While currently doing the international press rounds for the impending release of his new album, visionary producer Flying Lotus has confessed to JJJ’s Richard Kingsmill that, everything going to plan, he will be back in town Feb of 2013.
All eyes are currently focused square on FlyLo, whose 2012 album Until the Quiet Comes has big shoes to fill. The California-based producer was in town back at the start of 2011, so fortunately for us, he appears to be totally fine with making the trip down.
Asked when Aussie fans will be able to sample the new goods, FlyLo replied: “Hopefully in February”. Ahem…Future Music Festival anyone? Maybe Laneway? One can only imagine the stockpile of new material he will have by that point also. Recently, we’ve caught word of collaborations with Beck, Thom Yorke (who is set to feature on the new album), Earl Sweatshirt and a half-finished Frank Ocean remix.
The full interview won’t go to air for another 2 weeks. Listeners were encouraged to tweet through questions they had for the producer; you can look at the questions fit with answers below.
Until the Quiet Comes will be released later this month.

“Because I’m really busy with things that were official. That remix wasn’t official. I was just playing around drunk. I can’t be wasting my time on something like that. It’s not like a bad thing though, I love Frank Ocean and I love the song but I got deadlines and shit.
Yeah [I would love to work with him]. He knows where I’m at. I don’t think it’s going to happen but he knows where I am”
@triplejtheking hi Richard, can you ask what production software he uses and also what his very first productions sounded like?

“I currently use Reason and Ableton Live with my music. When I first started out? I think it was really West Coast sounding beats. Like Dr Dre in ’95, I guess. I think I’ve come a long way”
@triplejtheking Ask him if he will please produce every album ever from now on
