TUNE HLFMN - TeLLuRiKA
HLFMN continue his sonic exploration driving an innovative and personal research to the Urban Music world, picking up elements from a wide range of underground cultural influences and revisiting them with his personal ability to create something new and very recognizable.
HLFMN new album called "FiRE" can't be really labelled in a specific genre due to his urge to tell diverse stories and mixed emotions, that lead him to choose a different style to each song, from classic Hip Hop to Grime Rap, passing through Trip-Hop, Uk-Garage, IDM and Future Bass where, unlike previous works, often appear MC’s verses and rhymes, properly altered to sound childish or alien; his passion for traditional and exotic music has remained intact, as you can hear all along this new LP, with a state-of-the-art sampling of tibetan, indonesian and japanese typical instruments.
"My main goal has always been to mix old traditional instruments with the current electronic music trends, to create a different and personal Dance music style; to build this album i've sampled different instruments like bamboo-based gamelan rindik and jegog, plucked instruments like greek lyre and kora and african/arabic percussions . I like to instill a ritualistic vibration in each composition to create an energetic yet meditative mood in the listener, a sacred conversation between present and past."
