The pin-up boy of forward thinking instrumental hip-hop will travel to Europe for eleven dates during April and May.
Flying Lotus is set to embark on a tour of European club gigs and festivals later this month.
The LA-based beatsmith will begin his jaunt at the notoriously messy Bang Face Weekender at Camber Sands on 24th April (where he'll be joined by Zomby, 808 State and Dopplereffekt, amongst many other guests), Fly Lo will then take a quick trip over to Berlin's Berghain for a Sunday night before returning to the UK for midweek dates in Leeds and Sheffield. Gigs in Belgium, Rotterdam, Nantes, Switzerland, Nottingham, Amsterdam and Bristol follow, before the tour finishes with two large gigs for the producer. The first is at Rome's Dissonanze festival, where he'll head up a showcase of fellow LA-based beatsmiths (including sets from Daedelus, The Gaslamp Killer and Hyperdub starlet Samiyam) before moving on to help celebrate Warp's 20th anniversary in Paris. Hudson Mohawke and Aphex Twin (alongside recent live collaborator Florian Hecker) will join him at the show, but Warp have announced that there will be additional guests that have yet to be revealed.
