Night Vision: Flying Lotus @ Downtown Independent

Last night, Dublab threw Labrat Matinee VI at Main Street’s Downtown Independent, the new theater next door to The Smell. After dozens of artful music videos and shorts — ranging from the single-shot mini thriller that Ben Barnes made for WHY?‘s ” Sky For Shoeing Horses Under,” to Tim And Eric’s bizarro Absolut Vodka advert starring Zach Galifianakis — beat music auteur Flying Lotus performed. His set included sizable chunks from 2008’s fantastic Los Angeles LP, hard bop samples, rave send-ups  and at least one Squarepusher drum phrase. I captured a wee bit of it below.

Consider donatating to Dublab’s Flash Forward Proton Drive.

    I just tweeted your video. Great review. It was definitely an experience to say the least. Popped my dublab event cherry too btw thanks to KPFK and Future Roots Radio.

      Thanks for the the tweet, Kris. I saw you’d commented on the o.g. video I posted. I uploaded a slightly edited version and deleted the first, so if you’re still sharing the video (and I hope you are), make sure the link is good!
