Hear Flying Lotus, George Clinton, Thundercat & Shabazz Palaces Take Off On “The Lavishments Of Light Looking”


Funkateers, past, present and future, rejoice. A cosmic collision of Flying Lotus, Thundercat, Shabazz Palaces and the almighty George Clinton has manifested in the form of WOKE; a musical Voltron that is here to bring the vibes to the universe. As the latest installment of Adult Swim’s summer singles series (which has already granted us a new DOOMSTARKS cut) the galaxy-marauding foursome have put their interplanetary funksmanship on full-display in the collaborative heater “The Lavishments Of Light Looking,” channeling that universal vibe on one very spacey funk cut. Cat’s warbled thump guides the cut as FlyLo’s drunken drums knock and Star Child’ s uncanny, burly vox permeates, leading us well beyond the stars on a celestial journey that continues the collaborative legacy that began on the explosive opener to Kendrick Lamar‘s To Pimp A Butterfly. You can hear Flying Lotus, Thundercat, George Clinton and Shabazz Palaces debut as WOKE below, just be sure to keep your ear to the sky for Adult Swim’s next transmission a week from today; a new one-off from Run The Jewels.
