Among the LPs that grace our turntables, Herbie Hancock’s “Head Hunters” and Flying Lotus’ “Until the Quiet Comes” stay in heavy rotation. Recognizing common threads across two incredible records released almost forty years apart, we asked ourselves an interesting question: What if Herbie and the Headhunters covered the work of FlyLo and his partner Thundercat? We’ve revisited this challenge on and off while developing our own new sounds.
Coincidentally, after we made some headway on this track we discovered that the sources of our inspiration had spent some time in the studio together. Apparently we weren’t the only ones who recognized the musical kinship between these greats.
Please see that mixers …and turntables are returned to Kool Herc. (stop).
The ghettos are dancing off beat. (stop).
The master of ceremonies have forgotten that they were once slaves and have neglected the occasion of this ceremony. (stop).
Perhaps we should not have encouraged them to use cordless microphones, for they have walked too far from the source and are emitting a lesser frequency. (stop).
Please inform all interested parties that cash nor murder have been added to the list of elements. (stop). We are discontinuing our current line of braggadocio in light of the current trend in “realness.” (stop).
As an alternative, we will be confiscating weed supplies and replacing them with magic mushrooms in hopes of helping niggas see beyond their reality. (stop).
