Music critic for the New Yorker and my personal idol teaches me a lot about new artists and music trends. His recent article December 1 issue talks of 

Steven Ellison, LA based producer, works under the name Flying Lotus and released an album this year entitled "Los Angeles." I own this album and I love it.
