Izzy Flynn can effortlessly switch up genres as though picking out what shoes to wear. A little bit of jazz, a smear of dark pop, a lick of electronica, a dollop of soul and now garage can be thrown into the mix too. Her debut 'Faith' was one of our favourite EPs last year and now Izzy is back with a bunch of high-concept remixes to make you re-think everything you've heard from her before. The 'Medicine' (Shifty Remix) is deeply atmospheric with a fluid garage sound and spacious soundscape. Glassy vocals float over synthetic pulses and a driving beat. 'Faith' (Hamish Balfour Remix) is a different kettle of fish with haunting electronic intricacies and an ambient feel which leads to a funky groove. However, it's always Izzy's crystal voice that pulls you back again.
Izzy Flynn is inspired by an eclectic range of musicians from Chopin, Lauryn Hill, Frank Ocean and Joni Mitchell to Leonardo Da Vinci. She has trained in jazz and music technology at Leeds College of Music where she now teaches and is also part of the all-star Hip-Hop Big Band Abstract Orchestra who has recorded and toured with Amy Winehouse, Jamiroquai, Submotion Orchestra, Mos Def, De La Soul and Afrika Bambaataa. It's safe to say she has her finger on the pulse of various facets of the music industry and that makes for a very unique and intriguing sound.
