Flying Lotus Drops 'You're Dead!' Outtake "Transmolecularization" On The BBC
It's getting ridiculous at this point. Flying Lotus once again dropped new high-profile music during his FlyLo FMBBC Radio 1 residency program, this time opting to share some of his own material, an outtake from last year's You're Dead! entitled "Transmoleclularization." Featuring the saxophone talents of rising jazz star and Brainfeeder Records signee Kamasi Washington, the new-to-the-world track is a swinging jazz number that comes across like a more relaxed, dingy-dive-club cousin of "Moment of Hesitation." Two and a half minutes of easy keys and wailing saxophone are what we've been missing on the track that could have sat snugly amongst You're Dead!'s more relaxed numbers.
But Flying Lotus isn't one to hog the spotlight for long, and immediately after dropping "Transmoleclularization" the selector dives deep into the material of Knxwledge, whose Hud Dreems LP release is barely a week old and still spinning on in the heads of beat junkies all around the world. Knx himself stopped by FlyLo's studio for a guest mix and spun plenty of hard-knocking beats--the sort we've brilliance we've come to expect from him. Later in the two hour program, Lotus welcomes both Kutmah and Ras G into the studio for brief guest spots, and if that weren't enough Shabazz Palaces also drop by for a brief interview. It's an expansive roundup of the best new beat music in the whole damn galaxy.
("Transmolecularization" begins at approximately the 5:00 mark)
