Franco-British artist Flox returns with his fifth album Homegrown, a ten track reggae album with influences from rock and electronic music.
This is my first encounter with this singer and musician and he certainly has his own brand of sound. It’s sparse with wobbling and sometimes distorted bass lines and very prominent and razor-sharp synthesizers, especially on album opener So Many Blisters, which carries a slice of rock excitement in the middle, the futuristic title track and the remarkable instrumental Cut It.
Homegrown is out of the box kind of reggae. Experimental and exciting.
