Flying Lotus is better than you

Flying Lotus has a horrible name. Really. Look at it and you think that you are about to listen to some sort of, if you are lucky, New Age yoga music. Then you read more and you are like, "Oh, instrumental hip hop? I will just file that with my turntablist the trash, zing!" It turns out that Flying Lotus is some of the hottest shit out right now AND he is from the Valley. Go figure. This dude is Alice Coltrane's nephew and he makes some serious headphone music that manages to not be, well, headphone music. His tracks always seem to have some weird squirmy shit going on in them, definitely worth listening to. So here I post for you, loyal reader, a mix and a few videos. Beware, the last video is NSFW in a big, very troubling way. 

Two hours of the Xtreme hotness. Go to the Mad Decent blog for the tracklist.

Interview for XLR8R TV, wherein FL proves that he is, in fact, a "serious artist."

Finally, the video for Parisian Goldfish. NSFfuckingW, yo.
