Fly High: Flying Lotus 2x3

Not sure how to put this... Lemme try.


LA's own Flying Lotus releases the second EP of the Los Angeles trilogy, with the 1st Warp Records release having come to boisterous acclaim and spirited praise. This time, the FlyLo's Winnetka wizardy is felt more in his art direction as having commissioned rmxs of 1x3 tracks.
Hired guns are California cohorts Nosaj Thing, Ras G and his African Space Program, my man Samiyam, Monopoly and Exile to mention a few, all hand over very capable personal renditions and edits of FlyLo joints.
BUT, my favorite riddim (and one that I've been chatting about from the day I heard it a few months back) was the Roberta Flack rmx courtesy of Mike Slott. Simply put, beatific.
I hit Mike Slott up yesterday after buying the 2x3 EP, and told him simply that his rmx would be my wedding song. And to boot, would you believe that Mike lost the original vers - as he told me one night on the A train back to Washington Heights? Hence, the name of the rmx. Man.. not sure if I should cheer or be sad. LOL?

DO NOT do yourself a disservice and pass over this EP. 2x3 EP is a mandatory item in that library (as was 1x3).

Anyhow, I have a wedding to prepare for, and here's Flying Lotus' Roberta Flack, re-dressed in Mike Slott's finest fabrics.
