While they have always straddled genres, electronic 5-piece Lotus is breaking new ground with the hip-hop infused album Monks, out September 10th (pre-order). Using the band’s own studio work as a sample source, the music will have a familiar feel to Lotus fans but recontextualized as classic hip-hop featuring Lyrics Born, Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), Mr. Lif, Doodlebug (Digable Planets) and more.

New Track: Ladi6 – “Slow Ride” ft. Invincible

New Zealand’s Ladi6 this week dropped the hypnotizing “Slow Ride” as she prepares for her upcoming album, Automatic.

The track reminds us of some early 2000s trip-hop as Detroit and New Zealand intersect on this Jeedo production featuring the indestructible Invincible on flows.

Automatic drops September 17.
