David Firth
Umbilical World

David Firth is a British animator probably best known for 'Salad Fingers', a creepy little short that was passed around my secondary school like a filthy rumour. Umbilical World is a retrospective of the last 13 years of his work, collected as one horrifying and alluring feature length. Also features a making of and audio commentary.

Lapalux
Amnioverse

Essex producer Stuart Howard, AKA Lapalux, returns to the Flying Lotus-owned Brainfeeder label for his fourth album, Amnioverse.

Teebs
Anicca

Los Angeles hip-hopper Teebs returns with his first album in five years. 'Anicca' was recorded at home, seemingly he didn’t hide himself away to do it either. He admits that somewhere in between the Roland SP-404 sampler, Mellotron M4000D synthesizer, his guitar and Ghanaian lute you can hear his daughter and wife going about their day. Teebs is also a member of My Hollow Drum collective and Sons Of The Morning.

Salami Rose Joe Louis
Zdenka 2080

You can get away with calling yourself something like Salami Rose Joe Louis if you’re signed to Brainfeeder. On her latest full-length record 'Zdenka 2080' the Bay Area mainstay shows off exactly the kind of chops that would have impressed label boss Flying Lotus. This LP’s blend of nu-jazz songwriting, neo-soul, Adult Swim-style zaniness and vaguely astral noodling really isn’t far from the work of fellow Brainfeeder luminary Thundercat.

Ross From Friends
Epiphany

I guess now that ‘90s sitcom, Friends, is trending again due to it being shown on Netflix, Ross From Friends, AKA, Felix Clary Weatherall, can piggy-back that publicity by releasing his new record. It is called Epiphany, named after his sister who is one of the most important people in his life. On this new 12" he’s gone for an ‘80s sci-fi vibe that incorporates elements of techno, jazz, house and ambient music. 

Dorian Concept
Toothbrush / Booth Thrust

With new two-tracker ‘Toothbrush’/‘Booth Thrust’ the Viennese producer/sound-artist Dorian Concept gives us more of that hip-hop-IDM thing that he’s so good at. Combine the maximalism of Rustie, the progressive tendencies of Konx-om-Pax and the day-glo hysteria of Iglooghost and you’ve basically got there. It’ll surprise no-one that ‘Toothbrush’/‘Booth Thrust’ is coming out on Brainfeeder.

Iglooghost
Clear Tamei / Steel Mogu

British producer Iglooghost creates abstracted bass music which is both frantic and polished to a vibrant sheen. You could place him alonsides the likes of Oneohtrix Point Never, Arca, Flying Lotus, and Squarepusher quite easily. Originally released as separate EPs on the Gloo imprint, here Brainfeeder have put them together as a single package.

Thundercat
The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam

Mind-bending bassist, and frequent Flying Lotus collaborator, Thundercat releases the mini-album The Beyond/Where the Giants Roam. Not only does FlyLo help out on these jazzy electro numbers, but the legendary Herbie Hancock lends his fingers to keyboards and pal Kamasi Washington is on hand as well. This bold digi-funk comes on 180 gram red vinyl.

Various
Brainfeeder X

We all like a bit of Flying Lotus's imprint Brainfeeder but it can be hard to keep up with their deluge of releases. So this handy compilation could be a good place to get acquainted or re-aquainted with the LA based beats people. It's a 4LP (or 2CD) collection of their best bits containing all your favourites such as  Lapalux, Teebs, DJ Paypal and of course Sir Fly Lo.

Thundercat
Drunk

If you move in certain areas of music (the LA Brainfeeder / cosmic jazz axis and surrounds), you will appreciate Thundercat as a god-like figure. The man plays electric bass like nobody’s business, but he is also a mighty songwriter, and Drunk is his own record. It features an amazing cast of collaborators (Kendrick Lamar! Kamasi Washington!), and is presented on one CD or four 10” vinyl records.

Georgia Anne Muldrow
Overload

Georgia Anne Mudrow can count Erkyah Badu, Mos Def, and Blood Orange as fans. So the question you should be asking yourself is why aren't you? Overload is Mudrow's first album on Brainfeeder, which turns out to be the perfect home for her gently mutated funk and soul. Her commitment to restraint her makes her a vital foil to the maximalism the Brainfeeder stamp of approval usually means. 

Brandon Coleman
Resistance

The fun times just keep coming as the party fortress Brainfeeder offers us Resistance, the new cut from Brandon Coleman. To put things in perspective, he happens to be a member of saxophonist Kamasi Washington's band, padding out that symphonic sound with fusion sounds on his keyboard and keytar. If you've heard anything off Heaven And Earth you'll know: he's gone on some real funk benders. On his new solo record he draws on boogie vibes and R&B while keeping his vintage electro sound in tac. This will rule.

Louis Cole
Time

Uptown Funk? Nah thanks, Louis Cole has got you covered for all you infectiously groovy disco funk jams, with an added sprinkle of odd and playful (Brainfeeder ready). Having gained admiration from the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Flying Lotus he is now releasing his first full length on Brainfeeder. Features tracks with Thundercat, Genevieve Artadi, and Brad Mehldau.

