Steven Ellison is finally back as Flying Lotus, having spent the time since You're Dead! collaborating with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, producing the likes of Thundercat, running his excellent Brainfeeder record label, and directing and writing the film Kuso. So not much then! Flamagra is as if he'd never been away - with Ellison's signature electronica blend of hip hop, funk, soul, jazz, and IDM at it's most engaging, featuring guest sports from the likes of Solange, Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, David Lynch, Thundercat, Shabazz Palaces, Toro y Moi, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, and Denzel Curry, to name a few. Flying!
For Fans Of: Thundercat, Anderson .Paak, Shabazz Palaces, Solange
"Nearly five years after the last Flying Lotus album - the Grammy-nominated ‘You’re Dead!’ - and Flying Lotus’ stock has never been higher. The interim years have seen him collaborating with Kendrick Lamar on the classic ‘To Pimp A Butterfly’, directing and writing the Sundance-premiered ‘Kuso’ movie and producing much of Thundercat’s ‘Drunk’. ‘Flamagra’ encompasses hip hop, funk, soul, jazz, global dance music, tribal polyrhythms, IDM and the LA Beat scene but it soars above a specific vortex whose coordinates can’t be accurately charted. Other than to say that it is a Flying Lotus record, perhaps the definitive one. ‘Flamagra’ features (in order of appearance) Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, David Lynch, Shabazz Palaces, Thundercat, Toro y Moi, Solange and more."
