Jose James "Blackmagic (Produced by Flying Lotus)"
FlyLo fanatics around the globe are freaking about the appearance of his new Cosmogramma album next week, but folks are seriously sleeping on the fact that he produced several tracks on Blackmagic, the debut album from neo-soul crooner Jose James. While these songs may not be as otherworldly as Flying Lotus' efforts under his own name, "Blackmagic" proves that his jazz- and soul-inflected beats do provide a solid underpinning to James' silky smooth voice. A deluxe version of Blackmagic, which includes additional remixes and a non-album cut called "Visions of Violet" that was also produced by Flying Lotus, is available now.
