Flying Lotus has unveiled a new video for “Remind U” directed by Winston Hacking. Earlier this year, Steven Ellison celebrated 2019’s Flamagra with Flamagra Instrumentals, a "bold reimagining" of last year’s release.

Initially featured as an instrumental track on Flamagra, “Remind U” takes on fresh production styling in the new music video.

Revisiting the worlds established in the 2017’s “Post Requisite”, Ellison and Hacking have teamed up again to explore a deconstructed, yellow submarine through a “stream of consciousness video collage” garden of heightened surrealism. The video “recreates the perspective of a curious child,” Hacking says, building a world that is “ugly and chaotic but, simultaneously, beautiful and hopeful.”

Last month, Ellison invited fans to reimagine his work with the #BlackBalloonsChallenge, where he invited listeners to remix the track using stems downloaded from his Soundcloud.

Flamagra Instrumentals is out now on limited edition 2LP with Animated Zeotrope Slipmat, CD & Digital.
