Flying Lotus - Aqua TV Show Show Theme Song
Flying Lotus' love affair with Cartoon Network continues to pay dividends to fans of gloriously weird music and animation. The Los Angeles-bred beat auteur teamed up with his bass-wielding Brainfeeder bro Thundercat to record the latest theme for Adult Swim's Aqua Teen Hunger Force, which, as part of a running gag, will be known as Aqua TV Show Show for its tenth season. While the Until the Quiet Comes producer got an early break when the late-night animation block began using his beats as bumper music, recent history has seen him composing end credits music for Adventure Time and participating in the Adult Swim Singles Series.
He explained that, "[Aqua Teen creator] Dave Willis hit me up one day and asked if I was interested and I told him that it had to be me. Golden age MC Schoolly D provided the theme music for the first seven seasons, while Josh Homme provided the Season 8 song, and Schoolly returned backed by Mariachi El Bronx in 2012.
