The vocals are soulful and with lyrics like: "I’m free, I’m beautiful, I’m chic" you can’t help but feel optimistic.

XKollective's Electric Flowers is a surprisingly good and unexpected range of funky and mesmerizing tracks that can work as a daily soundtrack-- whether you're at home relaxing or out on the town.
Evolution of Media

This is the perfect soundtrack to the pulse of the city of London, borrowing and remashing (Ableton and Pro Tools) breaks, tablas performances, hypnotic loops, dubby bass lines and delays and both male and female spoken word and sung vocals, ranging in style from the drum'n'bass-type MCing and urban cityscape hip hop to soulful black singing. This is a great example of global downtempo music with organic sounds over a bed of relaxing programmed music: positive-thinking, happy, relaxing and at times funky!
