Flying Lotus welcomes Kamasi Washington - who features on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly - to his Brainfeeder label with this monumental full-length entitled The Epic. Much like Kendrick and FlyLo, Washington produces LPs that exist somewhere between the realms of demi-opera and populist. Clocking in with 17 all surpassing the 7 minute mark, The Epic explores areas of cosmic jazz, freeform saxophone-led composition and a rotation of far-reaching influences to build an odyssey that effortlessly spans across almost 3 hours with the help of a a 32-piece orchestra and a 20-member choir. Like the rest of the Brainfeeder roster, pigeonholing the Kamasi Washington is a truly impossible task. The Epic invites you to embrace the ambition and lose yourself in the grandeur.
