Excellent news today for fans of future beats and bass-driven mayhem, with both Flying Lotus and Hudson Mohawke announcing new releases set to drop in the next few months. It’s been two years since electronic mastermind Flying Lotus last wowed fans with an album, but this October that wait comes to an end with the release of his fifth artist LP You’re Dead! As the LA producer himself put it: “Finally! So much went into this one. Lots of talented artists helped realize this vision. Looking forward to sharing details and music soon.”
The notoriously elusive producer hasn’t said much about the album yet, instead choosing to show off the trippy cover art by Japanese artist Shintaro Kago to usher in the news (check it out below). You’re Dead! is pegged for an October 6/7 release via Warp Records, with an accompanying US tour in October and November – there’s more info over at the Flying Lotus website.
Meanwhile, Glasgow’s favourite son Hudson Mohawke also dropped news over night that he’ll be releasing new four track EP Chimes via Warp on September 29. Trap monster Chimes has been circulating for a couple of years, popping up in sets and mixes like TNGHT’s 2012 Diplo & Friends offering, but the EP will see it get a formal release alongside an edit by UK hardcore stalwart Gammer and two brand new tracks, Brainwave and King Kong Beaver. Wrap your ears around Chimes below – his Facebook page is also mysteriously teasing “More AUS Dates TBA” as of December. Stay tuned for more news on that.
