From producing bumper music for Adult Swim to being at the forefront of the Los Angeles underground beat scene, Flying Lotus is recognized for his experimental brand of music that has put the producer in a league of his own.
While more famously known for his music, FlyLo (real name Steven Ellison) may also be known for his family as well. With his grandmother being songwriter Marilyn McLeod (Diana Ross’ “Love Hangover” and Freda Payne’s “I Get High”), and his grand-aunt being the late pianist Alice Coltrane, most would say music is in his blood.
With each album, FlyLo pushes the boundaries further sonically. His 2014 album You’re Dead!, was critically acclaimed for his production and experimentation with hip-hop, jazz, and electronic music.
