Fly First - Flying Lotus
Question: Is Flying Lotus the Jazzy Jeff (or pick your favorite deejay) of computer deejays? I know he does production and all, but based on the "live" footage I've seen of his it seems like he's the Don Dadda of computer deejays. FYI, the question is not intended to spark a "computer deajays are wack" discussion thread because I already know how most of you feel about that. I'm really just asking because I don't know.

I don't understand,, so he just plays music off his computer?
Looks like he uses some controllers with his CPU, but it looks like he's a computer dj. But I'm not sure. That's why I posed the question
Looked like he uses an Akai APC 40 controller to trigger clips from the Ableton Live program he's using on his computer when he plays live.
Either he tries to fit 10,000 people into his hotel room... or he brings his studio (aka laptop) to the stage and throws a "live" party. Clearly he's not "DJing". He's doing a live studio mix.
I can't say I enjoy every tune he makes/plays, but I dig the FlyLo vibe. Good energy. His Lovers Melt mix series is worth checking out.
