Album Review: UK producer Positive Flow shares FLOW LINES, Tokyo Dawn debut

Positive Flow, Flow Lines (2012/Tokyo Dawn Records)

UK based musician and producer Positive Flow released his latest LP Flow Lines in November of last year, his first for Tokyo Dawn Records. Dropping six years after 2006’s Positivity, this album is a “rich tapestry” of future soul and nu-jazz, with elements of funk and electronica as well. Featuring guest vocalists like British soulster Omar, to Cinematic Orchestra’s Heidi Vogel, to artists like Vanessa Freeman, Stacy Epps, Colonel Red and more, one can enjoy organic beats, smooth blends and an array of musical influences. Jesse Reuben Wilson is the multi-instrumentalist behind Positive Flow.

About ND McCray

Living in St. Louis, Missouri, since 2014, I created Unclouded By Ambition in my hometown of Houston, Texas, in 2007. It was a way for me to write about all the books, music, movies, art and photography I was consuming. I worked at a bookstore at the time, but over these last eight years as a writer, I've interviewed some of the most talented singers, songwriters, DJs, musicians and filmmakers. I've traveled a lot too and written for a variety of publications. I also adopted the sweetest dachshund mix; his name is Nickolas Nelson, named for one of my favorite musicians, Prince Rogers Nelson. So poke around and learn about a few things!
