Flora FM is a project from Taylor Hawkins, rooted in strong and emotive melodies, lush ambiance, and playful rhythms - drawing from dusty rave records, the lush greenery of the Pacific Northwest, and the quick-mix DJ styles of the Midwest.
Like changing the channel, changes in one's life can suddenly bring about a new perspective. After moving from Detroit to Seattle, producer Taylor Hawkins suddenly found himself on Flora FM. Previously recording as Community Corporation, this fresh beginning in Emerald City brought new sounds into Hawkins' repertoire. Where he was once surrounded by cheap boogie and disco records in Detroit, Seattle's used bins were full of UK imports, early 90s ambient techno records and the IDM that followed. These new influences injected judicious breakbeats and top notch electro sensibilities into his already adventurous Midwest techno aesthetic.
