“Like You Mean It”

Flying Lotus’ influence is interesting; I’ve read him claim that many producers think they’re legit just by shifting the kick and snare off beat a little. Such a “trick” (like the auto-tune trend, but way more subtle) is testament to electronic music’s shift towards some hazy organic quality, though a bizarre melding of sound and style might be a more appropriate description. This track from Matthewdavid, on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint, is a fair example of how certain trends crystallize over time until they simply become different colors on an artists musical palette. Which is to say that nothing feels forced here.
