DOWNLOAD: Flying Lotus - 3 non-album tracks (ZIP)


Flying Lotus (DJ & laptop whiz Steven Ellison) will be at LPR on Tuesday, March 30th for a show with kode9 presented by Wordless Music. Tickets are on sale.

That's part of a larger string of dates (including Coachella in April) that lead up to his new album, Cosmogramma, which comes out May 4th on Warp.

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 Yorke and a returning Laura Darlington (featured on Los Angeles' epic closing track 'Inifinitum') help deliver Cosmogramma to dizzying new heights. [Warp]

The label has put up three recent non-album tracks from Flying Lotus, which you can grab above.

He'll also be at SXSW for the Warp showcase Wednesday, March 17th at the Phoenix with labelmates Hudson Mohawke, Born Ruffians, Nice Nice, Pivot and Eskmo. Nice Nice (Portland's Jason Buehler and Mark Shiraz) are getting their record Extra Wow released by the label on April 6th. The trippy video for their song "Everything Falling Apart" and tour dates are below.

DOOM wannabe? Get real, chief. FlyLo doesn't rap.

doom wannabe?
its all been done your history
nothing new under the sun
flylos devoted to his art and imagination thats why he's able to make good music
i have a feeling that mask is a vision he had through his journey
look at the balinese, african mask, chinese masks...etc
suckers for the hype don't know how to connect with life
you don't create you just hate and critic
think about it!
flylo is by nature one of the most genuine and pure artist out there. we all are. he was blessed to have someone to nurture it.
look inside and appreciate channel your energy and you too could create.

I like jokes and thats not a joke.
But I agree no need to get sooo emotional.
Go look at a funny you tube video or something.

Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
