Since debuting in 2006 with 1983, Flying Lotus’ career has grown exponentially. Some would argue that the West Coast producer truly broke through and shed the “post-Dilla” tags two years later with an album dedicated to and named after his hometown of Los Angeles. The record showcased a forward-thinking approach to what many dubbed as the “beat scene,” wherein producers weave heady, bass-driven, and mostly instrumental efforts.

But it was truly his third full-length, 2010’s Cosmogramma, that made everyone stop for a second and reevaluate his music. Here was an album that was free-flowing and clearly dedicated to the groundbreaking jazz crafted by his gifted relatives. In particular, there’s his great aunt, Alice Coltrane, who forged a path for female musicians and just so happened to be married to jazz legend—that term might not even be strong enough—John Coltrane.

Cosmogramma also found FlyLo working with the likes of Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and poised-to-blow-up bassist/composer Thundercat. And while FlyLo could have easily rested on his uber-original laurels, he opted to look elsewhere for inspiration on his fourth album. As he explains, he didn’t want to say the same thing twice.

Until The Quiet Comes, which drops Oct. 2, retains the jazzy, beat-heavy influences of his previous work while injecting it with strong doses of psychedelic and progressive rock. There are also plenty of bangers he crafted for the club-going sect, particularly those who show up at his concerts prepared to lose their shit as soon as his mind state-altering sounds fill the air.

At the same time, FlyLo found himself falling back in love with hip-hop thanks to some raucous youngsters. In particular, he cites Odd Future, A$AP Mob, and SpaceGhostPurrp’s Raider Klan as newfound inspiration. It’s no surprise that he’s gone on to record with guys like Hodgy Beats and Earl Sweatshirt, while it appears a collaboration with Purrp is soon-coming.

Find out about all of that and much more in the following interview, which serves as a preview of Until The Quiet Comes, a testament to his artistic vision, and a look into his personal connection to music.

First taste of goodness:)

Interview by Andrew Martin (@Andrew_J_Martin)


Complex: What are you working on now while you get ready to push the album?

Flying Lotus: I’ve got my hands in a lot of jars. I'm kind of producing the new Thundercat stuff, kind of producing stuff for Shabazz Palaces and Azizi Gibson. Just little things here and there between records. I’m working on the music for a TV show called Cat Dick for Adult Swim. It's really silly and about a cat detective. It’s all real animals, kind of like an old detective show.

Are you doing any more tracks with Odd Future?

I'm talking with a few other dudes like Domo [Genesis] and I really want to do a track with Tyler. He's a tricky one, man, 'cause he has his hands in a lot of jars and he’s very particular about who he works with and when he works with people. We've been pals for quite some time. He knows I’m here. He knows I’m around.

What about the Weeknd? You guys played an impromptu show together recently.

Yeah, me and the Weeknd have talked a bunch about things. There are some potential ideas he had and I’m all game for it. It might be too soon to say exactly what, but I’d say we will connect on some things.

Any plans to play live again with the Infinity Band?

I’m not sure about the Infinity Band. It's really hard to get all my musicians in one space together. I feel like every time I have a time to do that show, it’s like asking and begging for favors and I hate doing that. Unfortunately, it's gotta be a bigger band than a trio. But I might do it if the situation presented itself.

What can you tell me about the new album?

I know people are looking forward to it. I think it's different than the last thing (Cosmogramma). I feel like there’s more stuff for the club in this one than the last one. But at the same time, I feel like there’s headphone music, so it helps that there’s enough of both.

How did your writing and recording process differ making Until the Quiet Comes compared to Cosmogramma?

I always try to set challenges for myself when it comes to putting records together because I don’t want to say the same things twice. So that's one of the bigger things and obviously I just want to be a better musician. With Cosmogramma, I felt I had to prove myself a little bit more and had to remove myself from the scene a little bit because people would say things about what they thought I did and their perceived idea of what I did. It’s frustrating to be lumped into categories. I felt like I had to make a statement to separate myself.

While Erykah Badu and Thom Yorke are the bigger names that appear on this album, and Yorke was on Cosmogramma as well, one constant since 1983 has been Laura Darlington. What's your connection with her?

Laura is a funny one because she embodies a part of the sound I gravitate toward a lot. It's this innocent sound and she reminds me a lot of my favorite vocalists, like a bit of Beth Gibbons, Trish Keenan, and them. Laura's got her own thing. I am a fan of folk and psychedelic music so I think she really gets that but she also gets the beat thing, too.

Getting back to Badu, is the planned joint album with her actually going to happen?

I’m not sure what’s going to happen anymore because she's so busy, but hopefully we can connect because I'm game for it. To be honest, the only thing that came out of it was the track on my album. We have drafts and sketches of things but I really don't think I can produce and direct an entire album unless we have time to be in the same space for a little while.

