Pattern+Grid World

Pattern+Grid World is the new EP from warp records' Experimental hip-hop sound demon Flying Lotus (Steven Ellison). In 2010 he released his third studio effort, Cosmogramma, a beautiful gem of electronic wonder and marvel, recieving huge praise and reaching an impressive rank #14 of pitchfork medias greatest of 2010. The EP is to preceed his next release, the Cosmogramma Alt Takes. The incredible illustration for the artwork produced by Theo Ellsworth is also on my favorite pieces of artwork from last year, just look at it.

'Kill Your Co-Workers' by Beeple. Looks fun.

Warp records had this to say about the ep:

While Cosmogramma is a monolithic convergence of 20th and 21st century musical forms, high in concept and wide in musical collaboration, Pattern+Grid World pulls the focus back to Steven Ellison and his machines. These machines are speaking (and possibly looking as well, judging by the EP's cover) from the go, as "Clay" introduces itself in a fog of synth and vocoder and gives way to one of the many surprises here, the schizophrenic ping-ponging electro of "Kill Your Co-Workers". Drenched in alternating melodies, it's a synthetic counterpart to the grand string and harp arrangements of Cosmogramma, making acclaimed illustrator Theo Ellsworth's subtly psychedelic cover image of vision-through-noise all the more intimate.
