Gonjasufi 'Ancestors'

New signing on Warp Gonjasufi has the sort of voice that tells a million stories. To release his first album 'A Sufi and A Killer" Gonjasufi got help from The Gaslamp Killer, Mainframe and Flying Lotus but his voice and his delivery remain the focal point of the album. There is definitely an enigmatic and mystical atmosphere on the couple of tracks I've heard so far and it really works in transporting the listener to new musical landscapes.What a treat!

The beats and other electro & hip hop ingredients don't override the eastern influences and coarseness of the compositions, the result being quite psychedelic.
