Flying Lotus is smitten with Thundercat. Ever since the two worked together on Cosmogramma and Pattern+Grid World, Fly Lo is all up in Thundercat's business, making him mixtapes and lending a helping hand with his debut record. It's pretty darn adorable.
Further proof of Fly Lo's infatuation:
Lots of people ask me about Thundercat, and how I come to know this guy. Thing is you’ve been hearing him for years and probably didn’t even know it. He’s one of the most talented bass players I’ve ever witnessed and I’ve been blessed to have worked with this guy on ‘Cosmogramma’ and ‘Pattern+Grid World’. Since then Thunder has been like a brother to me and feels like the other half of my brain in the studio. I thought it would be good to get you familiar with the man who’s contributed his unique sound to so many records I love. Here’s some things, a prelude to the LP. Some new, some you might know, some we may never release.
Fly Lo is straight cupcaking!
