Russian producer and DJ Fløa paid Monstercat a visit to release his fresh EP, In My Hands. This is shortly following his last Monstercat appearance, which brought forth his EP Running Faster. In My Hands is the perfect listen for those in need of some self-affirming encouragement. Inspired by his own life-changing decisions, Fløa created the title track with the goal to convey that everything is in our hands; the successes and failures, the ups and downs.
The four-track EP features two tracks with extended mixes, and highlights this artist’s expertise in deep, melodic music. Fløa’s ability to transmit heavy emotions through his sound sets him apart from the crowd. Each EP released by this artist draws a unique story, and In My Hands brings us to a new era. Reuniting with fellow producer Ra5im for “Overthinking,” Fløa draws on cultural influences, blending the soft sounds from the kurai flute with the deep basses and bright synths. With gentle upbeat energy and warm atmospheric sounds, the EP showcases the talented artist’s poignant melodic house stylings. This song delivers a strong message, and Fløa shares, “Do not think too much; everything is in your hands.”
Fløa has come a long way since his first appearance on Monstercat in 2020. By the end of 2021, his Spotify Wrapped showed a following of over 158,000 listeners across 142 countries. Many of his hits were collaborative efforts, and we’ve seen him work with artists like Lovlee and Seawayz. This rising artist has gained support from DJs and producers all across the globe, who recognize passion when they see it. Fløa was a notable contender to the progressive house scene in 2021, and we can’t wait to see where he goes from here.
