What Do You Get? First, a glimpse into hisAphelion EP, with chilled-out groove “John Cage,” followed by a riveting live version of Lindsey Buckingham’s emotionally charged “Go Insane.” He then digs into eccentric Japanese avant-pop (Tujiko Noriko), glistening ambient-pop (Ametsub), brassy African soul (Yta Jourias), and a few of his biggest hip-hop inspirations—Madlib and Madvillain.
