Editors’ Notes

Electronic pop auteur Flying Lotus (a.k.a. Steven Ellison) displays a new clarity of vision on Until the Quiet Comes as he reins in the scattershot tendencies of 2010’s Cosmogramma in favor of a more unified approach. The composer/producer still offers inspired pastiches of jazz, hip-hop and ambient sounds. But where his earlier work could be intentionally jarring, this album takes the listener on a smoothly-sequenced journey through inner landscapes. Ellison is aided by such notables as Erykah Badu (floating diva-like above the tribal groove of “See Thru to U”), Radiohead’s Thom Yorke (making his dark presence felt in “Electric Candyman”) and the Long Lost’s Laura Darlington (cooing her way through the eerie expanses of “Phantasm”). There’s plenty of sinewy pulsation amidst the billowing electronica, supplied by Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner’s insistent bass lines and Ellison’s jittery programmed beats. From the funkified growl of “The Nightcaller” to the robotic munchkin twitch of “Putty Boy Strut” and the sweet psyche-soul of “DMT Song,” Flying Lotus infuses the album with mystical vibes laced with subversive humor. Unearthly yet inviting, Until the Quiet Comes’ sonic spell is hard to resist.

Customer Reviews

The best Flying Lotus ever!

This is probably one of my favourite electronic albums - it's just fantastic! The haunting vocals on Electric Candyman, the clicking beats on Tiny Tortures, the jazzy, rocky feel of See Thru to U - it sounds amazing! The best Flying Lotus album ever in my opinion.

Back to the future

How do you follow up Cosmogramma? Tough ask. Well, UTQC is a magnificent example of getting the balance right between trying to emulate previous successes and reinventing the wheel. It's different enough to sound new but it embraces what FlyLo has always done so well: thoughtful, experimental electronica with hip hop and jazz influences. This album doesn't work on shuffle or if you isolate one track, you really have listen to it from start to finish & if you do you will certainly get something from it each time you listen to it. This is undoubtedly a very strong follow up to what is arguably my favourite electronic album of all time. Well done sir!!


I had high hopes for Fly-Lo. A few years ago, I went around telling anybody who would listen that he was the future of black electronic music. And, whilst I believe he still has that capacity, his last two albums (this one included) have failed to live up to expectations. Some of his music is brilliant but...I have to say this...some of it is also downright boring and over experimental. Electronic artists can often have too many knobs to twiddle and faders to slide. What gave Flying Lotus his career was his booming off kilter sonic hip hop beats blended with futuristic layers of synthezier and exotic samples. His live sets are legendary as you can actually dance to his club sound. The Flying Lotus studio sound has become self indulgent, surrounding himself with avent-garde notions of musical metamorphism and neo-jazz pomposity. I rate Flying Lotus, highly but it is a shame that his remixes are becoming more sought after than his own, original music.

Experimental electronic music producer Flying Lotus, born Steven Ellison, is a grandson of songwriter Marilyn McLeod (the co-writer of Diana Ross' "Love Hangover"), as well as a great-nephew of pianist Alice Coltrane, and therefore a cousin of saxophonist Ravi Coltrane. Ellison made beats for the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim network before releasing his debut full-length, 1983, which resembled the work of fellow avant-garde hip-hop producers Madlib, J Dilla, and Ammoncontact on Plug Research in 2006....
