Flying Lotus – Coronus, The Terminator

The title sounds like a feature film about a vengeful Greek God, so L.A. artist Flying Lotus (b. Steven Ellison) is right on the money as he executes something equally epic, but also ethereal and eerie at the same time. On "Coronus, the Terminator," the experimental artist offers up a track much like a Parliament Funkadelic track for 2014, as a choir of voices rise up in harmony over a soulful backbeat.

Lotus can be heard on Kendrick Lamar’s “Catch Me,” and Lamar will return the favor on Lotus’ upcoming LP You’re Dead! which arrives on October 7, along with other appearances by Snoop Dogg and Herbie Hancock.
