Best of 2019: Flying Lotus — “Flamagra”

Welcome to Beet Knife’s Best of 2019. We’ll be sharing a favorite release from one of the artists we work with every day for the month of December. Today’s feature was selected by Jonson Nelson, aka Mosquito Boy.

Flamagra by Flying Lotus is one of my favorite albums that came out in 2019. It’s hard to throw this album, or any of FlyLo’s albums, into a specific genre. He masterfully mixes jazz, electronic, and hip-hop styles together, turning them into something only identifiable as “a Flying Lotus song.” Throw in some Dragon Ball samples, a David Lynch feature, and you’ve sold me.

Flamagra is available as of May 24, 2019 on Warp Records.