We would both have to find the time, and whenever the time comes for her, I’ll drop everything to make it happen. It was funny because I waited a lot and was like, "I'm going to take this track. It’s mine now." [Laughs.]

The drafts and things we did before, we worked together in the same space. It has to be that way and we have to continue that because I just can’t see myself producing her over emails, though I trust she would deliver some awesome shit.

Is that why you haven’t done a lot of full projects for other artists?

I feel like I’m getting to a place where I’m more open to that but a lot of times collaborations sound good on a blog or on paper but it all depends on the chemistry and the magic. Several artists I’ve met and talked to, we want to do an album together and it sounds good to say that. But you know, as much as all rappers and singers have a crazy personality, i have that, too! And it’s all about finding that synergy.

Are you able to do more with Thundercat because you live close to each other?

We don't live super close-by and we don’t have lots of time to work now that he's getting all famous with his music. [Laughs]. But we always find the time to work together and even if we don't for a while, he can come through on a Monday after a month of us not seeing each other and we can just get things done. We can get a lot done in a day. I consider him a part of Flying Lotus. He's part of the sound that I’m after. We just have such amazing chemistry in the studio. And on the new album, he plays on 75 percent of it.

Jonny Greenwood (of Radiohead) is also on the album, right?

Yeah, and that happens during Miguel's [Atwood Ferguson] first time on the album. There's an acoustic section near the end of the album. The whole way the thing came together was organic. There was no thought really. We were all sitting around listening to this shit and it’s like, "Let’s open up a session and rip with it."

And how about that Thom Yorke collaboration? I heard you didn’t think he’d be on the album.

We have pretty good communication and we talk on e-mail often. But I figured he wouldn't be super enthusiastic about collaborating again because has so much going on and there are a million other people he could be working with. I felt very honored he wanted to work together again and it was very nice to have him back.

What’s most interesting is that he doesn’t even sound like what you'd expect on the album.

That’s funny because a lot of people ask about that and say, "Why don't you make it sound like him because it’s him." But I tell them it’s not about him. It’s my album. All these things are textures to me. I’ll pitch Thom all the way down if it sounds right. And that is why Thom fucks with me because I’m not afraid to fuck with it like that.

He sent me the vocals and trusted me to do what I do. He asked what the track meant to me and what the vibe of the album was. There were two tracks for consideration. I just sent him some of my music to keep him in the loop with what I’m doing and he's like, "Oh shit, I think got something for this."

It’s actually evolved since he heard it. It’s cool to get dry vocals and get inspired to add some things and build some moments and embellishing sections.

What is the vibe and concept of the album?

When I started working on it and making drafts, I was really into the idea of doing a children's record. Well, I really wanted to make a record that had this innocence to it. And it’s not about being naive but being able to harness the feeling of hearing things for the first time. I was really into meditation and mystical states and all that shit, which really, really inspired me.

I imagined seeing a whole world you can’t have imagined before and being completely innocent. Those are the kind of images I see. It’s of a young character, but not a kid, just like the youthful parts of yourself coming alive for the first time.

Do you have a favorite track from the album?

I always go through different phases with the tracks. At the moment, I really like "Only If You Wanna" on there. Stereolab was a big influence on that and it was really cool to add something to that conversation. It feels good to be able to throw one back to the universe.

So were they a big influence throughout the project?

I live in L.A. and it’s always sunny here. The vibe is real Stereolab. So yeah, they’re definitely a big influence. The thing about making records for me is I try to pull from something that might have passed. The whole "old is new again" idea.

The last record was more jazz for me and falling in love with my family's timeline of music again. This was getting back into psychedelic rock music, prog-rock, and jazz, too. I listened to a lot of Gentle Giant, Broadcast, Stereolab, all those weird drum machine rock songs. For those that don’t know, Gentle Giant is like half psych, half jazz, then pieces of renaissance fair shit in there.

Getting back to your recent collaborations, what can you tell us about this Captain Murphy character?

He’s a young dude from L.A. He's really really shy. I met him through hanging out in the scene and shit. He's a young dude not giving a fuck about being famous and shit. He didn't even want to release the music he'd been passing to me and just did the shit for fun but I convinced the dude to start pushing himself and getting the music out.

Word. Well, what’s interesting about that track you did with him and Earl is how it wasn’t just like a huge track with crazy features. It sounded like a real collaboration.

I feel like people weren't going to like the Earl Sweatshirt track because it’s older. I made that beat like five years ago. But I’m super into collaborating. I’m having so much fun working with other artists. I think it’s a fucking awesome time right now. There’s lots of cool stuff. I’m just trying to stay busy doing my shit and if I can work with other people and find a cool thread between our worlds it's, "Hell yeah."

