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

2010’s Cosmogramma was a watershed moment for experimental producer Steven Ellison, aka Flying Lotus. At no point in his relatively short career had the California native sounded so fidgety and restless. Despite the pressure, Cosmogramma was a refreshingly dynamic take on jazz, techno and electro-soul, and a highlight in Ellison’s already remarkable discography.

Until the Quiet Comes is amazing for different reasons. For one, it’s much more accessible than its predecessor, though it contains glitches typical of a Flying Lotus recording, with booming bass drums supplanted by edgy synths. But while his previous work is bright and bouncy, this set is ambient and nocturnal. It’s a wistful journey through a mystical dream world that only he could construct.

And he seems quite comfortable there. After Cosmogramma was snubbed in 2010’s Grammy category for Best Electronic/Dance album, Lotus called the awards process “a joke” on Twitter. Surely, he had a right to be disturbed, since the album was an all-in effort. Maybe that’s why Until the Quiet Comes is so streamlined. While traces of anxiety remain, there’s an overriding sense of tranquillity permeating this record.

Take a song like Getting There, for instance. It carries the percussive knock of a hip hop tune without the rhymes; instead, guest vocalist Niki Randa hums angelically amongst the track’s twinkling chimes.

Such ambience continues on See Thru to U and its rousing backdrop: tribal drums and cymbals merge with Erykah Badu’s atmospheric moans. The results are strikingly celestial.

Other songs are closer to Earth. The Nightcaller is a straightforward breakbeat drenched in California gloss. Putty Boy Strut, with its electronic handclaps and computerized squeaks, is a videogame instrumental fit for a Legend of Zelda remake.

And then there’s Phantasm and its hauntingly disjointed procession. Here, Ellison fuses strings, electric keys, and fluttering bass with vocalist Laura Darlington’s delightful sighs.

The outcome is an otherworldly excursion through our deepest states of unconsciousness. For a person so sonically inclusive, Until the Quiet Comes further catapults Ellison into the cosmos and away from all things terrestrial. He’s the king of his domain, and there is no runner-up.

This is a cool album. Full of sounds and beats with some great tracks. One of my favourites is Putty Boy Strut. Probably not as good as his earlier more hip-hop based stuff though but still well worth a listen.

AAAAHHHHH!!! i've just annoyingly deleted a relatively indepth, four paragraph review of this LP by accidentally restarting my computer a minute ago. This has forced me to be way more laconic than i usually am here, which may turn out to be a blessing in disguise as i do have a tendancy to go on a bit with these things ... Anyways on to the album. FlyLo ambitiously stitches together a diverse array of musical styles on Until The Quiet Comes to produce a mesmeric lattice-work of psychedelic wonderment; with winding basslines, stuttering drum beats, bright keyboards and pitch shifted vocals featuring heavily throughout this albums duration. Although that might sound like an unpenetrable and potentially alienating concoction on paper, Mr Ellison's consumate compositional skills bring all these disparate elements together, by filtering them through his unique lens of jazzy electronica much like he did on his previous opus "Cosmogramma". "UTQC" is an all together more apporachable work than it's predecessor though, with FlyLo choosing to create a lush soundscape of mind altering mood pieces with the aforementioned elements, rather than densely packing everything together to produce something as abstract and otherwordly as "Cosmogramma". Fans of electronic music in general should find plenty on "UTQC" to drool over, but those of you who have a penchant particularly for Amon Tobin's brand of Jazz infused breakbeat and/or Matthew Herbert's soulful microhouse will be especially taken by this albums three dimensional fusion of experimental jazz and multifarious electronica.

Flying Lotus (Steven Ellison) returns with a new album `Until the Quiet Comes'. Packed with 18 tracks, Flying Lotus is never short on ideas and this album will certainly keep you enthralled. As soon as `All in' starts you know that `Until the Quiet Comes' is not the overwhelming experience that the epic `Cosmogramma' was, this album is much more subtle and measured.

Apart from the OTT space-funk of `The Night Caller', there really isn't a bad track on `Until the Quiet Comes'. Highlights include `Getting There' with Niki Randa, an effortlessly cool mixture of creamy vocals, hazy chimes, sultry synths and lazy hip-hop beats. Its the snuggest piece of bliss i've heard in 2012. New directions come in the form of `Putty Boy Strut', a groovy head-nodding clapper of a tune, part playful part-nostalgic, busy and childlike and very addictive. `Electric Candyman' features a barely recognisable Thom Yorke, a dreamy trip of a track where he provides croaky vocals over some twitching RnB beats and deeper than Atlantis bass. The faltering bass stomp at the end of the track certainly wasn't expected, Flying Lotus never fails to keep you on your toes throughout this album.

Working with so many collaborators, Ellison has avoided the temptation to overindulge and has allowed all to work in equilibrium. The atmospheric `Hunger' has Niki Randa back on vocals again with another sweeping song with beautiful melodies and gorgeous guitar that whisks you away to another of Flying Lotus's delicious realms. The penultimate `me Yesterday// Corded' is another triumph, steel drum melodies underpin some ghostly vocals, the tempo slows down before a dizzying synth movement kicks in and just totally floors you with its upbeat mood.

I was a little put-off by some lukewarm reviews for this album, thinking maybe it was that inevitable point where a great artist starts to coast or something. When I finally picked it up, a year late, I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a great listen beginning to end. Well, that'll teach me. It is perhaps a bit more listenable than his previous albums, in that the sounds are a bit clearer and sharper in the mix and mastering. Does that matter? It's not a bad thing. I won't compare it to his previous albums though, just take it as it comes and it's a great modern day mutant hip-hop album, pulling in strains of all kinds of music from dub to jazz and spinning them back out over some great beats.

One of my favourite albums of all time. HIGHLY recommend, although if you are narrow-minded then stick to your top 40 hits. This is one for those open to experimental music. Amazing.

I bought this as part of a gift voucher amount that I thought I'd use to push myself into new directions and, boy, am I glad. This is just wonderful, I know of nothing like it. If you feel like a bit of a trip into the unknown then try it. Far out - thanks Mr Ellison!
