Hear it now:
Flying Lotus 'Cosmogramma'
‘Cosmogramma’ is an album fueled by grief, love, the psychedelic and otherworldly, an effort to decode the world beyond what we can see. His crossroads moment birthed the kind of beauty he always sought to articulate. Upon release, it was tagged with every genre imaginable, and none could quite thoroughly encapsulate what the Flying Lotus project had accomplished in one breathtaking feat. It’s jazz, electronic, experimental, hip-hop, fusion, IDM, avant-garde everything. It’s an epic, a “space opera,” the crown jewel risen from the L.A. beat scene.

How we keep your records spinning.
Discover new music

Discover new music.

We spend our days digging for great albums. And once we’ve found that gem of a record, we do everything we can to help you appreciate the music. From gorgeous album art to world-class listening guides, you’ll find yourself discovering something new every time you listen.
Special editions

Score special-edition records (available nowhere else).

We’ve got a knack for crafting the most unique, definitive version of any album – old or new. Remastering and reissuing a lesser-known classic album with artist-authored liner notes? We do that. Collaborating with an emerging artist to release their music and tell their story? We do that too. Either way you cut it, we’re creating musical experiences that you won’t find anywhere else.
Special editions
Swaps

Swap it out.

With Swaps, you can exchange a featured record with one from the VMP Archive or from a collection of our store titles. Because after fine-tuning your taste over a lifetime, trusting someone else to curate your record collection can be scary. We get it, and we want to help you try new things without forcing a title on you that’s not a good fit.
No contracts or strings. You can cancel at any time.
