Who isn’t wetting themselves with excitement for ‘You’re Dead’, the highly anticipated LP from Steve Ellison aka Flying Lotus?! Due for October release, it boasts features with the likes of Snoop Dogg and Thundercat, and has already incited worldwide hype with the tantalising Soundcloud teaser.
This first installment entitled ‘Never Catch Me’ is a schizophrenic fusion of Flylo’s beats, jazz melodies and bass riffs going tête-à-tête with king Kendrick‘s unmatchable rhythm and flow in this collaboration of the gods. From the offset, the song snatches the ears and fills them with both the insanely beautiful and the beautifully insane, musically skittering about like Bambi on ice. If you haven’t already, prepare to have it stuck on repeat for the next few days – it makes for addictive listening.
