Flamingosis (the name comes from a free-style Frisbee move that his father invented) is a New Jersey-based electronic music producer and beatboxer. Drawing on influences from other producers such as Flying Lotus and J Dilla as well as vintage funk and disco music, Flamingosis creates engaging and soulful tracks and puts on an infectiously energetic live show.

Tony Simon, a/k/a Blockhead, has been making and releasing utterly distinctive, funky and emotive music for the last two decades. Blockhead grew up in downtown New York City. As the son of an artist, surrounded by visual culture, he early on found that his passion was for music, for the sonic. A fan of a whole range of sounds, especially hip-hop, Blockhead steadily built a tremendous collection of tapes and later CDs from innumerable artists, a quiet accumulation of knowledge and know-how. After a brief stint as a rapper, he realized his calling was behind the boards and not on the mic–and from there he began to produce beats. Since making that decision, he’s kept pretty busy: carving a niche as a sought-after underground beatmaker that people call when they want something special. Blockhead has produced tracks for notable emcees like Aesop Rock, Atmosphere, Murs, Cage, Mike Ladd, Illogic, and many others. He has also released numerous albums on labels like Ninja Tune, Rhymesayers, Future Archive, Young Heavy Souls, and more. Among these include the now classic instrumental albums ‘The Music Scene’ and ‘Music by Cavelight’.
