Mikael Wood talks with George Clinton, Flying Lotus and Thundercat — funk visionaries from different generations — ahead of their joint Sept. 17 concert at the Hollywood Bowl.
Perhaps telling of my taste or opinion of the contemporary music landscape, but this meeting of minds is the thing I’m genuinely most excited about in 2017. Not only are FlyLo and Thundercat relative vanguards of trans-genre impressionistic creative output, but they are carrying on the legacy under the guidance of one of the people who laid the gauntlet down in the first place – which once again singles out GC as a visionary.
Props where props are due! Keeping it locked for the new album.
