Albums Of The Decade : 15 - Flying Lotus - Los Angeles (2008)

A record that still reveals new layers and textures months after you’ve first heard it, Los Angeles, the second LP from Californian Flying Lotus (aka Steven Ellison) is an utterly addictive blend of liquid, ambient grooves, smoky hip-hop beats, off-kilter percussion, skittering electronica and crackling background static. It’s an album you can lose yourself in, with each track – be it the woozy, disorientating ‘GNG BNG’, ‘Golden Diva’’s subaquatic ambience or ‘RobertaFlack’’s hazy trip-hop – bleeding seamlessly into the next, until the gorgeous, hypnotic ‘Auntie’s lock/Infinitum’ provides the perfect curtain-closer.
