Gonjasufi: delta blues influenced, lo-fi hip-hop
I found out about this guy through his collaborations with Flying Lotus, a name familiar to any electronica fan and more-so through his work with Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. Gonjasufi offers big breakbeats, with flashes of psychedelic made and found instruments.
The gravelly, wavering vocal style isn’t everybody’s cup of tea, but his latest release, A Sufi a Killer, on Warp Records, is definitely worth a listen. The track Ancestors (produced by Flying Lotus) is a good place to start into Gonjasufi’s spiraling maze of delta blues influenced, lo-fi hip-hop.
