Listen: Mikael Seifu – The Lost Drum Beat

Mikael Seifu - The Lost Drum Beat

We haven’t featured Ethiopian producer Mikael Seifu for some time, but we put that right today. His penchant for melding electronic hardware and traditional Ethiopian sounds is as novel as ever here. The title track manoeuvres with all the mystifying, dubstep/garage jerks of a Burial number, yet this is slightly brighter and more bouncy territory. Nocturnal by nature, yet less forlorn and blessed with ghostly percussive intonations.

“My music is about vibrations. It does something to me and I want to immediately share that with people. It’s not Eastern, Western, or Martian. It’s about that impact. If that impact is not shared, it doesn’t matter” – Mikael Seifu

The track is off his latest project, The Lost Drum Beat which is out now via Washington D.C. label 1432 R.
