Grammy Award-nominated producer Flying Lotus has dropped a serendipitous treat into the laps of his fans with the deluxe edition of his sixth studio album, Flamagra. The record arrives a bit past the one-year anniversary of the album's May 24th, 2019 release, which received critical acclaim.
The deluxe edition of Flamagra is rife with full instrumentals of every song from the original record, culminating in an expansive 54-track project. It offers listeners a chance to bask in the innately trailblazing production of one of the most forward-thinking and underrated beatmakers in the game, who is most likely your favorite producer's favorite producer.
“Whereas the original album featured a dream cast of vocal collaborators, this project places the masterful arrangements, electronics and musicianship at the forefront—a treasured peak under the hood of one of today’s most consistently innovative producers,” said a press statement issued in conjunction with the album's release.
Upon its release last year, Flamagra became an instant classic. The album blended electronic, jazz, and hip-hop flavors to aching effect, showcasing Flying Lotus' versatility and status as one of the most highly coveted collaborators in contemporary music. That notion is reinforced by the album's staggering list of features, which include Thundercat, Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Toro y Moi, Solange, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, and Shabazz Palaces, among others.
