Years, was reportedly inspired by what may be in store for mankind's future, which is apparently ethereal and beautifully made house music. On "Flying High," the producer born Zeké Africa places synthetic steel drums alongside an island-inspired melody made from airy synth pads. These harmonious elements are set to a complex house beat the simultaneously remains warm and breezy throughout. To be sure, the vocal samples seem to foreshadow some sort of vague doom, as they transform from organic utterances to completely digitized croaks by the end of the tune. Look for the rest of A Thousand Years' six-track EP when it drops on October 1 via King Deluxe.
