Los Angeles resident Steven Ellison a.k.a. Juno Leed a.k.a. FLYING LOTUS is a hip-hop producer and beat maker, occasionally linked to artists such as Madlib and fellow LA resident the Gaslamp Killer for his more abstract and sometimes jazz tinted style. Flying Lotus, often abbreviated to FlyLo, is currently signed to Warp Records, although he released his first album, 1983 on Plug Research Records, the label to which he belonged from 2006-2007. His June 2008 release, Los Angeles, with cover art designed by Timothy Saccenti, was released to positive critical reviews. As well as serious album work, remixes and production for artists such as Oddisee and John Robinson, FlyLo is also responsible for many of the musical loops heard during the ‘bumps’ on Adult Swim, as well as being a casual filmmaker.
We're also thrilled to welcome back South London’s Kode9, a key figure in the future of music with his influential record label Hyperdub (Burial, Zomby, Warrior Queen, etc). Currently, his dj sets travel through a selection of sub-bass driven, heavy skank with off-keysynths, drawing from the best of UK,underground scenes such as dubstep, grime, UK house and garage. More TBA!!!
