Description

Fire is coming. "Flamagra" is a Flying Lotus album, possibly even his definitive one: an astral-afrofuturistic masterpiece between deep soul, cosmic dust and unconditional originality.

His last work "You're Dead" (2014) earned him a Grammy nomination, his Brainfeeder label has become one of the most innovative sound labs in the world, he co-produced Kendrick Lamar's five Grammy-winning masterpiece "To Pimp A Butterfly" (2015).

Now Flying Lotus is releasing his new album for Warp: "Flamagra" takes all the creative quantum leaps and innovative elements from 12 years of FlyLo's career and thinks them further, bigger, more epic and more universal: hip-hop, funk, soul, jazz, electro, IDM, the approaches of the friendly beatmakers from L.A., tribal elements, polyrhythms. But even this list is not enough to even begin to locate "Flamagra", because it breaks out of this coordinate system again and again.

The guest list reads like a dream: Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Solange, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, Ishmael Butler (Shabazz Palaces), Toro Y Moi, his musical tribal brother Thundercat, even David Lynch can be heard. The legendary director contributes a few eerie words, a dark narrative passage with which he warns us urgently: "Fire is coming".

"Flamagra" is the essence of the last century in the realm of African-American music, completely reimagined and rethought, collectively filtered and honed. Even though Flying Lotus is a descendant of his venerable great-aunt Alice Coltrane, who was married to John (though Miles and Madlib, Dilla and DOOM may also be considered his ancestors), he has since created his own cult: A following that absorbs all genius from the past and transfers it into realms that said ancestors could never have dreamed of. Flying Lotus is back. Fire is coming.

Reviews
"Album No.6 ignites a futuristic fireworks display of funk, gospel, free jazz, rap and ambient with guest appearances from director David Lynch." (Stereo, August 2019)
