Curt SteeleEnglish 20003/26/13Earl Sweatshirt Featuring Flying Lotus: a Show of Attitude and IntimacyThe feeling in your stomach, the center of life, the sacred Om that holds your soul together. It pulsates down to your core and resonates throughout your consciousness, hypnotizing with the comfortable intensity of its grasp. The rave kids wait in the parking lot put on their neon jumpsuits and furry boots, discuss with their friends about nothing deeper than what designer drugs they want to eat next: their business was outside. This deep sound frequency was emitted from speakers manned by a hooded mastermind in a small ballroom at New Orleans's Buku Art and Music Project on March 8, 2013. Overlooking the Mississippi River, illuminated by the city lights of downtown New Orleans, a gathering of the most musically aware young adults bobbed left and right, absorbing the energy that kicked off the Buku experience.

Flying Lotus at this moment looked at the crowd, smiled, and dropped "Yonkers" by Tyler the Creator, Earl Sweatshirt's partner and collaborator in their rap group Odd Future. With a steady head bob and immediate song recognition, the crowd started rapping every word.
