this transcendental voyage into the afterlife perfectly balances the producer’s hip-hop origins with his unique strand of psychedelic jazz fusion.
‘you’re dead’ might just be steve ellison’s most inventive & virtuoso performance to date. His distinctive, shuffling beats underpin an album built from glittering, cosmic melodies & stylistic leaps that - while often erratic - never break up the album’s all important flow. The most noticeable difference to his previous work is the inclusion of rappers – Kendrick lamar, snoop dogg & his alter-ego captain murphy all provide essential verses & solidify the thanatoptic theme of the record. Other collaborators include herbie hancock (now surely flylo’s closest musical comparison), angel deradoorian &, of course, thundercat – whose popping basslines add immeasurably to the album’s stoned, rolling groove. “breathtaking in scope & dastardly in execution” 4/5 – mojo.
