Flying Lotus Releases, Attacks
- Words: Fred Miketa
On October 2, Flying Lotus' Warp debut Reset hit the streets. But unlike most EPs, this bleep-heavy offering is being celebrated with Attack, an interactive videogame set to Lotus’ spacey hip-hop. Available through the producer’s website, Attack is essentially a recreation of Space Invaders, with the ability to send missles flying into weird pyramids, ghosts, and the occasional dusty star. Not unlike the arcade-styled games of yore, Attack tracks highest scores and can be embedded into your website. Now, how’s that for promotion?
Release is out now on Warp.
