Flying Lotus - Tea Leaf Dancers + Remixes

First track from Steven Ellison's debut on famous Warp Records - "Reset EP". It's a very simple and complex track at the same time - it really requires very skilled and experienced producer to release a track with so simple, constantly repeated beat, but yet so gripping you want to play it over and over again. It's partially Andreya Triana's fault - choosing her to sing on this one was a bullseye, her mellow and relaxing vocals pull you in like a vortex...

As a bonus I'm posting bunch of unofficial remixes made by various unsigned, underground artists from. First on the block is remix made by Orlando Marshall, producing under a name BusCrates 16-Bit Ensemble. He's version is even more tripping than the original, except the vocals it's hard to find any points of parity with the original from FlyLo, which in my opinion is very good, shows Orlando's ingeniousness with creating good beats, which you can find more about on your own by checking out rest of his tracks on his soundcloud page.

Next one is the remix that astonished me most of all, made by HayZee - great sounds, great synths, gives the track a whole new quality:

Last one is a remix coming from Mark F. aka Polychrome, his version is least of a broken beat from all, great hats and arrangements going on instead:
