Tomáš Dvořák, alias Floex, released his second album Zorya in 2011, ten years after his first album. A Czech composer and clarinettist, Floex is best known for writing the music for the video game Machinarium. His music is, of course, generally very minimalist and electronic in composition, emphasising texture.

Zorya itself is all around a very relaxed album, most of the songs building up slowly, infusing natural harmonies with more synthetic beats in a very unique way. Nel Blu, 9th track of the album is no exception. However, this song features the vocals of Musetta, which provides the ‘dragging’ softness to this track and breaks the pattern of the other instrumental songs on the album, with cluttering desperation and melancholy stacking up until it gets a sudden drop; a soothing and easy end to the song.
