First of all, I just want to mention that each album by Flying Lotus has involved evolution. He could make spacey hip/hop beats with mad flavor like in 1983 or unreleased stuff like Raw Cartoons or 38 Cartoons. Yet, by should he if he is evolving onto a higher plane of consciousness? I think that Pattern+Grid World is excellent! It's not as far out there as Cosmogramma(which I thought was crazy!). Yet, it definitely puts you into a drone-like haze. It's almost as if we are hearing the audio representation of what we are becoming more and more everyday: mindless drones without our own minds. WAKE UP!

low end theory get down.

pretty cool record. i'll never forget the Low End Theory with Flying Lotus, DNAE BEATS, Exile. Daedelus. such a amazing night. Blew my mind!!


Im a fan but I'm not to enthused about this one. On a positive note, Cosmogramma still knocks.

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....
