FLYING LOTUS RETURNS WITH THE NEW ALBUM COSMOGRAMMA
SET FOR RELEASE MAY 4, 2010 ON WARP RECORDS
Flying Lotus has grown into the position of being far more than a producer, he has helped materialize a far-reaching strain of musical ideology that has encompassed not only a global family of like-minded artists, but also a nearly infinite palate of planetary (and interplanetary) sonics. Now he returns with Cosmogramma on May 4.
| Flying Lotus|
On his new album an entirely new range of sounds has been unlocked by our intrepid astral traveler, but every genre touchstone associated with his name has been merged into a self-described space opera. Seamless in execution and too wide in scope to properly describe, it is the authentic embodiment of his unique musical heritage. The spirit of his famed aunt, Alice Coltrane permeates the record, notably in the powerful collaborations with relative Ravi Coltrane, bass virtuoso Thundercat and the brilliant harp prodigy, Rebekah Raff.
Certainly these are further reaches into a musical space that Flying Lotus had hitherto been exploring, however other collaborators such as Erykah Badu and Outkast string arranger Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and guest vocalists Thom York and a returning Laura Darlington help deliver Cosmogramma to dizzying new heights. All this name-dropping, however, is not to detract from the genius of the wizard-like figure behind it all. The most powerful aspect of FlyLo's output has always been it s ability to communicate his boundless love and enthusiasm for music in all it's forms and that is what is boldly on display here.
