Recognized for his array of production credits including a Grammy award for Thundercat‘s It Is What It Is album, Flying Lotus has filled his career with some extremely impressive feats. Though the average person might be satisfied after winning a Grammy, the profound producer only keeps pushing forward, testing the creative limits of his repertoire. His most recent undertaking sees the artist put on the director’s hat, leading the production of the iconic “Ozzy’s Dungeon” film, which debuted on V/H/S 99. Alongside the short, Flying Lotus scored a full soundtrack, which released last Thursday.
A compilation of nostalgic sounds and textures, Flying Lotus embraces old-school vibes on this eclectic soundtrack. Standout “Interview Music / What Do YOU Wish For” features an infectious, saturated arpeggio. A delightfully compressed drum machine accents Lotus’s melodies, and maximizes the producer’s throwback sound design. Exploring a variety of genres from rock, to synth-wave, to electronic, the soundtrack exemplifies why Flying Lotus is hailed as a film scoring wizard.
