Flying Lotus, the godfather of LA’s  infamous beat scene is China bound at last. For more than a decade now  Flylo has been cultivating a unique strain of jazzy, futuristic hip-hop,  creating some truly culture-shifting art as a producer, rapper, visual  artist, and live performer. He’s unleashed 5 LPs, a number of EPs, 1  mixtape (as rapping alter-ego, Captain Murphy), and countless  collabs/remixes, all the while touring with one of the most visually  thrilling live shows around.

Flylo started his career producing  tracks for Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, adorning the channel with  snippets of funky cosmic beats and defining his sound early on as  intoxicating and absurd. In 2006 he released his first album, 1983, and  subsequently signed with Warp records (Autechre, Aphex Twin) before the  release of his second LP, Los Angeles, in 2008. In that same year Flylo  established Brainfeeder, his own record label which would come to sign  artists of a similarly experimental persuasion, including Thundercat,  Tokimonsta, Teebs, Mono/Poly, Kamasi Washington, Daedalus, Mr. Oizo,  Lapalux, and more.

Through his later albums,  Cosmogramma, Until the Quiet Comes, and You’re Dead!, Flylo’s music  continued to increase in complexity and substance, garnering attention  for its intelligent and soulful manipulation of time signatures,  texture, and tricky rhythms. Most songs seem to occur at some strange  convergence of time and space and feel a lot like dreams, carrying a  mysterious (at times nightmarish) beauty. Some are soft and brooding  while others are fierce beyond words, but most fall somewhere in  between, all held together by recurring themes of death, the afterlife,  and dreamlike states. It’s some of the most emotionally and  intellectually provocative music you can find, and it’s no wonder so  many big names have sought him out for collaboration, including Thom  Yorke, Eyrkah Badu, Herbie Hancock, Burial, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg,  Thundercat, Earl Sweatshirt and many more.

It’s hard to point to someone more  deeply influential on the underground electronic scene than Flying  Lotus. His show is a fully immersive experience with a full LIVE visual  set-up on stage! Flylo will be supported by STD's R3, ADO8 and LINFENG.  This qualifies as one of those rare opportunities to glimpse into the  mind of one of most talented producers alive. Come get infected.
