Flying Lotus recently sat for an exclusive interview with Sama'an Ashrawi to talk Sun Ra, life in L.A. aka the m.A.A.d. City and more following an epic listening session for his You're Dead! LP. The event held at Mack Sennett Studios in Los Angeles showcased the highly-anticipated project featuring Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington and Snoop Dogg. In typical Flylo fashion, the performance of the avant-garde collection was punctuated by other-worldly visuals and the addition of live musicians from the Brainfeeder camp. The interview portion of the clip finds Flying Lotus applying his future-forward aesthetic to a discussion of the known and unknown, as he reveals his thoughts on a few landmark projects before delving into space and life after death.
