Flying Lotus

Missed Mixtapes #7

NTS Radio’s Dom Roarty provides XWHY with a series of Mixtapes that don’t deserve to be missed

So, some of you may have heard this one before. But it is so good I think it merits sharing with you again.


This is the second mix in a series of mixtapes put together by Flying Lotus in 2011 for Stones Throw Records.

Lovers Melt 2‘ lasts a total of 2 hours and 25 minutes and moves between the best in soul, psych and jazz. It is so good to hear Donald Byrd, Sun Ra and David Lynch (yes, the film director) on the same mixtape!

Stones Throw didn’t realise a tracklist but someone on the internet has been kind enough to produce one:
