A highly anticipated track from an astronomically important album has finally been propagated to the masses. I speak of Flying Lotus‘s collaboration with Erykah Badu on a track called See Thru To U which will be featured on his upcoming album ’Until the Quiet Comes’. As usual, FlyLo deftly combines a bounty of exuberant instruments that would seemingly drown out an average crooner, leave it to Badu’s haunting vocals to cut through the cacophony.
Flying Lotus aka the “Wonder from Winnetka” is the epitome of experimental. Two quick things about the man. Firstly, he’s the most talented producer under 30. Secondly, he’s supposed to be remixing Radiohead’s most recent album The King Of Limbs in its entirety! Here’s what he said about that recently:
“They wanted me to remix the new Radiohead record, and I’ve been trying to mess with that a little bit. But I haven’t gotten to it yet.” When asked how that remix might sound, FlyLo responded, “It’s too early to say, man. I have no fucking clue. It’s difficult to work with, because the pieces that they gave me, there’s no real a cappella. It’s like piano and voice at the same time… So I have to come up with some shit that’s a little similar to the record, I guess, to an extent.”
Back to this video, it was released late last year but keeps getting booted off YouTube and various other sites. The video features a middle aged couple getting their dam funk on and progressing into flat out rainbow sex. The track is a personal dance floor favorite but I had circumstantially been challenged when it came to peeping the actual video. If you’re in the same boat as me, feel free to check this video out at work, just make sure your office door is closed, it would be a difficult piece of art to explain on a Friday.
