Full Circle has been four years in the making… a mosaic of beats, synths, jazz & classical soundscapes, combined with field recordings and plenty of his own instrumentation, such as piano, guitar, harp, flute, percussion, claps, and his voice. He was inspired by the sounds of the city as well as by nature, crafting it all as a seamless whole, and we here at King Deluxe are very pleased to share this new album from Dutch musician Bastiaan van der Vlist, aka Beatsofreen.
This follows on the heels of his acclaimed Dimensions EP, out on Darker Than Wax earlier in 2015, for whom he has another in the works. Also look out for his alter ego Stan Forebee.
