With support from the Red Bull Music Academy and inspiration from Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey , Flying Lotus has created Layer 3, a stunning, avant-garde stage setup. The project derives its name from its tri-layered organization, with a front transparent screen, an intermediate space for FlyLo to perform, and a back transparent screen. Psychedelic and cosmic imagery, or "epiphanies" as FlyLo calls them, pervade the paralleling visualizers. The cumulative experience is quite breathtaking. Layer 3 will serve as the audiovisual production for FlyLo's 'Until the Quiet Comes' Tour . You just finished reading [...]
Na een goede samenwerking tussen Martin en Triptan over instrumentale hiphop , besloten de heren ook gezamenlijk het nieuwe album van Flying Lotus onder de loep te nemen. Aangezien er al veel over het album in zijn geheel is gesproken, kozen de heren om het album te bespreken aan de hand van de tracks die hen opvielen. Introductie Dat Flying Lotus (aka Steven Ellison) familie is van de vrouw van John Coltrane weten we nu wel, en dat zijn vorige abums 1983, Los Angeles en met name Cosmogramma aardig [...]
"Until the Quiet Comes", LA producer Flying Lotus's fourth long-player, is a departure from its ambitious predecessor "Cosmogramma", taking on a more mature, introspective form; stepping further away from his traditional hip hop sound into jazzier territories. Album opener "All In" is a floating beat driven piece with a fragmented melody running throughout. The next few tracks stick to the same style and this is the pattern for the rest of the album, chopped up almost into separate movements. "Tiny Tortures" lifts the pace slightly with eerie synths underpinned by [...]
Flying Lotus is the granddaddy of the experimental hip-hop/electronic scene. What Sinatra was to pop, Lotus is to the genre of what many call “Beat Music”. Coming off his second record, Cosmogramma , which took him from being an underground Los Angeles beat producer to an artist working with the likes of Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and the soulstress Erykah Badu, who both appear on his new record, Flying Lotus had two years of expectations building on the release of his third LP, Until the Quiet Comes . Not only does the album [...]
Flying Lotus nye plade Until the Quiet Comes kandiderer til en af årets bedste plader, og nummeret "me Yesterday/ /Corded" er en hjerteskælvende produktion, som placerer sig i krydsfeltet mellem fortid og fremtid. Flying Lotus - me Yesterday/ /Corded Bevæbnet med en frigjort, ja en nærmest emanciperet musikalitet tager FLYLO dig med på soniske rejser, som få kontemporære artister evner at skabe. Flying Lotus er ubekendt med sædvane i sine arrangementer. Der, hvor mange producere ville rette til og editere sig imod en mere [...]

Not content with tracing an incendiary blaze through my every online manoeuvre (literally, every targeted ad is attempting to flog me Until The Quiet Comes contemporarily), no sooner has he dropped the LP than he's back into swing o' things, secreting this sublime instrumental beauty via Diplo & Friends' latest 1Xtra show. Arguably a little more elegant than anything featured on his recent fourth, Flotus sounds as though a certain associate by the urbane name of Alfred Darlington got his manicured paws on the track to spick and span whilst streaming some languid ambient. [...]
Chris Daly defines quiet differently than you or I. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, or so I hear. When you're the grand-nephew of jazz luminary Alice Coltrane (the wife of John Coltrane), and the de facto guru of the LA beat scene, people tend to expect a lot from you. Throw into the mix that your regular collaborators are Thom Yorke and Erykah Badu, and people expect the astronomical. These demands have to weigh, and as otherworldly skilled as Flying Lotus might be, he remains human. While his previous LP [...]
Experimental hip-hop producer extraordinaire Flying Lotus has already given the world three textured, breathing, patchwork albums, all brimming with mind-blowing aural complexities. Taking inspiration from the small corners of L.A. that he's come to love, he's created a brand blending off-kilter hip-hop, edgy electronics, and jazz and soul elements into his music. His fourth album, Until the Quiet Comes , is familiar while offering something slightly different: his signature sound, but wrapped in a dreamy, low-key blanket of sonic nuances. On Until the Quiet [...]
Just in time for longer nights and crispier weather, Flying Lotus scores a series of lucid sex dreams on Until the Quiet Comes.
When Until The Quiet Comes drops today, Flying Lotus fans and listeners will suck their thumbs again when they try to describe what he sounds like. It’s impossible to summarize [...] The post Flying Lotus' "Until The Quiet Comes" Doesn't Sound Like Anything, But Feels Like Something appeared first on The Smoking Section .

Flying Lotus - Until The Quiet Comes By Alex Kavanagh Almost two minutes into the video short to promote his new album , Stephen Ellison aka Flying Lotus appears like Charon at the wheel of a 67 Chevy, to shepherd away the dancing soul of a dead youth. The influence of cartoons and computer games is always present in Flylo’s work, but this proposes a more mature sense of the cinematic. After studying film in college, you can’t help but imagine the wonders that might await us [...]
As with any impulsive creative, Steven Ellison has winged it at varying altitudes of late as far as quality may be concerned. Whilst Between Friends, his contribution to the sensational Adult Swim 2012 Singles Program and a collaborative coming-together with Earl Sweatshirt proverbially stoned the ears 'til soaring high as a blissfully nonchalant kite buffeted about by the winds of levity, his rather more literally stoned spin at July's Sónar was astonishingly insipid from the Brainfeeder head honcho. However, given that Flying Lotus first ascended to the upper echelons of prominence only with previous [...]
This week marks the official release of Flying Lotus ' already acclaimed full-length, Until The Quiet Comes . To promote his efforts, the Los Angeles producer hopped across the pond to meet up with Gilles Peterson on his BBC Radio 6 show. Our fascination with this mind-bending artist ensues as he dives into interesting topics like his creative process and the rise of "dubstep." Not only do the two underground heavyweights converse for a long time, but they also get to spin some jams from the Brainfeeder catalog. For any Flying Lotus fanatic out there, there really isn't [...]
Flying Lotus' 'Until The Quiet Comes' is a stretch of vast dreamscape that's constantly evolving, changing within the listeners' minds. Warp Records, 2012 9.5 / 10.0 Flying Lotus reveals himself to be electronic music's most consistent artist. Whereas DJ Shadow once captivated many listeners and had them eating out [...]
Steve Ellison's latest opus, Until the Quiet Comes , the widely anticipated full-length follow-up to his lauded Cosmogramma LP, drops tomorrow on Warp . Ellison takes us on a tour through lush, glimmering, ephemeral altered states of consciousness–(Listen to "Dream to Me" and "Until The Colours Come.") His grooves and melodies on tracks like "Putty Boy Strut," "Sultan's Request" and "Nightcaller" reflect a child-like looseness, mischieviousness, and sense of humour. Ellison's smoky melancholic jazz-moods are prevalent in "Only If You Wanna," "Hunger", and "Phantasm." Fly Lo calls on a handful [...]
Producer extraordinaire, Flying Lotus, will be releasing his highly-anticipated LP 'Until The Quiet Comes" next week on October 2th, but the good people over at NPR have put up a stream of the complete opus, for those fans out there that just can't wait! With guest-appearances by Erykah Badu, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood, and Thundercat, FlyLo shows us a more calmer side to his instrumentals in 'Until The Quiet Comes" while also keeping the mystical aura people love hearing from him.
