After receiving thousands of nominations of LA favorites; from restaurants, theaters, shops, DJs, and venues, to bars, salons, spas, and more, LA Weekly just crowed the winners for its Best of’s 2015 awards and published the results in its big “Best of LA” issue. After pursuing the best of just about everything that the diverse city of Los Angeles had to offer, LA Weekly took the time to collect the “very best of the very best” finds from its year-round city scavenger hunt and presented it all in one, comprehensive guide.

Among its many categories, the publication’s “Best of” issue sported a reader’s choice section, which compiled reader’s votes for LA’s best band, rapper, DJ, local record label, street artist and more. After calculating thousands of votes, experimental, multi-genre producer, DJ and rapper, Flying Lotus was crowed the winner of LA Weekly’s ‘Best Solo Artist’. This award is more than well-deserved, as Flying Lotus is one of the few electronic artists who utilizes his extremely alternative and in-tuned individuality to outshine his peers and garner mass success through his mind bending productions and out-of-this-world stage rigs. As one of LA Weekly’s voters stated, “Not only has his music inspired and helped me, he has influenced a whole community. He is the greatest.”
