Descent Into Madness

Album: You're Dead! (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This was Flying Lotus' frequent collaborator bassist and vocalist Thundercat's song, but the Californian electronic musician hijacked it. "I begged him to let me finish this song," he said. "I had visions instantly."

    FlyLo, however, credits his friend for more than just the song. "None of this album would be possible without Thundercat," he said.
