Seattle-based Pacific elites The Flavr Blue share their new remix video for “Top Down” featuring The Last Artful, Dodgr with Hip Hop DX. Filmed in Portland and directed by Ikaika Cofer / Tiki, the song comes off their recently released sophomore album Blue Dream which earned praise from the likes of Billboard, Complex, The Seattle Times, and more.
The band comments, “We got to perform with Dodgr at last year’s Upstream Music Festival in Seattle and were totally blown away by her, so it was an honor that she asked us to get on Top Down. When we were finalizing the album, we decided it’d only be right for her to be featured on the LP beyond a one-off remix since she adds such a dope vibe to the record overall.”
Blue Dream is a 14-track collection fronted by Grammy-nominated Hollis Wong Wear while producers/vocalists Lace Cadence and Parker Joe triangulate between pulsing electronic pop, chilled out R&B, and melodic hip-hop. Much like its namesake, the album provides a relaxing high and a subtly invigorating rush, highlighted by punchy electronics and rooftop-ready West Coast hip-hop. The result is has arguably been considered their most compelling and artistically honest work to date.
