Great news for fans of Flying Lotus! As a special thanks for supporting his latest album Cosmogramma, he’s giving away a special package of unreleased tracks called Cosmogramma Alt Takes. The collection contains nine tracks total that didn’t make the cut for the actual album. The reason he chose not to include these songs was because many of them are alternate versions of songs that are already on the album, including extended and stripped mixes, as well as a remix from fellow Brainfeeder artist Teebs. “So, how do I get this” you ask? Read on for details, as well as info on how you can win a signed FlyLo poster from us!
It’s easy to get Cosmogramma Alt Takes if you’ve bought the original Cosmogramma. Log onto FlyLo’s website and click on the link. All you have to do is hold up Cosmogramma to your webcam and your download will start! Pretty cool, huh? Leave it to Flying Lotus to give something away in style. My favorite tracks on this collection have to be Galaxy in Janaki (2008 Version) and the Teebs remix of Archway. Janaki sounds amazing on a pair of good speakers or headphones, combining the sound of his last album Los Angeles with an updated take on hip hop and experimental beats. Teebs’ remix of Archways takes you on an audaciously beautiful journey–bells, drums, and chilled out rhythms create a soothing atmosphere for the listener. Both A+ tracks, as can be expected from a producer with such a high level of quality in his productions.
If all this weren’t enough, in the spirit of giving, LessThan3 is following FlyLo’s lead and giving away a signed poster by the man himself. Just “love” this post and comment, and you will be entered in our contest. You have until 2/4/2011, so don’t miss out on this opportunity! Happy listening, beat heads. <3
