Producer/musician Flying Lotus is adding an extra half hour of music to his curated FlyLo FM station in Grand Theft Auto V‘s upcoming PlayStation 4, Windows, and Xbox One re-release. The new music will include exclusive tracks from Doom, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony’s Krayzie Bone, and, of course, Flying Lotus himself (via Pitchfork).
FlyLo FM features experimental/indie hip-hop and electronic music from the likes of Aphex Twin, Tyler the Creator, and Outkast. “I was really proud of the first bit of it,” Flying Lotus said in a recent live stream with Rockstar Games, “but I still felt there was so much more to say, though, so I’m really excited about that.”
Flying Lotus’ station isn’t the only one getting a revamp for the new release. Earlier in 2014, English model/actor Cara Delevingne tweeted that she was going back to Rockstar to update her Non Stop Pop FM station, implying at least new interstitial recordings, if not new tracks.
The nephew of Alice and John Coltrane, Flying Lotus (aka Steve Ellison) has released five albums of experimental electronic music to increasing critical acclaim since 2006. He also, among countless other projects and collaborations, produced a large portion of the bumper music from Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block during that time, and has recently begun rapping under the name Captain Murphy, which he took from the character of the same name in Adult Swim’s Sealab 2021.
