avatars-000099101354-613ydg-t500x500Out of Los Angeles, Steven Ellison, known as Flying Lotus, has been working on his new album, You’re Dead! scheduled to drop on October 7th in the US. Today, he leaked “Never Catch Me” featuring Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick raps over a stream of jazzy, flying, tight production which demands attention as it changes key and pulls you along yet grounding you in the piano’s recurring theme. In his silence, wordless backing vocals add to the already crowded tune, and the title points to both Kendrick’s effortless and rapid flow and Ellison’s elusively abstract instrumentals. Check out a clearer version here.
