It has now been a year since the beloved Stephen Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, released his 5th full length studio album You’re Dead. Flylo recently surprised all with “The Lavishments of Light Looking” under a new collaborative project titled Woke alongside frequent collaborator Thundercat and Brainfeeder signee Shabazz Palaces. To celebrate the anniversary of You’re Dead!, Flylo is kind enough to share the deluxe version with us, which includes the original album along with all the instrumentals and a bonus track titled “Protector.” This re-mastered, instrumental version brings a new, yet familiar, journey for the listener as we experience the tracks in a new light. Enjoy!

After rising to global fame, Flume performed a very very special series of homecoming shows at one of Australia’s landmarks at the Sydney Opera House for his label Future Classic’s 10 year anniversary. We’ve heard nothing but amazing stories and reviews of the show and are treated to an amazing clip where Flume played his remix of “Turning” from Finnish band act Collarbones, which at the time was unreleased. He was joined by Collarbones frontman to debut the remix in special live fashion. Watch the impactful performance with the Sydney skyline in the background. Enjoy!

Besides announcing he will be running for president in 2020 on the this years MTV Music Awards, Kanye West has been building the buzz around his upcoming album Swish. After sporadically tweeting a mysterious link a few days ago, many jumped to conclusions about what it could be, primarily suspecting it had to do with new music. Tragically, the link led fans to an interview he conducted with ShowStudio, mostly speaking about fashion.
Today the beautiful thing we call the internet further shows just how much time some people have on their hands when one YouTube user uploaded a video of what we all truly wanted; Kanye talking to himself about his own music.
The laugh-out-loud funny, 4 minute video consists of a chopped up version of his recent interview with ShowStudio that has Kanye debating against Kanye on the ranking of his past albums. Leave your comments below and enjoy!
