Bilal’s “Levels” Video

FULL SCREEN
The Sounds of VTech / Bilal Levels

Check out the new video from Bilal‘s latest album Airtight’s Revenge, the directorial debut by highly acclaimed musician Flying Lotus. This video for “Levels” is an appropriate spaced-out trip with multi-dimensional planes, omniscient third eyes, and naturally, Erykah Badu as the goddess. The video also includes a cameo from Thundercat and the producer of the song, Shafiq Husayn. Congratulations to Bilal on his Grammy nomination for the song dedicated to his children, “Little One,” another great single from Airtight’s Revenge.

GPWW 8/30/10: TOKiMONSTA Mix

GPWW this week features a mix by TOKiMONSTA, Los Angeles DJ and beatsmith who started out as an unfocused classical piano student. That piano training became her musical foundation as she grew to make layered productions with live and digital instrumentation, dusty old vinyl, and whatever else she could find. Signed to Flying Lotus‘ imprint, Brainfeeder, she’s fearless and energetic, having performed with Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer, and many other of her fellow beat makers.

The first half of the radio show has some old favorites and new artists, including Esperanza Spalding, Crue-L, Fela Kuti, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Jazztronik, Ana Tijoux and more.
