Listen to a track Flava D produced using field recordings of Lewisham

Introducing Surroundings. 

 For our new series with Shure we follow three artists as they create new music from the sounds of their cities. Featuring Flava D in London, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith in Los Angeles and Honey Dijon in Berlin.

We start off in London where Flava D uses sounds from Lewisham market, vocals from a busker and sounds of the DLR in a high-impact club-ready banger. Watch the full process in the video below.

Using the MV88 microphone and the Shure Plus MOTIV app, she explores her local area – collecting sounds and talking at length about the ways in which the places she’s lived have shaped her musical and creative worldview.

Listen to the full track below. Flava D’s XOYO residency continues until September 2018.
