Flying Lotus is on the verge of making a handful of big-time moves. He’ll be debuting his follow-up LP to Cosmogramma at Coachella in April (a double debut for a double-weekend fest?). His production will be featured on the Untitled EP, set to be released on Friday, from Odd Future’s Hodgy Beats. And his label, Brainfeeder, is shaking things up. Brainfeeder brought home Label of the Year honors at the 2012 Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards.

This Brainfeeder Sampler 2012, released at the end of January, came off the heels of that latter victory. Therein is a collection of stunning, surprisingly diverse electronic tracks. There are some familiar tracks–Thundercat’s belated tune’d “For Love (I Come Your Friend)” and Taylor McFerrin’s recently V-Day Mix’d “Place in My Heart” are both there–but most of these songs were new to me, at least.

Highlights include Jeremiah Jae’s “$easons” (which sounds like a drowsy, stoned N.E.R.D. track), Teebs’ whimsy “Jahara”, and the exotic “When I’m In Awe” from The Gaslamp Killer ft. Gonjasufi. This is one remarkable collection, and you need only an email address for the download. Watch the video for “$easons” below and catch the tracklist after the jump:
