Though we wouldn’t call it proper jazz, “Mating Dance” by young producer fLako does boast plenty of jazzy drums and other swinging, acoustic elements, like a flute and horns. However, the track actually sounds like it could soundtrack some kind of island-inspired Zelda game, as distant vocals flirt with bright and simple synth tones before the song breaks into a bouncing rhythm surrounded by balmy atmospheres midway through. The song is taken from fLako’s Eclosure EP, which will drop via London label Five Easy Pieces on November 19 with more of the same warm, human elements.
