As the sun set, Steven Ellison set fire to the Samsung stage. Ellison, known by his stage name Flying Lotus, performed an experimental multi-genre amalgamation of sound, effortlessly combining hip-hop, EDM, pop and rock to start the night off right. Later on, Flying Lotus donned his “rap alter ego” Captain Murphey and proceeded to lay down several tracks from his 2012 self-headed rap side project Duality.

When he isn’t on tour at shows like Austin City Limits, Flying Lotus produces songs for artists such as Mac Miller and Kendrick Lamar in addition to recording episodes of “Why?” with Hannibal Buress as the in-studio disc jockey.
