Product Details
Flying Lotus (born Steven Ellison, and affectionately referred to as FlyLo by fans and critics) is an experimental multi-genre producer, DJ, and laptop musician, who also runs his own label, Brainfeeder. His debut album 1983 is a dedication to his generation as well as a reflection of the time, was released on Plug Research Records in 2006. Consequently he signed with Warp Records, released the groundbreaking Reset EP (including the subterranean soul knocker Tea Leaf Dancers) and his breakthrough second album, Los Angeles, last year.

His style in drawn from many genres (hip hop, jazz, electronic and Brazilian music), his beats have a hazy ambient sound, his percussion is purposely slightly off time creating a messier, more organic atmosphere. Often likened to producers such as Madlib, Jneiro Jarel, and J Dilla, he has a distinctly unique style, instrumental hip-hop with an experimental edge and a cinematic, soulful vibe, much more akin to Brainfeeder label mates Gaslamp Killer, SamiYam, and Ras_G as well as partners in crime from wider LA community like Blu, Daedelus, and Muhsinah. Recently he has also made a name for himself as a remixer, reworking the likes of Dabrye, Kanye West, Kelis, Madvillain, Martyn, Mr. Oizo, Nelly Furtado, RJD2...and has also produced tracks for cult animation channel Adult Swim. Oh yea, and his great aunt is the late Alice Coltrane. Homo Universalis? Pretty Much!
