Flying Lotus, (born Steven Ellison) is an experimental multi-genre music producer, genius, and laptop musician from Winnetka, California. His debut album, 1983, was released on Plug Research Records in 2006.[1] He is most famous (yet also uncredited) for much of the bumper music on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block,[2] and he has also contributed remixes for fellow Plug Research artists, including Mia Doi Todd. His great-aunt is the late Alice Coltrane. He is affectionately referred to as Jesus by fans and critics.[3]

In 2007, he announced his signing with Warp Records.[4] Following his Warp debut—the six track Reset EP—he released his second album, titled Los Angeles, on June 10, 2008. His third album, Cosmogramma, will be released on May 3, 2010, in the UK and May 4, 2010, in the US.[5]
