It’s hard to put into words just how triumphant a year it’s been for the madcap music man that is Flying Lotus. He’s played in-house DJ for Hannibal Buress’ Why?, delivered one of the year’s most deliciously cosmic collaborations, forming the supergroup WOKE along with Thundercat and Shabazz Palaces and releasing an intergalactic gem with the patriarch of funk George Clinton. But today, FlyLo’s graced the internets with some extended listening, releasing the deluxe edition of his 2014 masterpiece You’re Dead!, featuring the album’s instrumentals as well as original versions of some of your favorite cuts and the dreamy, dissonant dopeness of bonus track “Protector,” which should provide ample replay value for the seasoned FlyLo enthusiast and newcomers alike. The deluxe edition of Flying Lotus’ You’re Dead! is available for you to purchase today on iTunes. Stream the bonus track “Protector” below via Spotify along with his forthcoming tour dates to see your boy’s cerebral live set in the flesh.
