The incredible musicianship and artistry of Steven Ellison, more popularly known as Flying Lotus, was the focus on The Gabeyard Shift this week.
A huge player in the early incarnation of the LA beat scene, he’s continued to push the boundaries of his music with every new release. Having come from such incredible music pedigree, he’s the great nephew of John and Alice Coltrane, it’s no surprise he creates such interesting and eclectic music.
An artist in the true sense of the word, you could dedicate many hours to going deep on FlyLo and his influences, but this week I just dipped my toes in on what makes him the musician he continues to be.
You can listen back to the whole darn show right here.
