Electronic, Hip-Hop, Jazz-Funk, Experimental

Find Flying Lotus shaking off the cosmic dust at the convergence of hip hop, jazz, and experimental electronica. For the great-nephew of John and Alice Coltrane, exploring sound is a spiritual journey – and you can follow his path to the future of music. Flying Lotus’ boundary-breaking productions are fearlessly prismatic and stunningly diverse. Vivid visions of surreal beauty meld with a smoked-out soulfulness, free-ranging rhythms, and monster-battling bass.

Why the Music Matters: Flying Lotus is an undeniable musical pioneer whose formidable influence emanates from the epicenter of the global beat-making community. With a quiet and cool charisma, he has introduced the infinite possibilities of jazz to a whole new generation – and expanded the very definition of the genre. Let go of the ground and join this imaginative, avant-garde artist on a transcendent audio exploration.
