Flying Lotus's Homecoming Cosmogramma 2 night release party, the first night was for the beat heads and the second night (shown here) was and orchestral jazz interpetation show.

Dela-The Robert Glasper Beat Tape

<a href="">Kiss by dela</a>

i'm in the precess of reviewing a bulk of new music, but i find myself coming back to this one. I've always been a fan of Dela, he's consistent with the Solid Drums and comfortable piano chops, this beat tape is a nice break from all the synth stuff.

FLYING LOTUS-Do the Astral plane

For everyone who thinks Flying Lotus’ music is just too abstract for them, Cosmogramma has a few tracks that are easily digestible! Table Tennis, Galaxy in Janaki and Do the Astral Plane are some that will have naysayers ready to buy the album. When I was listening to the album, and Do the Astral Plane came on I immediately bean plotting how I was gonna add this song to my DJ set. It has a groove that feels like  house music but is  still “bound to wreck your body and turn the party out”

This lp was a surprisingly chill , lots of hypnotic soundscapes. There were moments of chaos, but thats al they were. Thumbs up Flylo!

Bug – Cosmic Lab / 20 Winks

24 year-old Londoner, BUG, is a keyboard player, songwriter and producer. Under the moniker, BUG, he creates an experimental, instrumentally grounded style of music with a compositional approach. The BUG sound encompasses the finer elements of hip-hop and neo-soul, yet the real beauty is in the delivery. Think the smooth richness of the Dam-Funk vibe, the solid construction of a Dilla beat, the electronic wizardry of Flying Lotus and the soulful melodies of Lonnie Liston Smith’s jazz.

I appreciate this record's straight-forwardness, solid downbeats without all
the showy beeps and clicks that are so popular right now. BUG is one to watch in the near future, enjoy.

Georgia Anne Muldrow Remix: Untitled/Fantastic

The Sounds of VTech / Georgia Anne Muldrow Remix: Untitled/Fantastic

Big Shout to District Fam Nachural for this one Georgia Anne Muldrow Remix: Untitled/Fantastic by Suite for MaDukes(an orchestra that plays Dilla covers...
yeah that IS Dope).

"Untitled/Fantastic is the emotional hub of Suite for Ma Dukes. When Mochilla/VTech screened the film in Detroit last week somebody shouted out ,“Now that’s what I’m talking about…”

HouseShoes has said several times, that he can’t watch Untitled/Fantastic without tearing up. If Suite for Ma Dukes has unlocked the emotional power of Dilla’s music, Untitled/Fantastic is the key. Here it is, our last offering from the three dvd set. To see the rest, you’ll have to purchase them.

The official street date is June 6th, but most retailers should have them before that. If not please spend it with us at MOCHILLA.

Please enjoy… and share.

Rest in Peace Dilla.
