Flying Lotus is SICK.

Flying Lotus is a producer from Winnetka, California. What is it with these Cali producers and always coming with the most inventive sounds??? I would say that 3 most innovative producers of the last 2 decades have come from Cali, these being : Madlib, Battlekat, Dr Dre. Now add Flying Lotus to that mix of producers who have seen beyond the scope of a club/electro/rap mashup and really went in their own lane. This guy sounds like a combination of Aphex Twin, Tricky, The Neptunes and sprinkle in a little Bjork. Amazing work. Below are two standout tracks. This dude is in my top 10 of the year.

Flying Lotus - Roberta Flack Ft Dolly -

Flying Lotus - Camel -
