Album Review
Reviewed 2011-02-07 
The latest release from Los Angeles-based abstract beat architect Flying Lotus. While with this dual EP he mostly sticks to his signature left-field production, he broadens his palette a bit with forays into 8-bit, ambient, and avant-garde jazz percussion. Lots of cool cosmic electronica, sci-fi themes and intergalactic blunt-smoking. This is what the Tron: Legacy soundtrack SHOULD have sounded like.


1. Flying Lotus’s signature spacey beats with lots of jangly percussion, hi hats, maracas, etc. Far out, bro.
2. Lots of 8-bit electronica with a delicate drum ‘n bass foundation. Upbeat and lighthearted.
3. SPAZZY percussion, lots of jumbled beats and keyboards. A real diverse pallet of sound with just about every combination of “beep” and “boop” imaginable.
*4. Very sparse with lots of muffled vocal tracks, flute samples, water drips, and tinkling chimes. Haunting, with only a minimal beat to guide you through the darkness.
*5. Left-field percussion with great world instruments and strange vocal samples. The bass beat is simple 808, but instead of snares, there’s just the layered sound of drumsticks beating on a kitchen table. Try to imagine it, I dare you. AWESOME. Reminds me of his song “Ping Pong” from Cosmogramma.
6. Bright synthesizer with soaring legato interludes.
*7. Hard-hitting electro with whipped swirls of synth and stuttering percussion. Sounds like it samples the toy raygun that’s sitting in the MD office.
