Felony Flats

This kid sure knows how to get the booties shaking. The hipster crowd’s all favorite Felony Flats is the new breed of the Eastern European ground, raised on a multiplicity of music genres, from black metal to nu rave to glitched dubstep of contemporaries such as Hudson Mohawke, Dorian Concept, Joker, Rustie and the like.

Felony finds in hip hop that common thread that keeps his diverse influences glued together, switching effortlessly from obscure germs to mainfloor anthems in perfect unison. If only he would make more of his own tunes!
