Boomkat product review for:

flying lotus / various - Echo Expansion

Produced to go along with the Dublab European tour this bumper album features some of the best Californian electronic talent right now and features all exclusive tracks pressed to wax for maximum enjoyment. Probably the most obvious draw will be the inclusion of a certain Flying Lotus, the Alice Coltrane nephew who recently dropped jaws everywhere with his 'Reset' ep for the Warp label, and certainly his contribution is without a doubt the best track on the compilation. With thick distorted Rhodes and what will soon be his trademark over-compressed beatplay he makes mincemeat out of the competition, staking out his claim on the wonky hip hop territory. Elsewhere we have a lovely retro slice of electronics from scene veteran DNTEL, some typically off-its-rocker Latin fuelled mentalism from Daedelus (and side project Adventure Time) and there's even an appearance from Life Force Trio who we'd totally forgotten about. A great record from beginning to end and something that's no doubt going to last about five minutes given the lineup - be quick.
