About this item

Nearly 5 years after the last Flying Lotus album, the Grammy-nominated You’re Dead!, and Flying Lotus’ stock has never been higher. The interim years have seen him collaborating with Kendrick Lamar on the classic "To Pimp a Butterfly", directing and writing the Sundance-premiered Kuso movie, and producing much of Thundercat’s "Drunk".

Flamagra encompasses hip-hop, funk, soul, jazz, global dance music, tribal poly-rhythms, IDM, the L.A. Beat scene, but it soars above a specific vortex whose coordinates can’t be accurately charted. Other than to say that it is a Flying Lotus record, perhaps the definitive one.

Flamagra features (in order of appearance): Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, David Lynch, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi, Solange and more.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: In the five years since FlyLo's last LP "You're Dead", the West Coast producer has worked his magic on Kendrick's "To Pimp A Butterfly" and Thundercat's "Drunk", written and directed a movie and somehow found the time to create a total MASTERPIECE. Blurring genre boundaries as ever, Ellison fucks with jazz, hip hop, RnB, juke, soul and soft rock, keeps the interludes short and so so sweet, and invites the likes of Solange, Anderson .Paak, George Clinton and Thundercat to guest on his strongest SONGS to date. Sublime, beautiful and brilliant.
