Young Ben Lidsky, from the heart of it all in Denver, CO brings a new EP to the vaunted Gravitas Recordings label. The Flourish EP is five tracks of electro-soul, glitch-hop, and chillout beats with a thread of solid grooves and retro melodies tying it all together.

"Celestial Groove" sets the tone with easy bass and throwback samples. The liquid cool "Alone At Last" and "Place In My Head" are mature beyond Lidsky's 17 years, with a wild stew of different styles blending in triumphant runs. The bass is there in this collection of tunes, but it doesn't bash you over the head. The subtlety in this series is impressive.

Grab this as a free download, or click the Bandcamp link to snag it from our pals at Gravitas. The Texas-based glitch provider knows talent when it hears it, and Lidsky is no exception.
