    With such a varied guest list and the guidance of experimental maestro FlyLo, it should come as no surprise that Flamagra draws on everything from hip-hop and jazz to global dance music and IDM. A press release describes it as perhaps “the definitive” FlyLo record, “an astral afro-futurist masterpiece of deep soul, cosmic dust, and startling originality.”

    In a statement, FlyLo (né Steven Ellison) talked about the role of fire, which is seen in his press photos and album artwork, in his overall vision for the record:

    “I’d been working on stuff for the past five years, but it was always all over the place. I’d always had this thematic idea in mind — a lingering concept about fire, an eternal flame sitting on a hill. Some people love it, some people hate it. Some people would go on dates there and some people would burn love letters in the fire.”

    Flamagra will be supported with a North American tour this summer.
