I was first introduced to Flying Lotus’s (Stevie Ellison) music in fall of 2014 while at a north-side Chicago bar. The DJ played Never Catch Me featuring Kendrick Lamar, and it created such a trans-like atmosphere. Nothing scary, just oddly soothing and catchy.
Flying Lotus is an electronic music producer who I personally feel, creates a techno-club sound infused with hints of soul funk and jazz. To top it off, he adds a mystique overtone. This presents FL’s overall creation as easy, relaxing, and satisfying to listen to. It’s like his music tells a story from the beginning to the end on each track.
The most recent project Flamagra features George Clinton, Little Dragon, Shabazz Palaces, Solange, Thundercat, and Anderson.Paak, just to name a few.
