EXCLUSIVE NEW DOWNLOAD: Kanye West - Love Lockdown (Flying Lotus Remix)
At this point everyone has an opinion on Kanye West's new album 808s & Heartbreak and more specifically his single "Love Lockdown," so we'll leave that discussion behind and instead turn to this mind-melting new remix of the single from our perennial favorite Flying Lotus. Using only the main vocal stem from the original, FlyLo has built a moist, aromatic swamp around 'Yes lead, with collapsing shards of percussion and amorphous tempos (sometimes the vocal seems to get lost, but just go with it, it works out.) It's par-for-the-course for the celebrated producer and deejay, who just nabbed the nod as Pitchfork's 28th best record of 2008 for his Warp debut Los Angeles. Next year brings his installment in !K7's celebrated DJ Kicks series next, which, if his Essential Mix for BBC's Radio 1 is anything to go by, it's going to be pretty extensive and trippy.
Sounds like: Burial, Nightmares On Wax
