After « Kasblanka » and « Hypnotic », the multi tasks producer and member of La Fine Equipe, Blanka is back with « FLARES »: a Lo-Fi anthem and testimony of a true love for the origins of Hip Hop and sampling, lead by a strong acoustic dominant.
Born in Marseille in 1982, Blanka is a member of the beat makers crew La Fine Equipe and founder of the mastering studio Kasablanka Mastering.
From 2004 to 2011, he had several activities as a director at TSF Jazz radio, a beatmaker and with the development of his studio where he mixed and mastered over 500 records (Onra, ChineseMan, Kool Keith, Guts, Wax Tailor, Fakear…).
He also produced and arranged numerous tracks and albums for artistes such as Hippocampe Fou, Phases Cachées, Cheeko, Sara Lugo or Gaël Faye.
When he’s not working in the shadow, Blanka multiplies the releases with his crew La Fine Equipe and especially the infamous trilogy of « La Boulangerie » but also with his duo Jukebox Champions and as a solo artist with « Kasablanka », « Hypnotic » and « FLARES », his last projet.
Love story built and consume through meetings and places, « FLARES » opens a door on a unique universe where jazz and hip hop meet to give birth to those 14 tracks and as many pieces of dreams.
If Blanka remains the only master on « FLARES », he also invites long time partners to bring their magic on the machines (Oogo from La Fine Equipe) and behind the mic (Sara Lugo, FP from ASM, Rose Kid).
