When the next chapter in the history of electronic music is written, look for Los Angeles producer Flying Lotus to be featured on the first page. His visionary take on instrumental hip-hop has taken the world by storm, while his Brainfeeder label has sustained an entire new generation of producers—from Gaslamp Killer to Tokimonsta—who together make up what is known as the LA Beat sound. FlyLo’s fourth album, Until The Quiet Comes, drops next week on Warp Records (a name already written in many chapters of electronic music’s grand history). The album features some of the most significant players in modern music, including Erykah Badu and Thom Yorke. Check out the stream via NPR, and be convinced that Flying Lotus is another name that should appear on the list of “greats.”
