'Wordless Music Series Presents Flying Lotus & Kode9'
For a man obsessed with a whiplash breakbeat style he deems "retro-futurism," the present looks pretty sweet for Flying Lotus. After a debut that slotted him firmly in the Madlib/J. Dilla camp, Fly-Lo elevated to the Warp label for his breakout Los Angeles, even getting love up in The New Yorker. Come May, he's set to leap into hyperspace with his follow-up, Cosmogramma, not to mention a gig opening for Thom Yorke. Kode9 gets love for his dubstep tracks, but now the man has unleashed a tome entitled Sonic Warfare: Sound, Affect, and the Ecology of Fear. Bomb the bass, indeed.
