Watch Must See Flying Lotus and Kendrick Lamar Music Video For “Never Catch Me”

Posted in Chill, Video by Jake | Tags: , , , , ,

Flying Lotus Kendrick Lamar

Flying Lotus' forthcoming album You're Dead! serves as a concept album depicting the journey of death through musical voyage. Steven Ellison is the maestro behind Flying Lotus and he continues to push musical boundaries with his fusion of Jazz and electronic production on You're Dead!. Enlisting the talents of lyrical wizard Kendrick Lamar on "Never Catch Me", we got to hear the amazing chemistry between the two artists.

One view on the meaning of the video is it reflecting on the concept behind the album as a young boy & girl experience death and seemingly jump back to life in an energetic dance during their funeral ceremony, but remain unnoticed by those in attendance. The children have a ghostly presence as they dance out of the ceremony only to hop into the hearse and cheerfully drive away as if they've just been freed. We can only expect more collaborations between these two L.A. based legends in the making as they have expressed great excitement to be working together. Be sure to grab You're Dead when it's released Oct 7 via Warp Records.

Whether it's a new track or a music video serving as a public service announcement, everything Diplo touches seems to turn to gold. Heavyweight producers Yellow Claw and LNY TNZ teamed up with Diplo alongside Waka Flocka Flame on "Techno" last month, and now we get the visual interpretation of this tune. This dark video depicts the path drugs take from the source to the end user ultimately dying as a direct result from these drugs. With the amount of drug-related casualties that have been happening at music festivals and shows over the past couple years, this video serves as a P.S.A. to all music fans as the video ends with "Drugs Are Not Worth The Risk" displayed at the end of the video.

With acts like Australian producer Thomas Jack in this world, we will never escape the summer-time vibes even if colder temperatures are upon us! Having drawn inspiration from a recent trip to the shores of Mexico, TJ channeled his skills and applied a delightful touch to accomplished musician Ben Sollee's latest single “Letting Go”. Loads of tropical goodness and chill house elements are reconstructed around Ben’s voice, making this remix something you are going to be playing over and over again. Now that his visa issues are finally sorted out, Thomas Jack is officially stateside (as you can see in his outrageous video below) for a string of Endless Summer shows with good friend Kygo with tickets for select cities still available here. Stream and download this free release below and above all… Enjoy

So when Tom played his US return show at Webster Hall this past weekend, he closed out the show by doing the unthinkable and taking his shoe off and drinking a beer out of it. Properly called a "Shoey", it looks like this might be something we can expect from ole Tom when he hits a city near you.

We have our hands on a video shot by a fan attending the festival who managed to catch the impressive live setup. It appears that he has a screen with a projection covering the entire stage, with a custom Z shaped DJ booth and lights behind him. The fan who recorded the video said you could see his face and silhouette, which added a level of personality, yet kept things very under wraps in typical ZHU-like fashion.

US Fans: Also we have some exciting news for all our US fans, ZHU will be bringing over his live show to America for the first time playing a huge set at HARD's "Day of the Dead" festival. More details below.
