Experimental music producer Flying Lotus was recently a guest on the Beats 1 show OTHERtone hosted by Pharrell and Scott Vener. In their discussion, the three talk about the state of hip-hop, the ongoing change in the role of producers in hip-hop culture, their love of Aphex Twin’s music, FlyLo’s theory that music sounds better in the region where it was created and the disposability of music in today’s generation. They also weigh-in on the noticeable decline of storytelling in popular hip-hop. Check out the 11 minute discussion in the video below.
