Down Tempo Exploration
Flow State Summit is more than just physical flow, but an exploration of rhythm, beats and art. One of our amazing artists, Branden Clarke is IG88, and he shares the love. A prolific solo producer and remixer. The primary producer for both the electrosoul goddess Shaprece and midnight hour-dwelling rap group Triceracorn. A performer sharing stages with the likes of Battles, Tycho, SZA and Odesza. Part-time friend to all living creatures.
There’s nature and grit married to hope and longing in the music: expansive, sweeping landscapes painted with syrup synths and found sounds plucked from the air around him. Flow has impacted Clarke, because his work is fully based around flow he says.
He fashions breathy, swamp gas compositions from a warped life and a perspective forced out of a bent smile: beats with broken wind chimes, paper airplanes hitting a wooden door, fine silverware in the hands of a restless drummer. He’s skipping rocks on the ocean on an overcast day. He’s handing you a blanket that’s both wet and warm.
