The first of two mixes by Zero 7 from 2010, packed with an hour of the best hip hop and electronic music. Zero 7 are idols of mine and PixMix1 feels like it was made for me personally. Why? Well, it features the likes of Mos Def, J Dilla, Flying Lotus, and Q-Tip for a start. But it’s also because the tracks chosen formed the…

We interviewed Deadpoole about his latest album and his thoughts on last year’s music. Luke: Congratulations on the new album. Would you say this is your best to date? Deadpoole: Thanks so much. I think so, even right from when first I started out I was always working towards an album. The three EP’s that preceded NIGHT/LIFE were me cutting my teeth musically, figuring out…

Dutch producer Stan Forebee offers up a mellow remix of Flying Lotus’ Siren Song. Just what I needed at 1am on a Saturday night/morning. The Netherlands’ is a hot bed for hip hop talent, from Nicolay to Nubbz to Beatsofreen and Stan Forebee is no exception. Taking inspiration from Flying Lotus’ Siren Song, Forebee created a chilled out masterpiece worthy of anyone’s ear space. Stream it…

Flying Lotus recently dropped the video for his track “Coronus, The Terminator” and it’s not to be missed under any circumstances. I don’t care that we’re only 1/24th of the way through 2015 – this is a contender for video of the year. Flying Lotus delivered one of the best albums of 2014 in “You’re Dead” as he pushed his art past the realms of…

RKZ is back for his fourth Round Up featuring Basement Jaxx, Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar. Gather round, get comfortable, stick your headphones on and zone out for the evening. I’m keeping this month short and sweet with a music hit-list full of smooth, powerful, resonating gloriousness. Barney Artist – Space I absolutely LOVE the production on this joint, the concept, and the simplicity of…

DJ Skarface returns with another fine mix, this time blending Deltron 3030’s classic debut with the music of Flying Lotus. You’ll hopefully remember DJ Skarface’s dope MadDILLAiny mix from last year. Well, a few months ago (sorry for the lateness, dude), the ATL-based disc jockey merged the worlds of Deltron 3030 and Flying Lotus in an audacious work of art. Considering both FlyLo and Deltron’s…

Jazz legend Herbie Hancock has been collaborating with Flying Lotus, as he discussed with Time Out Dubai. You’ll hopefully remember when we showed you footage of Herbie Hancock in the studio with Flying Lotus and Thundercat. Even earlier, there were rumours of a collaboration between the jazz icon and Los Angeles’ electronic maestro but it now seems less of a rumour and more of a…

A spur-of-the-moment decision from Steven Ellison (AKA: Flying Lotus) to thank people for getting him to the 300,000 follower Twitter milestone has manifested itself as an impromptu compilation entitled ideas+drafts+loops. The ever-charismatic and ridiculously multi-talented producer Flying Lotus took to Twitter and made a very simple & plain statement to his legions of devoted followers/fans: About to be 300k today probably. Zip file coming right…

MeLo-X releases a short film to accompany his upcoming album, “GOD: Piéce de Résistance”. When it came to short films, Michael Jackson had that game on lock while he was with us but it seems he has spiritually passed the baton onto the likes of Flying Lotus and now MeLo-X. The latter is set to release his newest album, “GOD: Pièce de Résistance”, on 5th…
