Flying Lotus - Reset EP
Flying Lotus' "1983" was one of my favorite releases of 2006. With Reset he builds on the same type of sound scapes he was working with on that album only now he adds a much more prominent bass and drum workout into every song. It is an interesting take on his previous sound and it makes the longevity of my interest in him stretch a little longer. This is excellent instrumental hip hop up there with the greats like Shadow, Madlib, and PB Wolf. Check it out.
