Flying Lotus, “MmmHmm”

Flying Lotus' video for “MmmHmm” features Thundercat, after raiding Afrika Bambaataa's storage unit, amidst a cosmic love affair with either Kate Moss or just some chick caked in moss – cheap jokes, got'em.

The hypnotic vibes of “MmmHmm” are amplified with the visuals that range from galactic lotus position mating, a brief journey into 8-bit gaming land to smash bunnies and possible viral marketing for the Tron remake. This may be a stretch, but I'd even throw in the possibility this video is drawing inspiration from Aronofsky's The Fountain. Now that I've drawn that connection, I can't help but consider Flying Lotus to be a funkier Clint Mansell.
