Although his lineage is deeply rooted in jazz music, Steve Ellison has firmly cemented himself in history as a tastemaker and leader in electronic music under the moniker Flying Lotus. Since breaking onto the scene with his debut studio album “1983,” FlyLo’s creations have been keeping experimental beatmakers and musicians alike scratching their head like, “How the f*** does he come up with this sh*t?” and his live shows are no exception.
Thanks to the good folks at the Red Bull Music Academy, Flying Lotus will be bringing the unique sound, style and showmanship of his “Layer 3″ spectacle to Terminal 5 in NYC. Joining him is Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich’s band Ultraísta, Brainfeeder’s Thundercat, and 2013 Academy participant En2ak. We know this is a show you won’t want to miss, so we’re giving you a chance to win tickets to see it!
