Flex Webster | Heaven Bound
Written by Sam Dunlay on 10 June 2021
Christchurch DJ and Producer Flex Webster gets funky on his new single ‘Heaven Bound’, featuring Ed Zucollo.
The lead single from his recently released EP, ‘Heaven Bound’ is a captivating release from Flex Webster. Featuring a House-like groove, ‘Heaven Bound’ is a smooth and upbeat track full of flavour.
‘Heaven Bound’ was not a straightforward release for Webster, who explains it initially started as a bootleg remix of a Sharon Jones release. “Heaven Bound actually started as a bootleg remix of a Sharon Jones track” Webster explains. “It came out so well that I wanted to release it, but the problem is, I would never have gotten permission. So, I decided to break it down and create an instrumental version. The key elements were the funky guitar line which I had played by a session musician, and the vocals which Ed Zuccollo replaced with his Moog Synthesiser wizardry.”
The ‘Heaven Bound EP’ comes two years from Webster’s last project ‘Changes’, and features a broad range of electronica. With a mix of influences and styles, the EP is an excellent offering from Webster.
