The Needle Drop

Flamboyant is a distillment of what has made bubblegum bass so interesting over the past few years, as well as an apt commentary on gender politics.

In recent years the bubblegum bass, PC Music's electropop is expanding with artists like Charli XCX, SOPHIE, Poppy, Hannah Diamond or 100 gecs.

Fav Tracks: Flamboyant, Career Boy, Mr. To You, Man To Man, Musical Genius, Emasculate, Guyliner
