Flatfoot Sam has been immersed in the intricacies of music production since becoming interested in the industry at the age of 18. His admiration for dance music has trumped all other genres the stage has to offer. Flatfoot Sam has always been captivated by the beauty and emotion conveyed by the art of electronic dance music.
Fast forward to the start of the first lockdown in 2020, Sam with flat feet managed to harness his creative abilities to use his abundant time with 3 main tools, Ableton Live, Guinness and a few compositions. Thus, the creation of Travel field was born, a fusion of Leftfield and Triphop that incorporates speaker separation rhythms associated with the juxtaposed serenity and underlying calm of nature.
Travel field is a merger somewhere between Leftfield and Trip Hop and brings genres into the 2020s. Whether the tunes are uplifting or darker, they have an edge that ensures they’re not “commercial.” Usually, there are soft and warm subbases, breakbeats, and multi-layered sounds so that you can listen to them a number of times and keep hearing new things.
With 15 essential titles to listen to including hits like ‘Try’, ‘Helch’, ‘To stutter‘,’Ven a Bailar ‘, and ‘Belief’ to name a few, each single serves its own purpose, to evoke powerful emotions.
The main characteristics of Travel field contain exhilarating beats and subby basslines in the 80-110bpm range, where you have to listen to it to understand the genre-changing abilities that set it apart as a unique genre in its own right. There is generally an ethereal nature to the tracks but faced with more clubbier sounds harder to face but compliment. You can usually find a good 303 acid line somewhere too.
Travel field was born from the hands of Sam with flat feet, and throughout his career as an artist, he has worked tirelessly to ensure that every song he creates offers a raw and deep connection to each of his listeners. With a sound like no other, Sam with flat feet continues to demonstrate his raw understanding and propensity for producing powerful and haunting electronic music.
