Flamingosis Unveils New Single “ANIME ELEGY” Released on April 11 with Visualizer by Vinyl Creative Co.








FLAMINGOSIS, the creative project of Aaron Velasquez – a New Jersey-raised and Brooklyn-based artist and producer known for fusing soul, funk, jazz, hip-hop, and electronic – has released a new single from Better Will Come, his upcoming studio album due out May 10. “Anime Elegy” released on April 11, accompanied by a visualizer from Vinyl Creative Co.

Listen to “Anime Elegy” here:


There are a handful of Japanese animated shows where there’s a main protagonist with an extremely tragic backstory,” says Aaron. “They carry with them a deep sadness, a melancholic solitude of sorts. Yet even though they have all the reason to give up and crumble, they choose not to.

They rather choose to keep on keeping on and help others. That takes tremendous compassion, kindness and strength. So if the melancholic anime dude with an unimaginable painful past can persevere, so can you.”

“Anime Elegy” along with recent singles Nebula Gazer” and “Feel Yourself” featuring viral content creator Marc Rebillet appear on Better Will Come, Flamingosis’ sixth studio album set for release May 10 on his own label Kahuna Style. Extending a creative arc without comparison, Flamingosis strikes a deep emotional chord on Better Will Come.

Handcrafted electronic beats, meet live instrumentation, spiked with funk in the center of the dancefloor (right underneath the disco ball). The ensuing overflow of energy might just inspire you to get up and move, fall in love, or even change your life.

In support of the new music, Flamingosis will hit the road with a full band for the very first time. The Better Will Come Tour kicks off May 17 with a run of west coast dates including stops in Los AngelesSan DiegoSan FranciscoSacramentoPortland and Seattle, among others.

Flamingosis (the name comes from a free-style Frisbee move that his father invented) is a New Jersey-raised, Brooklyn-based artist and producer. Creatively blending old school soul, vintage funk, disco and handcrafted electronic beats, Flamingosis creates engaging and soulful tracks and puts on an infectiously energetic live show.

Critical acclaim has followed with Pitchfork describing Bright Moments’ “Believe In Me” as “a new summer anthem” and MTV adding, “the producer’s new album weaves smooth 1970s and 1980s samples into perfect grooves.”

Of DaymakerThisSongIsSick raved, “This is the perfect album to rinse outside by the pool, at the park, in your backyard, or wherever you have a space to move around,” and EARMILK christened it “an electronic journey through time and space.”

Along the way, he’s teamed up with everyone from Big Gigantic, GRiZ and Tokimonsta to Matoma for collaborations. Simultaneously, he notably shined at festivals, including Austin City Limits, Electric Forest, Okeechobee, Holy Ship!, Voodoo Music + Arts, and more.
