From the skeletal electro of "Dance Floor Stalker", which brings to mind a more sinister Egyptian Lover, to the subterranean soul knocker "Tea Leaf Dancers" and the bass workout of "Spicy Sammich"...
Los Angeles is the place Flying Lotus inhabits, turning out his electric brand of shadowy funk. His Warp Records debut, 'Reset' is the perfect opportunity for Lotus to stretch out and give a small taste of his wide-ranging talent.
From the skeletal electro of "Dance Floor Stalker", which brings to mind a more sinister Egyptian Lover, to the subterranean soul knocker "Tea Leaf Dancers" and the bass workout of "Spicy Sammich", no stone is left unturned.
Not unlikely will you have heard his bugged out remixes of Kelis, Madvillan and Mia Doi Todd which in going head to head with the original have spread like viral wildfire. Or these new 'Reset' tracks that are at once percussive and epic.
While there's no question that Flying Lotus' roots are in hip-hop, there is an undeniable influence from growing up in and around the Coltrane family. In particular sharing music and ideas with his great aunt Alice before her recent death has meant that the music he's creating is something new, something transforming and viewed from a very unique perspective.
So feel free to freak out to 'Reset' until the upcoming album makes it way into your hands in 2008…and what to expect then? Says the man himself, "Some new tricks".
