Flying Lotus, 'Cosmogramma' (Warp)

8
Cosmogramma
Critical Mass
Label: Warp

by Mosi Reeves

Widely acknowledged as an avant-beat auteur, Flying Lotus is a hybridist at heart. More than his contemporaries (Nosaj Thing, Daedelus), he understands that it's about the voice as much as the beats. Warm and inviting, his latest opus occasions swan dives into future soul, funky dubstep ("Dance of the Pseudo Nymph"), Theo Parrish–styled house ("Do the Astral Plane"), and astonishingly, Sun Ra jazz ("Arkestry"). Constant is FlyLo's peerless blend of processed glitches, eight-bit squelches, and percussive flurries.
