Well here’s one from the vaults for you. This collaboration between Flying Lotus and LA beat-scene veteran Dibiase apparently dates back to ’05, around the time of FlyLo’s unofficial July Heat beat-tape. Although its exact origins are obscure, Dibiase had this to say about where the track “U Never Give” came from:

remember flylo got some records from france i believe. i know it was somewhere overseas. but i went over to his lab with the mpc and got the choppin this was one of the many from the vault. this might been on that august heat tape. i only notice the july heat online. some very rare shit !!!

In all honesty the unreleased gem harks back to a still more distant era of warm, beautifully-rendered vocal samples and steady, bangin’ looped drums. The age of Dilla. Have a listen for yourself below and let us know what you think:
