We're going back to the Future again with a one night Brainfeeder festival featuring their top artists who constantly push the boundaries of innovative music. FLYING LOTUS headlines this epic event along side Brainfeeder artists, Thundercat, Austin Peralta and Teebs. Fresh on the heels of his latest 12" release in April, Comsogramma Alt Takes, the follow up to last years, Cosmogramma (8.8 on the Pitchfork scale!), and the highly praised, Los Angeles, FLYING LOTUS is back to knock your socks off . He's been subtly vying for the role of leader of the West Coast future-hop revolution, amassing an army of like-minded experimental producers for his digital label Brainfeeder. A sound not heard since the likes of Squarepusher or Autechre, Los Angelino and Warp Record's new poster boy FLYING LOTUS aka FlyLo has soared into the spotlight over the last year as one of the most talked about emerging acts. Cosmogramma, has garnered top reviews and attention worldwide, it is described as 'an intricate, challenging record that fuses his loves- jazz, hip-hop, video game sounds, IDM -into something unique.' His experimental post-hip hop electronic mayhem will hit your body in a way that can't be defined.
The Brainfeeder label was started in 2008 in Los Angeles by alt.hop pioneer Flying Lotus, and hosts an array of alternative electronic talent, loosely characterized by a shared desire to disrupt the well-trodden beat template, whether through the twisted odd-hop of Samiyam, the Gaslamp Killer's broken beats and sinister psychedelia or the trippy glitched ruminations of Fly Lo himself. Essentially, the label's musical ethos is simple but highly effective: "Experimentation," says Adam Stover, Brainfeeder's Label Manager. "Brainfeeder is many ideas in one," he explains. "At the time when we began, many of our artists were considered ‘outsiders' in the musical landscape of Los Angeles, and the rest of the world for that matter. The label is a vehicle to express, in any form that our artists choose, their sound and vision without constraint."
