Flying Lotus - A Decade of Flying Lotus Mix

Aight here's a freebie released last Christmas season from West Coast experimental producer Flying Lotus, and this is one hell of a freebie! This is about 40 minutes and 10 years of tracks new and old all mixed together by the motherfuckin Gaslamp Killer! As the story goes Flying Lotus got his break when Adult Swim chose a bunch of his music to play on their network. And another fact that's been beaten to death is that he's the late Alice Coltrane's grand nephew.

Normally I don't get too excited about left-field Hip Hop producers, but unlike most in the genre Flylo manages to keep the funk and soul intact while still making his quirky, atmospheric, psychedelic electronic music - his drums even sounds Dilla-esque sometimes. Gaslamp Killer is Lotus' label-mate and a fellow producer but he's pretty creative on the decks too so all these “oldies” and unreleased gems blend together seamlessly.

So here's celebratin 10 years of Flying Lotus, keep watch for his new album “Cosmogramma” being released April 20th on Warp Records
