Flying Lotus takes his “experimental beat scene” on the road with a mini West Coast tour that touches down in Oakland, CA (Sep 15 & 16) and Los Angeles, CA (Sep 17). Titled after his indie label, Brainfeeder, the line-up of electronic and deconstructed jazz, to futuristic R&B and instrumental hip hop features Flying Lotus, Thundercat, The Gaslamp Killer, Shabazz Palaces and perhaps the label’s greatest influence — George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic.

To wrap your mind around what to to expect. Take a listen to Thundercat’s new track “Bus In These Streets.” The bass-slapping virtuoso’s comedic ode to our dependence on technology is the first officially released new music from the Grammy Award winner since his 2015 mini-album The Beyond / Where The Giants Roam.
