To top off the year, Flying Lotus has shared a compilation of outtakes called “Ideas+drafts+loop” via Mediafire. The compilation includes 24 tracks of outtakes and remixes featuring Thundercat, Shabazz Palaces, Earl Sweatshirt, Baths, DJ Mehdi, Niki Randa, the Underachievers, Andreya Triana, Viktor Vaughn, and Mapei.
Also featured on the tracks include Captain Murphy, Flylo’s hip-hop alias. While it boasts Flylo’s staple electro-jazz savvy productions, one of the most interesting tracks is undoubtedly his remix of Kanye West’s “Black Skinhead,” which features the impressive bass chops of L.A. bass juggernaut Thundercat. The rest of the package, sonically, is all over the place from the lap-top spazzy “about that time,” to the boogie space jam “Stonecutters.”
The package seems to be released in celebration of reaching 300,000 Twitter followers: “Hey you guys are gonna share this folder right? Pls pass it around,” said Flying Lotus, adding “thanks for everything .. im feelin all emo about this..”
