6. Flying Lotus – “Sultan’s Request”

I can’t believe it took me this long to get to our man Flying Lotus who’s Until The Quiet Comes was one of the most anticipated projects of the year. There were so many great cuts on the record (the whole thing is good, really, read our review if you don’t know), but I chose “Sutlan’s Request,” probably for it’s dubstep quality. I had a chance to see FlyLo perform a few times this year and the visuals for his live show are quite an experience. I think 2012 proved that this man, and his Brainfeeder label, are not only here to stay, but are leading the way. R.I.P. Austin Peralta who played on this song. We lost you too soon. An unofficial but authorized music video plays above.

    love the Okay Fam, but is the new Future site only gonna cover trap music? i think 90% of the songs in this list had the same vibe to em. there is a wide spectrum to be explored in the future music playground and it goes well beyond clubby bass drops.

      thanks for the feedback. I wrote the list and prefaced and admit its trap heavy. 2012 was the year of future trap, although ive been into that stuff forever. I didnt explore as much music as I would have liked in 2013 but these were the tracks and artists that stood out to me. Okayfuture will continue to have all the latest and best trap and post dubstep, but way more than that too.

        thanks for the reply. certainly wasn’t knocking. i discover so many great artists and dope music from OKP. i’m looking forward to discovering what this new wing reveals.

    If you could put all these on ONE PAGE that would make things a hell of a lot faster for those of us with slow connections, and just 100 times more convenient for EVERYBODY. Thanks!
