DESCRIPTION
There is a general feeling that what's been done can never be recreated, and in era of post-Dilla producers, no one wants the comparison and most people dare not make it. So, what is originally meant to be a compliment that is hard to live up to, becomes an unwilling attempt for and artist to remain original, despite the overwhelming similarities. It's next-gen producers like Flying Lotus, Dr. Who Dat and Dabrye who carry this burden lately, and have to shake off the ''next Dilla'' tags they are often given. Not because they don't want them, but I can see where it would be a problem, because it appears as if Dilla created his own genre since his passing, and that genre could be called Dilla-esque. My only question, is it really such a bad thing? For his Warp debut Flying Lotus takes his unique brand of electronica, which is derived from many other traditionally sampled genres in hip hop such as funk, soul and jazz, to levels barely touched on with last Fall's Reset EP. The DJ and producer gained momentum in the underground LA scene with heavily passed around self made remixes, as his music from debut album 1983 even landed spots on Adult Swim promos. Los Angeles shows an extreme amount of progressive growth from his last album to the next, and is a true sign that this genius in the making has only just begun to show us what he is capable of. The 2010 pressing has a download card enclosed.
