Flinch’s trademark is hot ‘n’ heavy bass music. Whether he’s drawing from dubstep, house, indie rock, or jungle, his tracks are always melodic, hard-hitting, and full of the sickest bass, money can’t buy. Flinch’s sound is also informed by a youth listening to Pavement, Fugazi, and TKTK; whether it’s original songs or fat beats, Flinch tracks pair careful grit and distortion with catchy songwriting and surprising twists and turns.
You may just be hearing the buzz now, but Adam “Flinch” Glassco is no newcomer to dance music; he started producing in 2000, and quickly established a name for himself in the Los Angeles drum & bass scene with a series of knife-sharp techstep stormers. With serious production chops under his belt, he decided to explore other musical influences a few years ago, collaborating with a number of producers and vocalists from across the dance spectrum. Notable among these projects are his indie electro group True Pseudo (alongside TKTK and Whiskey Pete) and his work with Los Angeles dubstep don 12th Planet: the duo have delivered massive remixes of Little Jinder’s “Youth Blood” (Trouble & Bass) and Dave Nada’s “Apocalypse Theme” (T&A) that have charted from BBC Radio 1 to Rinse FM to Beatport.
Flinch’s badman tunes have also been championed by huge names across the spectrum of dance music, including Busy P, Drop the Lime, Kissy Sell Out, AC Slater, Designer Drugs, Skream, and Plastician. More exciting releases are on their way this summer, including a remix for house legend DJ Sneak forthcoming on Scion A/V) and a fresh crop of original music on cutting-edge labels Trouble & Bass, SMOG, Party Like Us, and Play Me.
