Flying Lotus’ albums are events. They’re not issued with a mechanic regularity and they don’t subscribe to recognized formulae. For those prone to astral traveling and metaphysical introspection they are another piece of the puzzle. For those, let’s say more ‘conventional’ listeners, the records are grand and ghostly sweeping movements – the sort of ... Read more in Amazon's Flying Lotus Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Effortless but short 12 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Steven Ellison (AKA Flying Lotus) is an artist with a rich pedigree. The great nephew of Alice Coltrane, his ancestry is a clear influence on the jazzy, instrumental hip-hop that comprises his debut.

Prior to dropping this, Fly-Lo had already given an indication of his abilities with the Reset EP, containing the excellent 'Tea Leaf Dancers'. The big drawback of this record is that it lacks a similar track to provide the album with a central focus. Instead this record develops from a lengthy title-track deconstructed into the several shorter, more ambient tracks. Then for the second half of the album, there is another lengthy song, 'Pet Monster Shotglass', again followed by shorter and more chilled electronica tracks.

Fly-Lo's debut is only 33 minutes, but however concise, this is mostly a case of quality over quantity. His beats are cooked to precision, the keys modulated to the exact sound he's looking for. What's most impressive is the atmosphere that is blended, track-by-track - it's both urban, ambient and dubby. From the song titles 'Orbit Brazil', 'Sao Paolo' and '1984', you can tell that he's trying to call to mind a specific time and place, something tropical and claustrophic, placed on the outskirts yet caught up in them. Each track blurs effortlessly into the next.

The album ends with a slightly disappointing vocal track and Daedelus's remix of the title track: unfortunately both of these additions, whilst having their individual merits, feel tacked on and run at cross purposes to the flow of the album.

In terms of technique and production I would definitely recommend this. Fly-Lo brings something new to the table of this genre and his work always has quality in abundance.

Where did this come from?!?!?! Out of the nowhere, out of the blue comes this lil gem that bangs from here to South Africa. Nothing but avant garde, gourmet break beats au gratin here.

5.0 out of 5 stars BANGERS 5 Jan 2007
By Tyler Christensen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is a great experiment in hip-hop and instrumental music. I found out about Flying Lotus on myspace and become a fan. I bought this album when it dropped October 3rd, 2006. Money well spent in my opinion! The "Pet Monster Shotglass" track is fire! Peace

5.0 out of 5 stars The one that set it all off... 21 Sep 2011
By auDiBLe-INTEGRITY - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the album that set it all off for me back in '07-'08, I think it was. Introduced me to the genius of FlyLo and I instantly became a fan. Loved hearing his work on Adult Swim. The title track on this CD even inspired me to write/record lyrics to it just for the fun of it. Was a deep, telling tale about how music has been important to me and a thank you to all those that have inspired me over the years. I wish FlyLo could've heard my version of it and gave feedback, though I'm sure he heard many others.

Maybe one day... well, I got my own beats to work on. His instrumental albums are visceral, emotive soundscapes. His sample chops and drum programming are def for fans of Dilla, Madlib, the Roots, !llMind, Kanye to an extent (meh, early Kanye)... but I imagine if you're already fans of those guys, you already know about FlyLo. He's just that dope...

A big fan...
