'Select' by Flyt

In 2017, 'Embers' marked the welcome return of North London duo Flyt following a nine year absence after their 'Soul Mentality' debut.  Flyt's skill in marrying Mary Mycroft's exquisite and dreamy vocals with Josh Mycroft's beautifully lush soundscape led to the same excitement in 2017 as it did in 2008.

Now releasing music through their own Space Between Records, Flyt have released 'Select' - an exciting compilation of EPs and singles released between 2017-2019 boasting some excellent bonus material as well.

'Select' serves as an exemplary project to display Flyt's unique chillout, nu-soul and R&B aesthetic with highlights including 'Call My Name', 'Anything, Everything' and 'Freefalling' amongst others.  The album concludes with two guest remixes as US remixer/producer Kebomusic revisits the disco-lite 'Can't Come Down' smoothly reimagining it with a more contemporary R&B/club approach, while 'Shadows' is tackled by the incredible Soul Sound Collective whose own versatile styles of incorporating 70s jazz-funk and effervescent soul receives a makeover in its own right with a house-tinged perspective of the track.

Mary Mycroft's ethereal voice continues to sound tailor-made for Josh's sublime production making their ever-expanding discography an ongoing pleasure.
