Steven Ellison is the mastermind behind electronic Flying Lotus. Ellison, also known as Flylo or Captain Murphy, derives out of Los Angeles, California. He won a song submission for Adult Swim/Cartoon Network and started out under the name of Flying Lotus. Besides music, Ellison also attended Los Angeles Film School and Academy of Art University.
Flying Lotus has released five albums and a few EPs. He is currently signed to Warp Records. Ellison’s last record, You’re Dead!, was released in 2014. Pitchfork describes this album as, “… the music itself is frequently light and sometimes shamelessly goofy, treating mortality with the irrelevance and fascination of anything inescapable and knowable.”
