Flying Lotus has a release schedule that is often as difficult to predict as his music itself. The transcendental producer and musician surprised us today with three new tracks on SoundCloud; “Haley’s Line,” “TDC (Alt Experiment),” and “No Feeer.” All three of these tracks are full of the genre-spanning greatness we’ve come to expect from . . .
Flying Lotus has released a deluxe edition of You’re Dead!, his 2014 LP, in honor of the original LP’s one-year anniversary. All of the album’s original instrumentals come to digital formats for the first time, having only previously been available in a highly limited vinyl box set edition of the album. Also, a new bonus track “Protector” . . .
Well, Monday just got more interesting. It would seem that we have a new supergroup on our hands. WOKE; composed of Flying Lotus, Shabazz Palaces, and Thundercat; has just released their first single, “The Lavishments of Light Looking.” Stream “The Lavishments of Light Looking” below.
Kendrick Lamar and Flying Lotus prove to be a beautiful combination with the newly released “Eyes Above.” During his residency on BBC Radio 1, FlyLo played 68 seconds of the trippy record. This track is a very dense listen – between Kendrick’s aggressive, dense lyricism and FlyLo’s otherworldy, adventurous production. You might need more than . . .
I’ve always wanted to hear a few more Flying Lotus covers here and there, but I hadn’t considered the potential of an R&B vocalist to attempt the aforementioned task. Bronx vocalist Claire Reneé did just that, taking things into her own hands with a weekly Flying Lotus cover series. She’s only released two covers so . . .
Flying Lotus has been all over the place lately. The revered producer just jumped into his residency at BBC Radio 1, and he got off to a strong start. Throughout his first show, he moved through an eclectic, varied sequence of music, beginning with an unreleased alternate edit of “Never Catch Me,” his single featuring . . .
Flying Lotus isn’t known for making orthodox music videos. “Coronus, The Terminator” continues that trend. Dark, symbolic imagery takes viewers on a ghoulish, graphic journey between life and death. The video’s impactful subject matter is appropriate, given the mournful, somber sounds that can be heard in the song itself, thanks in no small part to . . .
A lot of Kendrick Lamar fans expected to hear his verse on Flying Lotus‘s “Eyes Above.” When You’re Dead dropped and it was nowhere to be found, questions emerged. The answer is still up in the air in regards to whether or not we’ll hear the actual song, but FlyLo has been playing it in . . .
Flying Lotus isn’t afraid to get weird today with the release of his “Ready Err Not” video, which was animated courtesy of David Firth. Axes, beheadings, and creepy animated monsters are just the tip of the iceberg. Prepare yourself for at least three “WTF” moments. Watch the video for “Ready Err Not” below.
Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar made waves with “Never Catch Me,” originally featured on FlyLo’s You’re Dead album. The newly released visual accompaniment does not feature Kendrick Lamar, but the Hiro Mirai-directed video is beautifully intriguing in its own right. Watch the video for “Never Catch Me” below.
We know the drill by now- Kendrick Lamar guest verses can either start firestorms, or fade into the background. This time around, we’re listening to Flying Lotus‘s “Never Catch Me,” which is set to be featured on his forthcoming You’re Dead! album. Anticipation has been heavy for this record since rumors of its existence started . . .
Menacing and disorienting, Captain Murphy‘s “Cosplay” is filled with graphic, descriptive lyrics. Captain Murphy, Flying Lotus’s alter ego, isn’t afraid to get weird this time around. This is a bit beyond the typical kinky bedroom aggression we’ed expect; the Captain mentions that “he loves it when [she] hurts him,” and talks about he enjoys being . . .
Flying Lotus is in the process of building the hype behind his new album, You’re Dead!. In a newly released animated video, he reveals the complex and intriguing origins of his alter ego, Captain Murphy. Watch the birth of Captain Murphy below.
A sinister all-star cast lines up for “Between Villains,” the latest Adult Swim single. Captain Murphy, a.k.a. Flying Lotus, calls upon Earl Sweatshirt, Viktor Vaughn, and Thundercat to make his eerie vision come to life. The instrumental alone creates a foreboding vibe. Viktor Vaughn (better known as DOOM) and Earl Sweatshirt each possess unorthodox deliveries . . .
Strone’s Throw Records producer Knxwledge takes us on a trip with short psychedelic visuals for his instrumental “Flyinglizrds.” The video also includes a second beat entitled “Shuremng” that’s also set to be featured on his forthcoming project, Hud Dreams. Fans of Flying Lotus and other experimental production should find fulfillment in Knxwledge’s style. Watch Knxwledge’s “Flyinglizrds” video below.
