FLYING LOTUS

WARP RECORDS . US . LIVE/DJ SET

We had noticed Flying Lotus within the Plug Research label, a reference for Californian producers of abstract smoky Hip Hop. The last album released by Warp revealed him to the European public. As he is Alice Coltrane’s nephew, Flying Lotus definitely knows where his cosmic and spiritual inspiration comes from. Yet it is closer to Jay Dilla that one can find the origins of his music. As did the late producer, he enjoys knowingly moulding his displaced rhythms onto a background of sounds with psychedelic tones. (Photo : DR / Text : Olivier Kerdudo / Translation : Caroline Newman)
