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.

Suffice to say that the artist who did the most to define the “LA beat” offers a look at South LA that’s as new and compelling as the sound he helped develop.

Flying Lotus has been teasing us with word of a new album for some time. Heck, he delivered an all new live set back in April at Coachella, making us wonder when the heck the new record would finally drop. The beloved producer is finally firming some things up, including the album title (Until The Quiet Comes), artwork, tracklist, and a list of special guest including Erykah Badu, Laura Marling, Niki Randa, Thundercat, and Thom Yorke. He’s also announced a tour to support the new record which will be coming on Warp Records on October 2nd.
