FlyLo remixes Bilal and directs the video

The Sounds of VTech / Bilal Levels

Flying Lotus aka Steve Ellison's love of film is well known, it was his original first choice over music no less, this is his directorial debut. This video and remix is yet more evidence that his creativity knows no bounds, he really is going from strength to strength taking jazz and soul into the future. The remix features Stephen 'Thundercat' Bruner on bass who's also in the video as are Erykah Badu and Shafiq Husayn (who produced the track). This is what's its all about today people.

This is a deep house mix inspired by Motor City Drum Ensemble's Raw Cuts. I'm pretty pleased with this mix. It kicks off with a live session track by Caribou, a couple of Raw Cuts, Fourtet a great Kim English track which has fantastic guitar and ends with the greatness of the Masters at Work.

Scotland road trippin

This is a mix I put together for the drive between Glasgow and Campbeltown I took for new years down on the farm. Its mainly on a funk/boogie vibe rounded off by two astounding Jay Electronica tracks. The last was done as a tribute to GURU, the sample of the famous Martin Luther King speech never fails to make the hairs at the back of my neck stand up, powerful stuff. Also be sure to check the second Dam Funk track, that is some serious electrofunk synth playing going on there!
