This is the kind of stuff music nerds dream of. Underground heroes Flying Lotus and MF Doom have teamed up on a new track for GTAV on PS4 (holy **** they actually expect people to buy this game twice?) and it’s really a mystery why the two haven’t teamed up for more in the past… both of them enjoy supervillan alter-egos that make gritty, raw music and that’s exactly what we have with Masquatch. Carrying on the sort of psychedelic, jazzy vibe that we heard in You’re Dead, Flyo’s organic timbres make a perfect backdrop for Doom’s unique flows, leaving ample room for the beat to shine through.
I’m no psychic, but I think only a taste of what could be possible between these two. They share a lot aesthetic similarities and the syngery is undeniable… I predict this won’t be the last Flylo x Doom collaboration we’ll see and I’d be interested to at least see an EP get released if not a full length (maybe involving the Captain Muprhy lore somehow? Throw in Thundercat because the dude is THE bassist right now? Work with me Cartoon Network).
Check out Masquatch ft. Doom below and stay tuned for more jams. And if you work for Cartoon Network, just hire me already, sheesh.
While we’re posting new GTAV Flylo tracks….
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, gl hf if you have to travel… It ain’t cool being no jive turkey so close to Thanksgiving:
Is it DOOM?
