  • Flying Lotus - Reset EP
Label: Warp

Flying Lotus is the first high profile addition to the instrumental hip-hop scene for sometime now to gain any real recognition as actually contributing something of merit, and has pushed his digital pulse all the way from mobile phone adverts to the true heart of electronic auteurism, Warp records. Opening track Tea Leaf Dancers, the only vocal track here, is a seductive and sultry post-midnight slow dancer with top 40 written all over it, but it doesn't steal the show from the rest of the non-vocal content; chunky electrified head boppers with an air of the socially-conscious. Closing after only six all too short tracks, appetites are set to be properly whet for his November live shows. [Jack McFarlane]
