BLU LOTUS

You should probably know by my decision to completely remix Cosmogramma (chopped & screwed style) a while back that I’m a big fan of what Flying Lotus is all about.  I feel like he can really delicately skate that line between electronic music and hip-hop, and in the process kinda transcend both of them, it’s really awesome.  So far he’s mostly been rockin things instrumental style though, there are usually only a couple cuts per album that will feature a vocalist, and he’s actually leaned more towards singers than rappers thus far.

But there have been a couple tracks (one came out about a year ago, the other one just earlier today) that he’s done with a rapper named Blu that I think are really excellent, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that they’ll have more material in the future, because I feel like it takes a certain kind of rapper to keep up with that Flying Lotus sound, and I haven’t heard anybody do it as good as Blu does so far.  Keep it up, fellas!
