It's been a week since the album release & I've really just been taking in all the love & analyzing what we did right & what we can work on better for the next projects. Not just music but everything from film to ideas that advance our community.
The response has been overwhelming & it's nice to see that some things I KNEW would work actually worked.
Now it's about getting the message out to a larger group of people that think like us. We share these same thoughts & struggles but at some point the idea became to not embrace that if we fall off the shelf we will break but we can also be put back together.
When you create something, you always want it to be IT you know? As musicians we think every project or song can be IT. Every artist may hope their new painting is IT, the one that will get them in a gallery or sell for twice the price. Or maybe when you meet someone new & it feels so organic & with all the hope & heartache of the past, you hope that this person may be IT.
The truth is that we will never know until the moment passes & we look back & realize it wasn't it. Or maybe it was but we spent so much time comparing it to something else that the magic wore off. I'm trying not to do that from here on out. I want to BE right here & let the chips fall where they may. This isn't to say I'm not ambitious & I don't want things, but letting them flow is how life has gotten much better for me over this past year so I'm going with it.
I wrote an article about leaving Macon recently & I've…Continue
(Floco & Thomas Young at Star Motel Studios)
“What did you do different in this album,” I asked. Floco laughs and said, “I didn’t make any weird ‘ha ha, you know it’s about you even though I didn’t say it’s about you’ jokes.” He definitely didn’t in “Circles and Spaces,” a song that chronicles, to a biographer’s envy, how precisely Macon came to have Floco Torres in our lives.
Angel Collins is writer/blogger out of Macon Ga & she reviewed the new album on her site yesterday. Click the photo to check it out!
Here it is folks! New album from Floco Torres & Infinite Quest: "Childhood Summers, Celebrity Dreams" also known as CSCD2!

Enjoy & let us know what you think!!
I sat down (via phone & email) with my producer Infinite Quest to give you a better look into who he is as a producer/filmmaker & collaborator of mine. Hope you enjoy & if you'd like to hear more from him hit the photo above to check out his soundcloud page.
FT - State your name and where you're from
IQ - Infinite Quest aka A.P.C.Q New Jersey
FT - I remember the first time I heard the name INFINITE QUEST years ago, there were multiple images going through my brain. What's the origin of this name?
IQ - At first it was IQ, but I came across this animated series called The Infinite Quest. Its about a doctor and his partner going throughout space to find data chips to unlock The Infinite, a huge spaceship that grants people hearts desires. So I thought that was pretty dope, I feel like my instruments are the data chips and I'm trying to unlock The Infinite(Space Ship), my Signature sound.
FT - How long have you been producing? Did this evolve from rapping or did you always play instruments/were…Continue
A few weeks back W.E. posted a photo of Floco in the studio with a young singer/songwriter by the name of Thomas Young. Last night we got the audio for that song called "Circles & Sp_ces" produced by Infinite Quest. You can download the song for FREE or pay 1$ if you wish. CSCD2 coming soon!
Floco wasn't involved in The Bragg Jam Festival this year but that didn't stop him from attending & checking out the music. He even incited a #selfieswithtorres game that you can see some of on his Instagram profile. The photo above is with Hip-Hop artist Sabir Muhammad.
Last week, Calvin Hicks interviewed Floco on Make It Work Molly blog about the new album, his show/tour process, what he's listening to right now and more.
