Erykah Badu Teams With Flying Lotus for New Project

California experimental producer Flying Lotus has revealed that he is working on a new project with eccentric singer Erykah Badu.

The collaboration seems like a natural pairing for the two progressive musicians, as Badu takes her electronic-hip-hop influences the R&B route and Flying Lotus generally filters his to the dubstep-electronica world. Furthermore, Badu has a history of working with left-of-center beatsmiths like Madlib and J Dilla, both clear influences on Flying Lotus’s dusty, soulful electronica.

FlyLo announced the collaboration via his Twitter account on Monday (April 11), when he wrote, “Waiting for Badu to get here so we can start Day 1 of our project together.” He had previously revealed that Badu will be DJing the Coachella Stones Throw/Brainfeeder Pool Party in Palm Springs this weekend, alongside himself, Madlib, Dam Funk, Peanut Butter Wolf and others of their ilk.

The two initially teamed up for a surprise collaboration on Badu’s ‘Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long’ video from her 2010 album, ‘New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh),’ which the beatmaker co-directed back in February.

Stay tuned for further news of their project after the two DJ together and perhaps make a few other surprise appearances this weekend during Coachella music festival.
