Flying Lotus
Cosmogramma
(Warp)
Releasing: 4 May

Classifying Flying Lotus into any particular genre or sound is almost impossible. Hailing from Winnetka, California the DJ/producer has made a name on, what can be best described as “experimental hip-hop beats”. However, elements of funk, rock, R&B and soul also creep into these sonic landscapes where he mixes thick synthesizers with sound effects best suited for the farthest reaches of outer space. His new album, Cosmogramma, features guest appearances from Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and jazz great Ravi Coltrane. It’s currently streaming over on Flying Lotus’ MySpace.
