Steven Ellison has been producing music under his Flying Lotus alias since 2006, releasing six critcally acclaimed albums, collaborating with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Erykah Badu, Thom Yorke, Snoop Dogg and Herbie Hancock, and finding time to set up his own independent label, Brainfeeder.
On this episode of Repercussions, Stuart Buchanan and guest Luke Telford take a 60-minute fly through the Fly-Lo catalogue, from early Dilla-esque beats on his debut 1983 to the hip hop’n’jazz-fusion odyssey of his new release for Warp Records, You’re Dead.
