Biography

Flying White Dots is a guy called Bryan who has some sixteen years DJing experience and started to make bootleg mashups in 2005. After being taught a few tricks by Eric Kleptone, Flying White Dots started to experiment in 2006 with mixing MOR vocals with psychedelic music of various forms. Six months later, the finished article, an album called Staring At The Sky, was released and created a massive buzz in the underground scene. With such unlikely combinations such as Carole King with the Flaming Lips and Nathan Fake with the Rolling Stones and lots of sound effects to boot, this was something entirely different from anything else that was happening at the time.

Having made Eddy Temple Morris’s Bombs of the Year in 2006, 2007 saw Bryan get his first airplay on Radio One, thanks to Rob da Bank, who later described Flying White Dots as his favourite bootleg mashup type band. The follow up album Into The Great Unknown followed in October that year and it was agreed by many that this was better than the first one, with much attention given to Walking On Clouds, a recreation of the Orb’s Little Fluffy Clouds, and Your Poetry, a track that blended the vocal of Elton John’s Your Song over a beautiful downtempo track by Squarepusher.

2008 saw Flying White Dots warm up for the Orb with a spectacular audio visual extravaganza and this was followed later in the year with 3D, the third album, which was darker, deeper and more textured than the previous two. This was followed in 2009 with CMYK, probably the happiest album he had made to date.
