Thundercat Has New Collaboration With BADBADNOTGOOD & Flying Lotus: King Of The Hill

Flying Lotus Brings 3D Tour To Detroit

Flying Lotus’3D Tour landed in Detroit last night at the Royal Oak Music Theater and his show was a colorful trip through pieces of mostly his catalog and music from his influences. His stage set consisted of a podium that resembled a mini volcano or a root and the 3D display behind him close to the ceiling. The audience wore the provided 3D glasses and got to experience holograms of skulls, flowers and falling heads. There were moments when a shimmering sarcophagus moved in the direction of the crowd and opened itself to invite them to lay inside it. They were also invited into a tunnel that disappeared as quickly as it seemed to materialize. Flying Lotus moved through a set that included a smoky background for the eerie “Coronus, The Terminator” but changed into a dance-worthy club atmosphere when he played Kendrick Lamar’s “King Kunta.” He directed the crowd’s exuberant singalongs to Thundercat’s “Friend Zone” and his “Never Catch Me” collaboration with Lamar. Before the evening was over he shared a snippet of new music with anderson.paak but stopped playing it after receiving a text from paak to keep it a secret. When he wasn’t performing his songs or those of his colleagues he took the time to play a piece of Parliament’s “(Not Just) Knee Deep.” The contrast of the music with the dreamlike 3D images made the show feel like a fun excursion that happily combined the virtual with the irreplaceable pleasure of the live communal experience.

Flying Lotus Directs Skinflick Tribute To Friend

Flying Lotus directed a tribute to his friend Bumpy Bob The Bubble Boy (Bob Heslip) for the   NOWNESS channel’s Define Beauty series. Skinflick is the third episode in the series and it presents Bob’s tumor-ridden body to the audience as a way to question common ideas about beauty. Flying Lotus provided the music for the episode and said this about Heslip:

“I first met Bob Heslip when working on my feature film KUSO -  I had him do a very small role for me and in the process of shooting I saw so much potential in him as an actor and a unique human being. He is a lovely man and I wanted to make a film that would honour the beauty of his unique condition”

Skinflick can be viewed on the NOWNESS channel and Flying Lotus is still on his 3D Live Tour.
