A beautiful piece about my friend (& incredible jazz musician) Austin Peralta, who passed away recently

"You are talking about a kid who was only 22," says Brainfeeder’s chief, venerated producer Flying Lotus. "I remember being 22. I mean, I don’t feel like I had that much to say. He has a lifetime of character in his music at 22. So who knows what he would have sounded like after he had his heart broken, or lost a loved one himself — going through a darker place within yourself and coming out of it with a different sound."

"He never had the opportunity to do that, but he also never had the opportunity to turn into an old man and nobody gives a fuck what you are doing. He got to go out being like all these people he looked up to. What the fuck — you got to leave like a fucking legend, Austin. I’m too old already to leave like a legend. He got to go out like Bird. He got to really go for it."
