It isn't farfetched to infer that California native and producer extraordinaire Flying Lotus was inspired by Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala's ahead-of-its-time underground opus Deltron 3030.  Now DJ Skarface has stepped to the forefront to reinterpret the classic album by mashing it up with various album cuts, demos and remixed from FlyLo.

West Coast spitter Blu returns with the latest leak from his forthcoming double album, Good To Be Home, which is already a shoe-in contender for album cover of the year (yes, I know that it's only May).  The production on "The Return" crackles like a vintage 45 and is the perfect foreground for Blu to wax poetics on top of.  Good To Be Home drops next Tuesday.
