While he runs L.A.'s massively influential Brainfeeder label, Flying Lotus has for a long while now appeared isolated from his own fathered scene, perched in a visibly stratified demigod position. Not that he doesn't deserve it; Cosmogramma was an immense labyrinth of intertwining jazz and hip-hop..
He is on another level. Some artists make one or two great things,and then fall off, give up, or self induldge into mediocrity due to many pats on the back. But this has not been the case here with Mr. Ellison's work. It just says there will be more great things to come from him...for a long time. Even after all the great things that have come already. A genuine Artist.
