Flying Lotus - "Golden Axe" (Live on BBC Radio 1)


Flylo's latest “Golden Axe” sounds very little like the electronic explorations he fronted on this year's Cosmogramma or the hip hop/dubstep influences presented on the Pattern + Grid World EP. The Los Angeles producer has been touring with bassist Steven “Thundercat” Bruner and saxophonist Ravi Coltrane who contribute to the new track. Premiered live on BBC Radio, “Golden Axe” is an exotic, chilled out experience, focusing on Middle Eastern tambour, deep swaying bass plucks, and sensual saxophone harmonies. Flylo and crew played two additional tracks after an interview with Gilles Peterson where the virtuoso announced he'll be doing some production on Thundercat's forthcoming album.