I know those dudes are real particular about how they want their stuff to come out and all that. We did this thing and I hadn't heard from Earl in a while and didn't know if he fucked with it, but it happened and worked out really well.

What made you want to start working with rappers again?

Phases, man. New people. It's so inspiring hearing all these new sounds and seeing all these new people pop up from around the world who are really dope. There are these people who were in the crowd when I started and now they're on stage.

Years ago you only had guys like Kanye and Jay-Z and it was like, "What could they possibly tell me?" And, "How can we relate anymore?" That’s not inspiring to me. But now it feels right again.

It’s like all trap music now, too. I was in Switzerland and there were dudes making trap. All of a sudden the world recognizes Dirty South music. I have some shit that sounds like that, too, but I've personally been like, "Nah." It’s just because, again, I feel like I’m in a peculiar situation. I always feel like I’m staying true to what I set out to do. It’s not just being like the trendy guy.

Who are you listening to in particular that's inspired you?

Jeremiah Jae. I've been familiar with his music for some time now and he moved from Chicago to L.A. and having him here has been motivating and inspiring. Whenever I think about not doing anything, we meet up and he’s working on like a million things. His presence is motivating.

And obviously Odd Future, those are my peoples, and all the A$AP kids. I like the Raider Klan. I fuck with all that shit, man. I wanna do some shit with SpaceGhostPurrp. I actually sent him some shit. We're buddies on the fucking Skype. I’m trying to get some stuff done with him.

After five listens through various times of day and states of mind, I can say that I love it. I look forward to getting to know its nooks and crannies more fully. Favorite moments are "Until the Colors Come" -> "Heave(n)" -> "Tiny Tortures," and the last couple tracks. Holy fuck. Shit is groovy and spacey and hot as fuck.

nosurprises12
09-20-2012, 12:42 PM
So my original plan was to wait until the official release to listen to this, but after seeing all the praise this morning I said "fuck it" and downloaded it. After three listens, I'm enjoying it very, very much. For me Cosmogramma was always going to be a really hard album to follow-up (it was my #1 album of 2010 by a fairly good margin), but I think he's done well to keep some of the elements from it which worked and to add in a few wrinkles to his sound as well. It's maybe not as much as a "unified," 50-minute listen like Cosmogramma is, but songs like "Tiny Tortures," "See Thru to U," and "Phantasm" make it a really strong addition to his catalog. Can't wait for a headlining LA club date to hear some of this stuff live.

IceyHotshot
09-20-2012, 12:43 PM
I find it very restrained and subdued in a positive way. The album title is very apt. I'm going to have to give it some more spins.

Mr. Dylanja
09-20-2012, 12:53 PM
Hmm, first time through and it sounds just like Cosmogramma, only rearranged. Some of the bass lines and drum patterns sound like they were lifted straight from the previous record. Don't get me wrong, I love Cosmogramma, I was just expecting the overall sound to be a little more varied and different rather than a continuation. I'm sure that's because of the leap between Los Angeles and Cosmogramma. "Phantasm" and "Sultan's Request" were my favorites.

Time to rinse and repeat.

greghead
09-20-2012, 02:00 PM
As I understand it, some of these tracks found their beginnings a few years ago, he's just now come back around to them. So I guess some should sound a bit like Cosmogramma? I don't know. I DO know he has been playing a handful of these songs live for the last two years, often mixed with Cosmogramma tracks, and my brain is connecting the songs to Cosmogramma in that way.


EDIT:

I find it very restrained and subdued in a positive way.

Yes. Agreed 100%. Cosmogramma was so very flashy in a lot of ways, it's nice to not get continually bowled over by unrelenting brilliance this time around.

I tried to listen to the first song of the vinyl rip but decided to wait until I get a proper CDQ rip to listen to the rest. The white noise in the background, however quiet/insignificant it may be, was just a little too distracting. Usually such things don't bother me, but for an album like this I think it is necessary to wait. If anyone has a CDQ rip already please hit me up!

It's also possible that I'm just crazy and imagining/hearing things. Either way...

Just like Cosmogramma, this needs to be enjoyed/listened to as an album, front to back. I really enjoy his effort to make a unified piece of work.

not digging it after 1.5 listens. it's thoroughly unremarkable thus far. sounds like somebody trying to sound like flying lotus at this point.

Really? To me, this sounds more like "Flying Lotus" than anything else he's ever done. A culmination/evolution of sorts. You have a heady blend of the post-Dilla influences from his early work, the ambient experiments from LA EP 3x3/Cosmo Alt Takes, and the masterful arrangements & textures of Cosmogramma. Sounds like Flying Lotus sounding like himself, imo.

Gah! I want that track so badly. In a live setting the bass is liable to explode all your major joints simultaneously.

