Bio

Flamingo Jones is Melbourne Calypsonian, crafting beats from the palette of mother nature. His unique style packs the tropicalia of the West Indies into the floral magnificence of the Melbourne CBD.

"You feel like you are skinny dipping in a jungle lagoon at night, while the nocturnal creatures' eyes light up all around you in the trees and bushes" - Acid Stag

"With so much serious, contemplative music being produced, Flamingo Jones' carefree take on the pop genre should be applauded" - Indieshuffle

You're becoming more realized on every record you release. Love the dynamics across the track which build toward that (I'm with Gemma here) Animal Collective explosion. This is real tasty.
