Among the LPs that grace our turntables, Herbie Hancock’s “Head Hunters” and Flying Lotus’ “Until the Quiet Comes” stay in heavy rotation. Recognizing common threads across two incredible records released almost forty years apart, we asked ourselves an interesting question: What if Herbie and the Headhunters covered the work of FlyLo and his partner Thundercat? We’ve revisited this challenge on and off while developing our own new sounds.
Coincidentally, after we made some headway on this track we discovered that the sources of our inspiration had spent some time in the studio together. Apparently we weren’t the only ones who recognized the musical kinship between these greats.
