Cosmogramma finds electronic mastermind Flying Lotus advancing his quest to redefine jazz and hip hop music in the twenty-first century. Meanwhile, his approaches to production reach new heights and staggering proportions, to dazzling and often intimidating results.

Increasingly complex rhythms and progressions pair with Flying Lotus’ flair for creating unlikely melodies out of spare parts to create an album which, elusive to genre, can only be called jazz.
