17 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Flying Lotus takes a crowbar to musical categories on 2010's Cosmogramma. Wrenching apart hip-hop, jazz, and IDM, he fashions a ladder to the stars out of the splinters. Building on the psychedelic beat music of his previous releases, he looks to Thundercat's wily electric bass and Rebekah Raff's gossamer harp to add melody and movement. Thom Yorke even guests on one song. But the album's dynamic swirl of color and texture remains a radically democratic affair—a collective attempt to unlock hidden reaches of consciousness.

Epic.

As far as producers go, nobody can touch FlyLo right now.

FlyLo HAS EVOLVED!! Running for best record of 2010.

Do yourself a favor and SUPPORT THIS ARTIST. BUY THIS RECORD.

This new record from Flying Lotus is on another level. The layers in this record create an atmosphere that fills your ears with the whole range of sounds that are masterfully pieced together. It is forward growth and also a departure from the Hip Hop inspired slow beats from previous records. The sound here is more mature and sophisticated with a level of complexity that is well programmed and balanced. The tracks that stand out the best are Computer Face / Pure Being, "German Haircut", "Recoiled", and "Arkestry". My favorite track on the record is "Do the Astral Plane". AMAZING. Great work Flying Lotus and I cant wait for remixes and the next record.
