George King aka Catching Flies is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ who has been putting in work for a minute now. He put out his first EP, The Stars in 2012 and now he is back with a brand new release titled “Yŭ Part 2.” The track sees him teaming up with 2 hip-hop luminaries, Blu and Jehst, both of who have distinguished works as legends in the game. “Yŭ Part 2” as a record is pretty alluring with its soothing jazz vibes and groove tailor-made to the styles that the emcees’ involved employ. It’s very reflective and once again showcases their strengths as lyricists with profound messages to share with the listeners. Catching Flies also throws in a little easter bunny at the end of the track by sampling his favorite tracks by Blu and Jehst. He adds that sampling Jehst’s “People Under The Weather” and Blu’s “Dancing In The Rain” seemed fitting to pay homage.
Catching Flies is known for his eclectic DJ sets (‘On Deck’ Thump Mix) and 2017 saw him take to the decks far and wide – from Beijing to Mumbai, Singapore to Croatia. He is just as comfortable playing in the club as he is putting together mixes for home-listening, for example, his Solid Steel Radio Mix (Ninja Tune) which was awarded runner up in Best Mix of The Year, and a popular mix for ID Magazine (“one of our all-time favourites”) entitled ‘The Soundtrack To The Film Of Your Imaginary Life.’ He also has a monthly show on super cool London based Radio station Radar Radio.
