Flying Lotus has a collaboration with Beck “just fucking sat there on my hard drive waiting for when the time is right”. So that’s good to know, isn’t it?

The LA soundsmith, real name Steven Ellison, spoke in brief about the duet to Drowned In Sound, saying: “He hit me up after the last record and wanted to do something. It sounds like Can but fucked up. It’s really quite dark”.

Flying Lotus isn’t yet sure when the time will be right to release the Beck single, but is certain he’ll release his new solo LP, ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, via Warp on 1 Oct.
