Flying Lotus- Caravan of Delight (Original Mix)

28 Feb

Toks just threw up an awesomely funky Breakbot beat off the latest Ed Banger compilation.  Although the compilation features fresh tracks by many French heavy hitters, it closes with a brand new production by Los Angeles’ very own surrealist and visionary, Flying Lotus.  “Caravan of Delight” slides the listener into a dream-like world of odd chords and shifting rhythm.  Steven Ellison is developing a sound that no one, perhaps other than Thom Yorke, has been able to replicate.  (Give “Cosmogramma” and “King of Limbs” a listen and judge for yourself).

Flying Lotus- MmmHmm

14 Dec

Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, is a Los Angeles electronic artist who is steadily becoming more well-known, playing events such as Hard Haunted Mansion. His style is very unique with abstract sounds combined with a jazz influence. Flying Lotus’s video featured here is entertaining and very trippy. Big ups to my buddy Christiano for the suggestion and you can download the song in the video below! Enjoy.

Nosaj Thing

11 Nov

A Los Angeles native, Jason Chung, also known as, Nosaj Thing,  has been steadily making progress rising up out of the underground electronic music scene. Inspired by the Hip-Hop radio stations, that his elementary bus school driver would play on his way to school, and the rave scene involving drum and bass, Chung figured out how to use his father’s old PC to start making music. His primitive ways, on an old PC, eventually evolved into his very unique style and progressive-experimental sound. Chung’s use of beat pads to trigger loops are the basis of his sets, and clearly shows his talent and innovation that sets him apart from the rest. Earlier in his career he played at an underground Los Angeles music event, Low End Theory, from which he gained exposure to new fans and also bigger artists such as Flying Lotus, Nobody, and Daedelus. Tonight, Nosaj Thing is playing his own headlining show at the El Rey Theatre just down Wilshire, so if you are in the Los Angeles area, I would drop whatever plans you have and go!
