Ras Arcane Joins Lotus in Philly on New Year’s Eve

Lotus were joined by Ras Arcane during their New Year’s Eve show at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. The local emcee joined the group for a rendition of “Cloud 9,” track that appears on their 2013 hip-hop release Monks (Ras Arcane also appears on the album version of the song).

Lotus celebrated the New Year with a two-night at the Electric Factory earlier this week. Their December 30 show featured takes on classics like “Suitcases,” “Spiritualize” and “Disappears in a Blood-Red Sky,” as well as a number of newer tunes and covers of The Beastie Boys’ “Sabrosa” and Breakbot’s “Baby I’m Yours.”

In addition to the Ras Arcane sit in, the December 31 show included a number of oldies and newer material, along with covers of the traditional “Auld Lang Syne,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Europe’s “The Final Countdown.” The show also featured a recurring rendition of “Machine Gun” that made a few appearances during the second set
