Premiere: Flamingosis teases upcoming album with ‘Cosmic Feeling’ video [Q&A]

Five years after his last album, future funk favorite Flamingosis finally has a forthcoming follow up. To date, Flamingosis’ music has been primarily sample-based, but his upcoming studio album marks a switch towards live instrumentation. “Cosmic Feeling” is the third single giving fans a taste of the new production style following “Wild Summer” and “Daymaker.” Accompanying the new single is an ’80s-inspired animated music video, offering a visual companion as smooth as the instrumental. In addition to the live studio musicians, Flamingosis samples the 1979 classic “If You Want It” by Niteflyte to give the track a warm nostalgic feel.
