‘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.

The electronic world needs Flying Lotus right now more than ever. He's been branded some kind of wonderkid, and in my mind that judgement is well valid, like Richard James before him, like Squarepusher. On this new gorgeously presented EP he can can noodle but it's all wrapped up in this hyper melodic & dreamy soundscapery that you cannot helped being yanked in by! Check the breathtaking delights on offer! The beats just tumble, flip 'n' clatter, synth lines wander deliriously into extended excitable codas & stoned giddyness! This guy does fresh, genuinely exciting shit - his LPs are each a beautifully constructed sonic collage, his EPs are more comprised of spiritually enriching, deftly zen club tracks. A true master, don't listen to the bores that dis him for being all over the shop & cluttered. He's proper future jazz braindance with an adventurous, yet everyman appeal.
