Folz B. is a music composer and artist from Argentina. His first EP for Folcore Records is entitled “Kiss”, just like his first single.
His songs transport the listener in an imaginary spaceship to very unusual places, around labyrinths that never end, and through mirrors that can either embellish or deform.
His music is highly danceable. The beat is the tour guide that takes the audience through multiple styles –from Latin pop to Brazilian samba, reggaeton, experimental music, hip hop, Afro-Cuban salsa, rock and even folk music from the Middle East.
The artist’s goal is to express his point of view about how the music that would make him dance should sound like. It would be a music that never bores, which doesn’t stop its stream of fresh ideas nor abuses repetition. A music that surprises –not a pre-made formula–, that is fun, original and makes the listener feel an unstoppable urge to dance. All of that combined with several levels of depth in the composition and arrangements.
Folz B. is mainly a keyboard player. He also sings and plays bass and various percussion instruments like Djembe, Congas and Udu. For the four songs of this EP “Kiss”, the artist worked with a wide variety of pianos, organs, synthesizers, samplers and drum machines. There is a meticulous and complex framework of arrangements, yet the final product sounds very nice and fresh to the ear.
