A truly rare talent whose inspired mix of organic hip hop, maniacal synths, chest-punching bass and deep, intricate electronic textures is making waves and influencing a new generation of electronic producers worldwide.
Of a rich musical lineage, his grandmother wrote songs for Diana Ross & The Supremes and Motown, and his aunt was beloved jazz luminary Alice Coltrane.
His list of early fans reads like a who's who of progressive pop music; Wu Tang’s RZA, with whom he has just finished a UK tour, Massive Attack, who personally invited him to play Future Sounds Of Hip Hop at Meltdown, and Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, proclaiming him as a major influence on his band’s stunning album ‘Third’.
Flying Lotus is no faceless producer, instead building an awesome reputation as the most crowd-smashing live electronic act you’ve ever seen – “Madlib dancing with Man Parrish… A warp five gospel of the mind” - Plan B.
Gorgeous, premium packaging across a deluxe CD with art booklet, card wallet and varnish slipcase, and gatefold double vinyl.
