Flying Lotus
Presents INFINITY “Infinitum” - Maida Vale Session

Flying Lotus 'Presents INFINITY “Infinitum” - Maida Vale Session' is one of ten radio sessions being released by Warp Records on the occasion of their big three-oh. Compared to the rest of the label Flying Lotus is too old to be new guard and too new to be old guard. Nonetheless, his hip hop abstractions are a big reason why Warp is still so relevant. 

Flying Lotus
You’re Dead!

Steve Ellison, the experimental wizard of instrumental hip-hop (who occasionally moonlights as the rapper Captain Murphy) is back with his first FlyLo release since 2012's 'Until The Quiet Comes'. Ever popular with the world of music around him, 'You're Dead!' has a whole new roster of features and contributors to its name, including jazz-funk legend Herbie Handcock, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar, to name a few. Of course, FlyLo will also be joined by Brainfeeder pal Thundercat.

Flying Lotus
Flamagra

Fresh off making people throw up in the cinema with Kuso, Flying Lotus is back at it again with his latest album Flamagra. As always, the album is a frenetic maelstrom of hip-hop, R&B, jazz, soul, funk, beats, and whatever else Mr Lotus managed to put on between joints. He's also managed to fit in enough guests for a decent music festival with Solange, Tierra Whack and George Clinton appearing as well as lots (and lots) more.

Flying Lotus
Reset

'Reset' was the first EP and second major release from genre-bending producer Flying Lotus. Following '1983', it showed a more rhythmic and off-kilter sound which would be implemented on future releases. It's a spacey, psychedelic mish-mash of hip hop and left-field electronic sounds, released on the Warp label all the way back in 2007.

Flying Lotus
Cosmogramma

While previous releases like ‘Los Angeles’ had made Flying Lotus (Steven Ellison) a buzz-act in the electronic underground, the project’s third LP ‘Cosmogramma’ made it clear that we had a special talent on our hands. This 2010 record is boundlessly creative, with Ellison incorporating spiritual jazz, free music, new-age composition, glitch and a hatful of other styles into his hip-hop-tronica core. Most impressive of all that, for all its high-falutin genre concerns, ‘Cosmogramma’ remains an extremely accessible record, full of thrills and spills. Thom Yorke features on ‘... And The World Laughs With You’ - not the last time he’d be seen on a FlyLo release.

Flying Lotus
Until The Quiet Comes

2012’s ‘Until The Quiet Comes’, the fourth studio LP from Flying Lotus, represents a hugely important step in the producer-composer’s career. While previous FlyLo releases had touched on jazz - both earthly and spiritual - these influences had largely been incorporated to serve the producer’s ultra-whacked brand of hip-hop and neo-IDM. However, on ‘Until The Quiet Comes’ we find the one born Steven Ellison creating notably lusher work that draws heavily on the sounds of Alice Coltrane and Sun Ra. Synths and beats still play a part, but the way that Ellison prioritises harmony and reverie here paved the way not only for subsequent FlyLo triumphs like ‘You’re Dead!’ but also the great records we’d get from The Comet Is Coming and Floating Points later in the decade. Thundercat, Jonny Greenwood and Thom Yorke contribute.

Flying Lotus
Pattern+Grid World

‘Pattern+Grid World’ is not one of Flying Lotus’ major works, but that isn’t to say that the 2010 EP isn’t still a damn fine salvo of astral-plane hip-hop production from the prodigal Steven Ellison. Emerging in the wake of his breakthrough LP ‘Cosmogramma’, ‘Pattern+Grid World’ spends just shy of twenty minutes spiralling through a collection of beat escapades which sound like Madlib sparring with Shabazz Palaces out in the cosmos.

Flying Lotus
Los Angeles

After turning heads with a few releases in the mid-2000s, 2008’s Los Angeles is the record with which Flying Lotus really cemented his reputation as one of the premier producers of his generation. The LP’s vivid, squelching brand of leftfield hip-hop blasted the sound of Madlib and J Dilla into outer-space, setting the tone for the Brainfeeder imprint FlyLo would boot up in the same year. Gonjasufi, Samiyam and Matthewdavid are among those who contribute.
