Athletic Soviet disco inspired party-tunes, performed with elaborate visuals and a live work out! What happens when you combine the talents of the razor-sharp Farao and the mischievous Special-K? You get ULTRAFLEX!
The two individually accomplished artists combine their strengths to cross borders, figuratively and literally. Farao coming from Norway and Special-K from Iceland, Farao specialising in sick beats and seductive vocals whilst Special-K is the expert when it comes to lyrics and visual representation. Their conflux results in an interdisciplinary artistic collaboration between two daring minds and their toned, well exercised bodies - topped with sex metaphors, badly disguised as sport descriptions.
Ultraflex's debut album, set to be released on Street Pulse Records in 2020, is the result of an international commissioned piece the duo composed for Extreme Chill & Insomnia Festival 2019. The music can be described as a cocktail of contemporary disco and futuristic boogie, topped with vocal performances inspired by bands such as Easter, Saâda Bonaire and Janet Jackson. When they play live, moving images largely borrowed from 80’s soviet aerobic television programs are projected in the background. Between playing synthesizers, lifting weights and singing, the pair performs exercises in synchronisation with the visuals, oozing flamboyance and jest.
Put your ear to the ground and hear the buzz of the new phenomenon that is Ultraflex!
