Introducing Gonjasufi…

A Sufi (left) and a Killer

Meet LA rapper-turned-singer Gonjasufi. His debut album “A Sufi and a Killer” is out now on the ever reliable Warp records. It’s a strange brew of Eastern-psychedelica, R&B, blues, soul, lo-fi, and hip-hop all sung with a sort of funky, drugged-out Tom Waits croak. Produced by notable vinyl-dedicated DJ and hair-enthusiast, The Gaslamp Killer.

If this sounds slightly intriguing to you, read my review of the album at the KEXP blog.

You can play Gonjasufi’s “A Sufi and a Killer” from the hip-hop preview rack soon.

  1. thanks, i like using “post- ” when describing music cuz it makes your point seem modern. hip-hop doesn’t seem to really be “hip-hop” anymore and i think that dilla’s passing is a big part of that.
