Flying Lotus And Denzel Curry Ask Fans To Add Reimagined Lyrics to ‘Black Balloons Reprise’

Here is your chance to make a record with Flying Lotus, well, sort of.

By Bubba Krishnamurti

Warp Records artist Flying Lotus is well known for adding an endless set of collaborations to his works. Now, the producer wants his fans to make contributions of their own. Along with Florida rapper Denzel Curry, Fly-lo has launched the#BlackBalloonsChallenge.  Fans are asked to reinterpret lyrical portions of the instrumental track of “Black Balloons Reprise,” from the latest record Flamagra.

Flying Lotus has called on fans to “enter the world of Flamagra (Instrumentals)” and “re-imagine” the track. Contest entrants are encouraged to  “Download the 16 bar instrumental via SoundCloud here & create your own flow to the accompaniment. Submit video or audio of yourself performing your bars on SoundCloud, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or TikTok & use the hashtag #BLACKBALLOONSCHALLENGE to win various prizes, including a Flying Lotus merch package, a free Pro-Unlimited subscription from Soundcloud, and the chance to have your remix featured on socials by Lotus & Curry.”

The SoundCloud summarizes the contest:  “In celebration of the one year anniversary of the landmark album, Flamagra, Flying Lotus has returned with a new and intimate perspective of that epic body of work; Flamagra (Instrumentals). The album is an exploration of Lotus’ mastery of production techniques & virtuosic musicianship that allows the featured players of his world to take center stage. Now Lotus challenges you to enter his world & re-imagine the single ‘Black Balloons Reprise,’ originally featuring Denzel Curry.”

**Competition closes on Wed July 15th, 2020 (midnight PT)**
