Flying Lotus is one of those names that sounds equally familiar and un-familiar. By this point, it’s tough to imagine a producer this talented slipping past anyone’s radar. You may have caught his music on Adult Swim before without noticing, which is one of those nicely odd ways that pop culture sometimes finds a way to disseminate cool stuff out into the world. But, at its essence, the guy makes the kind of music that you’d hear about from your best friend’s cool older brother or something like that.
Take a minute to familiarize (or re-familiarize) yourself with the man and the myth, ’cause homeboy has a new record coming out. Dubbed a ‘glorious space opera’ by his label, Warp Records, Cosmogramma, coming out in May and including a collaboration with Thom Yorke, is gonna be huge.
