Flying Lotus is a beat-maker who’s been called the “electronic Jimmy Hendrix” for a reason. His albums synthesize the sounds of psychedelic rock, West Coast hip-hop, trap, and jazz. Jazz is arguably Lotus’s greatest influence—hanging above his piano at home is a portrait of his great-aunt, Alice Coltrane. Hypnotic and atmospheric, his synthy-smooth songs are a flight through harmony. Let Flying Lotus be your pilot. —C.J.F.
