Mi track favorito del " Cosmogromma ", "MmmHmm", ya tiene video y esta vez la Warp Records comisionó al estudio Special Problems para su realización. Campbell Hooper y Joel Kefal han logrado un video que, amalgamado con las melodías de Steven Ellison y la voz de Thundercat, resultó ser una pieza realmente emotiva.
His latest album Cosmogramma has been astonishing the musical establishment since its release at the beginning of this month and here Flying Lotus talks to Apollo Magazine on the subject of influence and inspiration. The video is short and sweet, so I shall keep my copy similarly concise. Oldsy's the man to talk to about the album anyway, wherever he is... Buy Flying Lotus tunes at 7digital.
Tim Exile , al igual que muchos de sus paisanos británicos, es un músico talentoso superdotado de genialidad sin precedentes e hiperactividad insaciable, de ahí la decisión de lanzar su nuevo videoblog y la inquietud de buscar que su computadora sea hipersensible a su voz. Si no conocías a Tim, hace no mucho se presentó en el D.F. junto con sus colegas de disquera Flying Lotus y Jimmy Edgar . Lo suyo es la "música interactiva" y hacer beats únicamente con un micrófono, uno que otro controlador MIDI (usualmente diseñado o intervenido por él, [...]
The opening moments of Cosmogramma are a rapid ascent into the future world of Flying Lotus (Steven Ellison). Once arrival is complete, the listener is instantly enveloped in a busy urban-metropolis of jazzy robots wet with electronic rain and percussion-driven hovercraft speeding over head. The forty-five minutes of music that comprise the album are a seamless whole. There are separate tracks in here, but each is more like a “scene” than entirely disparate songs. These scenes are glimpses into Lotus’ thoughts on music and his place in life. As Lotus told music journalist Piotr Orlov this year: “You [...]
Via: L.A. Times In October 2008, while Steven Ellison's mother lay dying in a hospital bed, he was at her side recording her. The young L.A.-based musician, who records abstract electronic music as Flying Lotus, hadn't been especially close to his mother until her later years. But when finally faced with the weight of the impending loss, [...]

I got my hands on the most anticipated leak out there a few nights ago and am only now recovering enough to write a few words about it. Flying Lotus completely flipped the electronic music scene on its head with the release of his last LP, "Los Angeles". So how exactly do you follow something like that up? Well, after a few years of countless imitators trying to recreate the magic from that album, Flying Lotus decided to come out with another album that none of us could see coming no matter how hard we [...]
Flying Lotus is finished his acclaimed masterpiece and is ready to share it with the rest of us. This album is apparently one seamless piece of music, an opus, a journey through an astral landscape. It's been described as a "space opera" amongst other things - an appropriate tittle that suggests the perplexing scale of this cosmic body of unearthly music. I'm not quite sure how he's done it, one can only guess and make assumptions as to how he has crafted cosmogramma into a single entity, having also curated many guest appearances, including a collaboration with Thom York on [...]
The guys at Warp are starting the hype early for the much anticipated album "Cosmogramma" from the king of the Brainfeeder cult Flying Lotus . The long player is due out on the 3rd of May and is being described as a space opera! The reason for this description appears to come from the diverse influences on the record and the vast scope of styles and soundscapes. The long list of collaborators on the album include Thom Yorke , Erykah Badu , Outkast and string arranger Miguel [...]
If you are a fan of Flying Lotus , then owning this mix is an absolute must. Put together by the one and only Gaslamp Killer , this mix takes you on a journey through a decade of Flying Lotus's expansive production. Included in this mix are rare unreleased tracks, b-sides, and some of his newer work. This should tide you over until the release of Flying Lotus's forthcoming album "Cosmogramma", out on April 20th 2010 by [...]
Flying Lotus is completely ridiculous. That's not even meant as an insult, but rather a compliment directed toward his work ethic and productivity. He has recently been busy heading his label, Brainfeeder , which features artists such as The Gaslamp Killer, Daedelus, and Ras G. In the last month of 2009, he released his Lil Wayne remixes and even contributed a particularly scary-sounding remix of Gucci Mane's "Photoshoot" to the Adult Swim ATL RMX album. Stones Throw Records recently announced that Flying Lotus will be contributing to their new 103 EP series The [...]
The Christmas season might be winding down, but the presents just keep rolling in. This time, it's the one and only Flying Lotus filling the role of the bearded fat man and offering up a tidy little mix tape speaker stuffer, entitled A Decade Of Flying Lotus. As you can guess, Decade is pretty much exactly what it says on the tin - namely, a collection of beats and treats that FL has been working on over the last 10 years. According to Flying Lotus, he "felt it was time [...]

Mary Anne Hobbs does for electronica on her BBC Radio 1 show what John Peel did for everything, and for years now she has been delivering L.A.’s best beatmakers to the world. When she first came to L.A. as a girl, she wore a glitter bikini and drove a motorcycle to Hollywood bars to drink with Megadeth, but tonight she’ll be doing a special DJ set at Low End Theory. This interview by Chris Ziegler.
