Taking the stage at the very ripe hour of 1:30 am, Steven Ellison, better known as Flying Lotus played a DJ set at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge on March 31, 2010. The hip-hop and electronica DJ has a new record called ‘Cosmogramma’ due next month and the record is so hot, he even enlisted Thom Yorke of Radiohead to do some guest vocals. Sadly, Mr. Yorke was not present to make a surprise appearance on stage tonight, but I’ll be seeing him next week and I am super excited for that! The sold-out crowd had been warmed up by two previous DJ sets, so by the time Flying Lotus came on, the crowd was a little sweaty. One of the funniest observations I noticed was that people in the front row near me were taking pictures like they were going out of style. Sure, Flying Lotus had some pretty cool projections on the screens behind him, but based on the photo taking, you’d think we were witnessing a Pink Floyd reunion. At any rate, I had fun and I am looking forward to ‘Cosmogramma.’
