Flying Lotus hit 300,000 followers on Twitter last night, and to celebrate such a massive achievement, he shared a .zip package containing a bunch of drafts, ideas, and loops. The name? 'Ideas+drafts+loops', obviously.
There are 24 tracks in total in the archive, some good, some not so good, but all you'd expect from FlyLo. There are a couple of collaborations featured, with familiar faces like Shabazz Palaces, Baths, Thundercat, and Niki Randa, and a remix of Kanye West's Black Skinhead (streamable here) that features Thundercat.
All in all, a good haul. Oh, and Flying Lotus confirmed that his new album is "almost ready for mixing" too, which is, well, pretty good. Apparently, another .zip will be due before that album drops.
