Flying Lotus – “MmmmHmmm”
Back in May, FlyLo released his second album on Warp Records. His music is so floaty and experimental that you’d expect nothing less than visual euphoria for his music videos. “MmmmHmmm” is just that. Get lost in this one.

K-os – “Zambony”
Last year, I had K-os‘s Yes! album on serious repeat. Still baffles me why this man is not a HUGE star! “Zambony,” shot in movie style, with the opening line of a woman yelling, “Nobody knows what you’re doing?!” The twists and turns of this video leave you asking the same question. It’s all disconnected. Maybe that was the goal, but it’s shot well to keep your attention. Check it out below.

Tobrock Remix of K-os Yes!
Last month, I uploaded a couple of songs from the creatively sound K-os album, Yes! and was informed of the remix album by German DJ/Producer, Tobrock. [Have I told you Europeans are killing it with the underground sounds right now?] The remix is fantastic. Comprising of six songs where the grooves are funkier, using more break beats, and pushing Yes! to an edgier and grittier place. The remix of “4321” will have you head-nodding and/or two-stepping in front of your computer in no time.

K-Os-Yes album
Hearing K-os first on “Supersstar Pt.1″ from his debut back in 2003, I knew he was someone to watch. Now with his 4th studio album Yes!, I truly enjoy hearing an artist who has grown into being. K-os manages to draw all of his influences into one project, without it sounding in the least bit contrite. Taking from rap, soul, rock, reggae, electronica, and pop and apparently less politically charged than his previous albums, Yes! is more of a fun album to make you laugh, dance, or just chill and listen. Wearing all hats in the production of Yes!, flowing between rapping strong verses and singing melodic hooks, we are never left wishing he’d return to one format over the other. It just works.

With two platinum selling albums (Atlantis and Joyful Rebellion), recipient of two Juno Awards in 2003 and 2005, and the Source Award for Best International Hip Hop Artist in 2003, Yes! is somewhat of a rebirth for K-os – on a new label, Nettwerk/Universal, the now Vancouver-based upstart label. Teaming again with Metric‘s Emily Haines and The Dear’s Murry Lightburn, these Canadian maestros create the funk rock “Uptown Girl,” my favorite on the album. Yes! can be purchased on Amazon and on K-os‘s website via iTunes.
