Kahlil Joseph and Flying Lotus follow up their Sundance-winning promo video that accompanied Flying Lotus‘s 2012 album Until The Quiet Comes with another mesmerising collaboration: a meditation “on the origins of an All-Black Rodeo in Oklahoma”. Wildcat is a state of mind, an experiment inspired by the composition and performance of jazz music. The characters that populate this world are actual cowboys and envisioned angels of Grayson, Oklahoma. For an other time Kahlil’s film far surpasses our expectations rendering you speechless at its production values, cinematography and narrative are staggeringly powerful.

What Matters Most – the L.A. based film collective that counts Joseph Kahlil as a member, approaches the process of image-making and story-telling as craftspeople who believe in, and wish to improve upon, the film-making canon, handed down by generations of filmmakers. What Matters Most above all, is a co-operative of artists looking to elevate each other’s work through a collective process.

Flying Lotus is a producer of electronic music and hip-hop beats, being at the forefront of the new wave of beatmakers. He is also known for his abstract and sometimes jazz-tinted style – not coincedental when you think that he is the great-nephew of Alice Coltrane, John Coltrane’s wife. He is the founder and leader of the Brainfeeder collective, which includes such artists as Samiyam, Teebs and Daedelus. Flying Lotus released his first album, 1983 on Plug Research Records in 2006, and his next three albums, Los Angeles, Cosmogramma and previous year’s Until The Quiet Comes, were released through the acclaimed Warp.
