Pay no attention to what Flying Lotus is rolling in his hands. What counts are his words. On Point and Apollo Magazine Flying Lotus as the producer discusses the influence of video games, Dr. Dre, and life experience on his music.
As we’re approaching this new era a lot of things are going to change. Though it is a lot easier to make the music, I think the music is going to get so crazy and so musical too that like, you’ll know when you hear that. It’s not gonna be no games.

Semantik. you are the dude – I just listened to him on KCRW last week and it was awesome –
I really really agree about his whole “life experience” philosophy – and it’s funny what he says about music class, cause I think a lot of people have had the same type of experience – I did
what he said about the un-named Red Bull guy is balls on – if your music doesn’t make you at want to get up and boogie, I dunno, but I agree – music and dancing are older than spoken language, you should enjoy creating whatever it is you create
the man just articulated whats in my head….no word of a lie.
not overly enamored with the latest ablum,..roll on barcalona. the man recks it.
wu all day.
I wish there were more people like Flylo in hiphop and life in general.
yo! that was real spit! & i remember when that host @ redbull said that about dude dancing to his beats lol!
There wasn’t even any music throughout this interview and I am hella inspired!!! Just pure dopeness! Real and unabashed!
What red bull lecture is he referring too.
its the lecture with derrick may, who seems verrry self satisfied.
ive been on flylo for a min dude inspires me forreal he has a good head
“Though it is a lot easier to make the music, I think the music is going to get so crazy and so musical too that like, you’ll know when you hear that. It’s not gonna be no games.”
“it’s all about those handcrafted beats.”
Does he mean it’s going to be musical? lol
When I first heard FlyLo’s beats a few years back I got hooked. I had to get everything he did. He’s slept on in the hip hop community for being one of the true artists in/out the genre.
So who’s the Red Bull guy Flying Lotus was talking about?
derrick may. of the ones i’ve seen thats one of my least favorite rbma lectures. The guy is way too sure of himself
That was awesome – I have only really heard of Flying Lotus, and not checked it yet but I will b now!
