Tiny Mix Tapes

Brainfeeder drop new mixtape to celebrate the arrival of 2018, accidentally slip in new Flying Lotus track because he runs the label…


Unless you have been locked inside a sensory deprivation tank for over a week (in which case we applaud you, zen warrior), you will have noticed that it is now 2018. While some folks mark the occasion of a new year with epic fireworks and copious mind-altering substances, the folks at Brainfeeder have gone the “nice and legal” route and released a new mixtape (okay, maybe they partook in a few substances too).

As you can see, the label will be turning 10 this year; and if this tidy mix — entitled Brainfeeder 2017 ∞ 2018 and put together by PBDY — is any indication, we are likely to see the label unleashing new material by Iglooghost, Locust Toybox, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and a little-known artist called Flying Lotus.

That’s right: if you hop along to the final track of the mix, you’ll find a new track by Flying Lotus called “Quarantine” — which may (or may not) be off his soon to be (or not soon to be) released forthcoming album…of which there are no details (so stop asking)…except that FlyLo has tweeted that he’s finishing his next album for Warp. But, given the unreliability of comments made on Twitter *cough*Trump*cough*, who knows.

For now, we have Brainfeeder’s 2018 mix. Check it:
