Nearly half a decade has elapsed since the last Flying Lotus album, You’re Dead!, and now the multi-disciplinary Los Angeles artist returns with his next quantum leap, Flamagra. An astral afro-futurist masterpiece of deep soul, cosmic dust, and startling originalit, the release 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.
On Flamagra Lotus is aided by a dream cast of collaborators: Anderson .Paak, Solange, George Clinton, Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces, Toro y Moi, and his telepathic kinsman, Thundercat.
2LP black vinyl, in printed inners, in gatefold outer sleeve, DL card insert.
