Flying Lotus and L.A.'s experimental music scene are poised to scoop up Grammys

Flying Lotus is everywhere at this year's Grammys, even when you can't see him.

The L.A. producer, born Steven Ellison, is up for his first nomination as an artist, a best dance recording nod for his song "Never Catch Me." That single, a hypnotic highlight from his well-received 2014 LP "You're Dead!," featured Kendrick Lamar on guest vocals. Ellison also contributed production work to Lamar's album "To Pimp a Butterfly," a politically charged and jazz-infused album considered a favorite to bring home top awards.