EDIT: God, I miss his 2010 sets, those were so good. I'm curious to hear what he's doing now but don't want to drop $40 to watch him do it.

I loved it. Great energy the whole time and the visuals really added to the set.

On our way out towards the end of Animal Collective's set I saw him smoking a blunt so I decided to introduce myself and talk with him for a bit. He was such a chill, down to earth guy. Exactly the way he seems in all the interviews and what not.

His set at the Hollywood bowl was great. Kinda weird watching him at a seated venue. Felt like I was one of the few dancing. Strangeloops did a great job on his visuals and it worked well with his material. Definitely felt as if he was playing more as a musician than a dj. I guess what I mean by that is that it was more of a musical experience than a party set, like at this years coachella. Very much like the set he did while opening for atoms for peace. I'm sure his headlining sets will be more so like his festival/club sets. The new material sounded great. Highlights on the set for me were intergalactic, idioteque and dmt song

I've listened to this so many times already trying to properly digest it, and I very much enjoy this record. Definitely not my favorite of his though. IMO Cosmogramma completely blows this out of the water. But that's not to say this isn't a great album. It just feels... safer in a sense. However, I still love it and it will probably be amongst my favorites of the year. I think it's probably his most accessible work to date. There are some absolutely incredible moments.

I wonder who he's talking about...


"I'm torn — if I worked at it, I could make a radio thing, and like anyone, I'm curious about that. But I hate to meet people I admire and it turns out they're just motivated by money," Ellison said. "There was someone very close to me that I asked to play a party with me, and they said they weren't into cool parties or dope music anymore — they were into getting paid. All I could say back to that was, 'That's cool … .' "

FlyLo talks about the five albums that most influenced the current beat generation...

Aphex Twin – Richard D. James

Yeah, yeah. I mean Aphex, you’re pulling the warm stuff. I mean, the album was one that at the time I wasn’t really hit by it. It was one of those things that came in from college, but there’s a lot of shit on there that I still listen to all the time like “Girl/Boy Song” and “Milkman.” All those things are like when Aphex made his most successful record I think. It was the one where he sounded almost like pop songs.

I’m not taking away from it at all. Do I find it influential to my stuff? For sure. Especially in the feeling of it. I think people definitely make the association with that stuff because of the label too. It’s funny because I think I found the album Drukqs a little more influential to me.

Ok I seriously love this right here, talking about the new Thundercat album he's working on:


We already started on it. Before I started doing interviews I was going to ask him to play me the album, play me what the hell he thinks is gonna happen right now. I say it’s about 70 percent done. Musically I feel like it seems like it’s going a little bit darker than the last album. I mean Golden Age of The Apocalypse was the precursor to the apocalypse, now I feel its a little darker. Not like really dark, but I feel like it’s a little bit harder. I feel like you’re going to see more dance-y stuff on it too. I mean it might be too soon to be talking about all that though.

Darker, dancier, full apocalyptic Thundercat? I'm in.

What else do you have going on?

I’ve been working on a pilot for a TV show on Adult Swim. It’s called Cat Dick. I’ve been doing the music on that. Hopefully something happens with it. I want to do more of this kind of stuff and to get into the movie thing would be really interesting. Also, I’m working on the new Thundercat album, which is my current focus, but I still have other things that I have to do. We’ll see what happens, I’m writing a movie, maybe we’ll get into that.

I was able to go to Boiler Room last night. Really felt like an old school Low End with all the usual heads there. It was really easy to get up close and watch the performers. Lotus and Willow were the best i thought. Lotus killed it, the energy was great in that room while he played. most people there weren't into most of the performances. The rule of the night was anyone not performing had to wear a mask if they were in the field of view of the camera. took a few photos

This promo video for the new album is fucking fantastic; sounds like a return to Cosmogramma's space-funk odyssey, which has me very happy. Maybe I missed it in Spooks' copy pasta, but will there be full-length animations for each song?

I'm sure the LA show will be announced after FYF. Would also bet on another Coachella appearance.

This one, it turns out, was initially a jazz record, but two years later, the final product contains everything from prog time signatures to hip-hop verses, all unified as a 38-minute journey into and about the concept of death. "In the end, I thought to myself, 'I want to make an album that only I can make,'" he says

:)


How much should a listener consider the concept when they play the record?

Completely. Every decision that I made was because of the concept. There's no loose ends in this record. There's no like, "Oh, I'm just gonna put this on the album because it sounds dope." There were a lot of tracks I could have put on there – like club tracks, bangers, whatever – but they didn't fit conceptually so there was no point. I'm not gonna call the album You're Dead! and be like pop singles and shit, wobble bass and whatever.

When the tour was announced he tweeted that there was no LA show listed because there's something special planned that's going to be announced later.
