Gaslamp Killer Heliocentrics Mixtape – HELIO GLK

Gaslamp Killer is a DJ/producer signed to Flying Lotus' left-field label Brainfeeder and co-founder of the famous LA instrumental hip hop showcase "Low End Theory."  The Heliocentrics are a London-based psyche-jazz collective led by the drummer/producer Malcolm Catto who have collaborated with many Hip Hop and Jazz artists including Madlib, DJ Shadow and Ethiopian Jazz musician Mulatu Astatke.  GLK has been a longtime fan of The Heliocentrics with Catto being a huge influence on him (GLK is also a drummer) so this mix isn't much of a surprise and has been a longtime coming.  The mix includes GLK re-edits of some of the tracks from the Helio's new album 13 Degrees of Reality, and the series of EPs that Now-Again Records will launch in 2014. He also mixes in some music from 60s ensembles that influenced the band.  You can download at the link below as well as purchase the limited 12 inch of the project.
