Biography

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

Product Description

BBC Review

For those that don't know, Flying Lotus has music in the family. The uniquely talented late Alice Coltrane is his great-aunt. But let's not assume anything here. Family aside, is Reset EP any good?

Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus, has created a hazy, ambient EP here which is refreshing because it is beautifully precise in its production. Clearly time has been spent perfecting every single sound on the EP. It's not easy to produce such sounds and it's a skill that 'FlyLo' has mastered seemingly with ease. The organic flavour to what some may describe as a minimal sound, is simplistic yet intricate and certainly defines this record.

With a mass of filters and compressors, Flying Lotus is certainly running rings round his counterparts. This EP is a fine example that technology can be used to improve the quality of music in this day and age.

'Tea Leaf Dancers' has enjoyed air-play from Gilles Peterson and sets the standard for the rest of the EP. Lovely vocals add to the texture of this floaty dreamy track. 'Massage Situation' is real catchy and slips into a stomper of a beat, while maintaining the chilled vibe. 'Vegas Collie' and 'Spicy Sammich' demonstrate the effects of live sounding drums, over some wicked filtered bass. 'Bonus Beat' and 'Dance Floor Stalker' are a touch more upbeat and are almost there for Lotus to continue showing off his production skills.

While comparisons may be made to Madlib, DJ Shadow and even J Dilla, these are no insults. And there remains large elements of individuality to Reset EP, that will ensure this stays at the top of your most-played list for some time to come.

Buy it, this is music in one of its most beautiful forms. --Alex Kenning

Headphone Commute Review 4 Mar. 2008
By Headphone Commute - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Steven Ellison lands a Reset EP, on Warp Records. His previous full length release, titled 1983, was released by Warp's US West Coast outlet, Plug Research. The LA producer grained recognition, and graduated with flying lotus [er... I mean "flying colors"]. Reset opens up with a track featuring heavily gated, soul vocals by Andreya Triana (think Jazz Sensation's Just Like That). From then we wobble through super groovy, left-field, instrumental hip hop, to the likes of Daedelus, Prefuse 73, DJ Shadow and Malcom Kipe. Overall the sound is spacey, loungey, sexy, if you will. The EP is rather short, and before you know it, the six tracks of eighteen minutes are over, and you press play again. And if it sounds like you have heard some of these head-nodding beats before, well... you have: think all the text-based short Adult Swim interludes with laid back and dope rhythms. It's nice to see Warp Records back in the groove (not that I dislike Grizzly Bear, but... you know what I mean). Check out his web site for a quick game of Attack! Then hit Reset. Favorite tracks: Tea Leaf Dancers and Massage Situation.

Good heady Hip-Hop. 1 July 2008
By Quik x - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This EP is better than Lotus's two LP's,(1983 and Los Angeles) both are solid records thou. You get the most bang for your buck here. Not a bad song in the bunch. (Tea leaf dancers)is by far his best song to date. You can't stop your head from bop'n on that one. He has a heavy sound to his Hip-Hop, some times to heavy for me. If you like Madlib you will prob'ly like fling lotus.

This item, while awesome, is a vinyl record, not a cd. I thought this was going be a cd, but the vinyl works too. It's great, check out his myspace for samples...
