Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma album
For 26-year-old Steve Ellison's deservedly hyped third album, Flying Lotus loosened the reins and set out to make Cosmogramma, which his label, Warp, promoted as a space opera of sorts. More of a long-playing, cohesive listen than the prior year’s excellent Los Angeles, which felt like a collection of insular, Dilla-inspired beats, Flying Lotus evolved into a forerunner of his own personal genre. On this, his most far-out release to date, he incorporates a thicker amount of live instrumentation (horns, strings, bass, guitar, and even harp) with his laptop manipulations, and branches away.

Cosmogramma is an album by Flying Lotus, released on May 3, 2010, on Warp Records. The title comes from an incident when he was listening to an Ashram lecture from his great-aunt Alice Coltrane and he misheard the words "cosmic drama" as cosmogramma. The album was awarded the top spot in Exclaim! Magazine's annual ranking of Electronic albums.
Flying Lotus blasts off into another galaxy on Cosmogramma, a celestial mixture of jazz, hip-hop, 8-bit videogame sounds, and more. The producer’s arrangements are at once soothing and kinetic; they shuffle and ping like a web of organic moving parts on electro-jazz cuts like Pickled! and the dubby, cinematic Zodiac S t And the World Laughs with You wriggle alongside Thom Yorke’s unearthly croon, while throwback freak-out Arkestry nods to the original cosmic. deity, Sun Ra.

Despite a fond love for jazz, the album weaves in and out of numerous styles that have all been largely influential on FlyLo, and "Cosmogramma" has an incredible range of sounds because of it. "Recoiled" gives us a dirty bassline, yet the harps and subtle vocal sampling give it a very warm feeling. The feeling of warmth also comes from the fact that FlyLo recruited several prominent jazz musicians, ranging from bassist Thundercat to saxophonist (and Ellison's counsin) Ravi Coltrane, to write and record the instruments that make up the bulk of the album And T. .
