From tiny Los Angeles clubs to playing Sonar and Bestival, the rise has been slow and steady for Flying Lotus. RA's Joe Muggs calls up the West Coast to talk in advance of the release of his third album.
An audiovisual performance broadcast three different times in three different time ones features not only Brainfeeder head honcho Flying Lotus but long-time friends like Teebs, showcasing the full breadth of the label's mix of hip-hop, jazz and experimental music.
FlyLo has been a visionary, massively impactful force in LA music, but to his credit, he's never forgotten his scrappy roots. Last year, he brought his 3D show to 2,400-capacity Novo, but also played an unannounced show at Leaving Records' free, outdoor experimental concert series. Now, he'll play the online version alongside the likes of Seiho and Elliot Bergman. Support grassroots, all-genre culture.
