Expect belated fireworks when Flying Lotus beams down to the London Troxy on November 16 - the American's only date in the capital on tour to promote his new album, Until The Quiet Comes.
The precocious Los Angeles-born Steven Ellison, who can count spiritual jazz duo John and Alice Coltrane among his relatives (and influences), turns 29 on October 7, a week after his fourth album is released.
And since the musician-producer's first offering, 1983 - the year of his birth - dropped six years ago FlyLo's star has continued to ascend. Catch him while you can on a rare trip to London, and bask in this illuminator's explosive performance.
That it's tricky to pin a fitting genre tag - wildly experimental, spiritual dance, space-synth? - only adds to his appeal. And two years after Cosmogramm confirmed him as a stellar artist (Zodiac Shit and Do The Astral Plane, in particular, highlighted his playful diversity), Until the Quiet Comes is set to elevate him even higher.
The Troxy, one of architect George Coles' art deco cinemas which sprung up in the 1930s (and, with 3,520 seats, the largest in the country at the time), is an ideal venue for FlyLo. His sets are significantly augmented by trippy graphics, and the potential for a visual wonder show to accompany his new album at this spacious, grand venue is mouth-watering.
For those lucky enough to have a ticket it has all the elements to be one of the most memorable gigs of a lifetime. And one thing is for sure, until the quiet comes expect plenty of mind-bending music and a wholly sensational experience at the Troxy.
