THUNDERCAT – THE BEYOND/WHERE THE GIANTS ROAM

Shortly after releasing the Kamasi Washington-featured ‘Them Changes‘, Thundercat releases brand new short album ‘The Beyond/Where Giants Roam’.  It’s a superb collection of Jazz, Hip Hop and Neo-Soul that feels like a result of the wave that the vocalist/producer/bass player is currently riding after contributions to some of this year’s best albums so far [namely ‘To…

JOEY BADA$$ – PERCEPTION VS REALITY [PROD. FLYING LOTUS

If you haven’t yet checked out Flying Lotus’ residency on BBC Radio 1, you need to get to know.  The latest gem to come from the legendary producer’s spot is a previously unheard collaboration with Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$.  The beat is a very serious, string-heavy affair, matched by Joey’s low, introspective rumble.  Stream ‘Perception…

FLYING LOTUS – CORONUS, THE TERMINATOR [VIDEO]

Taken from his ‘You’re Dead!‘, Flying Lotus releases a brand new set of visuals for single ‘Coronus, The Terminator‘.  The Young Replicant-directed video is suitably eerie given its sonic context, and features a ghostly FlyLo.  The man himself said “For me, Coronus is one of the most important moments on You’re Dead! and holds ideas I’m planning…

Flying Lotus has been very good to us lately.  Just days ago he dropped a teaser video for his upcoming album, ‘You’re Dead’, which came with samples of the tracks, amazing animation and loads of cover art.  Now, it’s the turn of his rap alter-ego Captain Murphy to bring something to the table – and…
