Drawing comparisons to everybody from Jimi Hendrix and Thom Yorke to Aphex Twin and Akufen, Flying Lotus is now considered one of music’s premiere producers in any genre, and now this young visionary has announced he will embark on a run of Australian tour dates for 2014.
Presented by The Operatives, a collective of polymath musicians and curators of the notorious Espionage gigs, Flying Lotus will return to appease his fervent Australian cult following, which first congregated when the producer attended 2003’s Red Bull Music Academy in Melbourne.
Since then, Flying Lotus, real name Steven Ellison, has become a singular entity in the world of live performance with his highly-acclaimed Layer 3 audio-visual performance, which debuted in Australia at the 2013 Let Them Eat Cake Festival, and has since been upgraded to version 3.0.
Playing alongside Flying Lotus will be Operatives favourites Kutmah and Om Unit. Flying Lotus’ 2014 Australian tour kicks off at Melbourne’s The Forum on Friday, 28th February, before continuing onwards at The Hi-Fi in Brisbane on Thursday, 6th March. Check below for all details.
UPDATE 5:20pm 19/01/14: The Operatives have announced that joining Flying Lotus on his upcoming Australian tour will be Hollywood DJ and Dublab member, Kutmah, and London-based artist Om Unit. Joining this international lineup will be acclaimed Australian producer Silent Jay.
