Mr. Wright announces his newest EP, ‘Flütz’, which drops on Beatport on November 30. This will be the second EP Mr. Wright has released, following his first EP 'Tricks' that was released last year by way of Funktrap Records. Unlike ‘Tricks’ which consisted of various remixes of the title track, the new EP presents three new, original songs that each convey a completely different vibe – as the EP progresses, the songs transcend from soft and smooth to a darker tone to a trendy dancefloor groove.
Mr. Wright’s three-song EP starts with the title track “Flütz” which offers a light, airy intro that floats over two solid percussion lines. The song evokes magical, whimsical vibes but with a kick. The beginning harp-like instrumentals trickle over a subtle underlying bass that serves as the song’s foundation and a second top beat which drives the lighter instrumentals forward. “Flütz” brings a unique spin on instrumentals, allowing the flute to be the stand-out sound, instead of the usual piano or bass-heavy sound that often characterizes house music. The light instrumentals and denser, head-nodding beats perfectly complement each other to create “Flütz” as this fluid, ethereal track.
The second song, “Live Illegal” takes on a completely different direction than the title track. Mr. Wright teamed up with Detroit-based producer 3Peatonthebeat to create an ominous, eery and almost a little freaky sound. “Live Illegal” lives up to its name – it’s a tune that sounds a little bit dangerous with an edgy, darker feel than “Flütz”.
The third and last track “Lookin Phat” takes a turn into slightly moodier territory – leading with a punchy beat and slick, deep vocals. It’s a club pleaser for the dancefloor and lends a different energy to the EP in which a blend of snares, kick-drums, bass and staccato synths make the song’s overlapping beats bounce. It’s a song to groove to and gives a cooler, cocky vibe than the lighter first track. With each song, the EP evolves from light and ethereal, to a dark, moody tone and finishes with a cool club ready tune.
Mr. Wright, fully known as Wayne Wright, is a DJ and producer from Washington, DC who recently relocated to San Diego, CA.
