Flying Lotus, a recent addition to BBC Radio 1’s lineup of resident DJs, commemorated his first night at his post by exclusively premiering an unreleased version of the Kendrick Lamar-assisted groove “Never Catch Me.”

Other than the stripped-down instrumentation, the song is nearly identical to what appeared on the Los Angeles producer-rapper’s You’re Dead album. If anything, this iteration of the cut will show listeners how much a record changes in post-production.
