We say

At the start of last month, we introduced you to Amsterdam-based, Afghan artist and producer Ferdous. The founding member of R&B duo Klyne delivered a mesmerising, pulsing and fluid electronic soundcape in ‘Mountain Snow’. Last week, he followed up on the single with the release of his new audio-visual EP, ‘Dreamland’, made in collaboration with 3D art director Niko Zelenik. Featuring this euphoric dose of clubby, soulful electronic, the EP is a melting pot of ideas, inspired by his time DJing in Amsterdam. His music has been praised by Billboard, Clash, The Line Of Best Fit, Colors, The Independent, Notion and Dummy, along with support at BBC Radio 1Xtra and Spotify. He recently played a successful sold-out release party at MakeOut Music in LA and is currently working on live dates for Europe.