Dorian Concept
The Nature of Imitation

After several EPs and an album on Ninja Tune Austrian producer Dorian Concept has been signed to Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint. For his first full length with the label The Nature of Imitation is the producer deconstructing and starting again, stepping away from the very clean sound of Joined Dots and taking influence from jazz, fusion, prog, and electronica, bringing the old and new together. It will be groovy and warm and fuzzy.

Ross From Friends
Family Portrait

Give Rossie the CDJs, Marcel. While he may have originally emerged back in 2015 as the clown prince of lo-fi house, Ross From Friends showed off a more mature aesthetic when he debuted on Brainfeeder in early 2018. He follows up that EP, Aphelion, with his first full-length. Family Portrait is a well-rounded distillation of the producer's multi-faceted style, drawing as much influence from his new boss Flying Lotus as it does the fidgety compressed club jams of contemporaries like Project Pablo.

Thundercat + OG Ron C & The Chopstars
Drank

By now you probably know that Thundercat’s third album Drunk is a fast-moving masterpiece that augments his George Duke / Stanley Clarke-influenced fusion style with shades of Zappa and Todd Rundgren. An A Wizard, A True Star for our times, even, but one that finds room for Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins! The album’s richness and detail make it a great candidate for a chopped and screwed treatment. Slower, longer, and deeper, this slurred, sticky, double cup purple version is a massively fun alternative route to Thundercat’s fiendish funk, intricate basslines and soulful vocals.

Kamasi Washington
The Epic

If you enjoyed the corners of Flying Lotus’ music where he flirts with psychedelic jazz, now is a chance to get more, much more… The Epic, released on FlyLo’s own Brainfeeder label, is a three disc super-album orchestrated by Kamsai Washington and utilising orchestra, choir, and a band that includes bassist Thundercat. Hell of a thing.

Iglooghost
Neo Wax Bloom

It’s Iglooghost and his debut album Neō Wax Bloom, 2 years after his Brainfeeder debut ‘Chinese Nü Year’ EP (4 tracks about a neon worm named Xiangjiao and his time-travel excursions). Now, 2 huge eyeballs land in the strange world of Mamu. It’s an intense and topsy-turvy ride through a fantastical, expanding domain -- life-cycles are out of equilibrium, creatures must adapt and evolve as mysteries begin to untangle.

Lapalux
Ruinism

Third album from producer Lapalux, developed from a theatrical score to a performance art piece and turned into the Ruinism you see before you. Lapalux’s style is a digital-industrial maelstrom tethered to beat structures for a wrecked-up club, with Ruinism being an apt descriptor. Guest vocals come from include GABI, Louisahhh and JFDR. Out on Brainfeeder.

Jameszoo
Fool

Straight out of Holland comes Jameszoo, an eclectic DJ and producer who has turned to incorporating live instrumentation into his work on new album Fool. In doing so he contributes to the post-Kamasi Brainfeeder mission of re-engineering funk jazz music, working with veterans like Steve Kuhn, Arthur Verocai and in-house bass wizard Thundercat. On Brainfeeder.

Kneebody + Daedelus
Kneedelus

Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint is constantly upping the ante when it comes to fusing deep electronic production and the freedom of jazz playing. Here Jazz quintet Kneebody pair up with equally face-paced and ever changing producer Daedelus. Aptly titled Kneedleus their two worlds collide, with a high energy burst, where you can’t really tell which is taking the lead… if, infact, any of them are!  

DJ Paypal
Sold Out

DJ Paypal is here with Sold Out, stretching the pun as far as it can go there. Going for pure fun in a footwork world, this is his debut for Brainfeeder and the music is a mix of fast tempo remixes of genres such as jazz and salsa combining EDM and hip hop elements. Sold out? We'll see. Should be.

Daedelus
The Light Brigade

Daedelus makes joyous IDM informed by a myriad genres: be it jazz, downtempo, instrumental hip hop, he's swimming in it. This makes him a pretty ideal candidate for Brainfeeder, the spontaneous hybrid-lover record label fronted by Flying Lotus. On this record, Daedelus takes a serious turn, the record attempting to document the scenes of the Crimean War. For an artist who's graced Ninja Tune and Anticon with his presence, it's a dark turn. 

Mono/Poly
Golden Skies

Brainfeeder don't do too much wrong so hopes are high for this debut album from Mono/Poly (aka Charles Dickerson). Even better news is that Thundercat makes an appearance twanging his bass and Flying Lotus affiliates Niki Randa and Rebekah Raff, plus Mendee Ichikawa (Free Moral Agents) are here too. Mono/Poly already has fans in Erykah Badu and Radiohead and appeared on Thundercats's excellent  ‘Apocalypse’. Looks like a winner to me.  LP pressed on 180g vinyl with printed innersleeve and download code.

Ras G
Back On the Planet

Good to have you Back On The Planet, Mr. G. For his first Brainfeeder LP in a couple of years we find old Ras in an Ancient Space Program way, which means that you should strap yourselves in before listening to this one. In the noble tradition of Sun Ra, Pharaoh Sanders et al, Ras G travels deep into the astral plane here, swinging from spiritual groove tracks (‘All Is Well…’) to the most fervid of noisescapes (‘Back On The Planet’).
