Flying Lotus – “See Thru 2 U” (Feat. Erykah Badu)

And this morning, we get to hear Badu's contribution on the dizzy, jazz-inflected "See Thru 2 U," on which… More »

Flying Lotus – “Between Friends” (Feat. Earl Sweatshirt & Captain Murphy)

Here's the latest from Adult Swim's Singles Program series, a track featuring Earl Sweatshirt and "Captain Murphy" (Maybe Tyler? Maybe just a slowed-down Earl?) rapping over some thick, heavy-lidded production from Flying Lotus. It brings to mind the DOOM/Danger Mouse collab The Mouse And The Mask, a connection that's reinforced by the… More »

Flying Lotus Until The Quiet Comes Details

Astral-plane beat-freak Flying Lotus has, in the past few years, ascended past all his bass-music peers into some sort of space-jazz infinity, and he's getting ready to release an album that could potentially push him to still another level. FlyLo's LP Until The Quiet Comes, due this fall, will have guest appearances from Thom Yorke… More »

Pitchfork Festival 2012: Grimes, Danny Brown, Sleigh Bells & More

At ginormous festivals like Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, it's pretty tough to craft a narrative -- when there's something like 200 bands playing over a weekend, it's next to impossible to really sew a singular thread through the weekend's performances. Pitchfork Music Festival is much smaller -- 45 bands in three days -- so, it's a… More »

Flying Lotus Disses Beach House

Flying Lotus and Beach House both make supremely chill, critically acclaimed music. Both have probably soundtracked a whole lot of drug experiences. Also, FlyLo once remixed Gucci Mane, and Beach House once covered Gucci. But that doesn't mean they're best friends. More »

Flying Lotus – “Lullaby” & “Heave (n) mix2″

Hear, here: two new songs from Flying Lotus -- "Lullaby"'s equatorial groove and dank electronics giving way to baby's crib musicbox bells; "Heave (n) mix2"'s denser and less rhythmically linear vocal-sampling fusion -- both via Cos, both great:… More »

How Independent Rockers Celebrated #IndependenceDay

How did you celebrate July 4th? On a rooftop BBQ listening to our summer mix? Maybe you stayed in and watched old episodes of Hoarders on Roku? Maybe I stayed in and did that. There is no way to know. But all across this great country we do know there were fireworks to be… More »

Flying Lotus Debuts “Golden Axe” With Live Band On BBC

Steven FlyLo Ellison recorded a session at the BBC's Maida Vale studio with Gilles Peterson on hosting and interview duties. Stereogum Top 50 LP Cosmogramma's saxophonic flights and often mesmerizing jazz/beat-music fusion seem to have fueled the lineup of the live band Ellison brought with him for the set, with the instrumental outlier being… More »

Flying Lotus – “Kill Your Co-Workers” Video

Everybody's work-week anthem "Kill Your Co-Workers" comes from Flying Lotus’s Cosmogramma follow-up, the seven-song Pattern + Grid World. This animated video was put together by Beeple (aka Mike Winkelmann). It starts with a sunny small town parade complete with "rainbows are yummy" signs. Then things get a little bloody. More »

Flying Lotus – “Kill Your Co-Workers”

Pair this with "Camera Day," it's another track from Flying Lotus's Cosmogramma follow-up Pattern + Grid World, the seven-track set Steven Ellison's releasing just three months after his proper LP's bold-stroked beat opus. This one plays with drum and bass BPMs and intersecting synth lines, nowhere near as nasty as its title would… More »

Flying Lotus – “Camera Day”

L.A. laptop beatmaster/live smiler Flying Lotus is following his winning 2010 LP Cosmogramma with a 2010 EP titled Pattern+Grid World. It spans seven tracks, one of which is the mindfully major-keyed, relatively optimistic FlyLo upper "Camera Day"; even the synth lines approximating sirens toward the end sound uplifting inside its Prozac-smiled bouncestyle. A… More »

Flying Lotus – “Mmmhmm” Video

Flying Lotus's "Heave(n)” video solidified the non-album track's job as the soundtrack for “building a better pyramid.” This Special Problems-directed "Mmmhmm" clip solidifies the Thundercat-featuring Cosmogramma tune's job as the soundtrack for "building a better high."… More »

Flying Lotus – “Heave(n)”

A non-Cosmogramma track popped up today via Flying Lotus's Twitter with a simple "I forgot to give you this..." If you follow the ellipses, you'll find a chopped-up "Heave(n)," the soundtrack for "building a better pyramid."… More »

Stream Flying Lotus Cosmogramma

Charisma isn't something you expect when you sign up for a live set from a one-man battery of controllers and Macbook sound design applications, but it's the word I wound up repeating after Flying Lotus's killer glitch-tripped desert set at Coachella a few weeks ago. Steven Ellison was showcasing bits from Los Angeles a few… More »
