The above image is artwork I made for Melbourne based producer VOODOO DRED. His self titled EP has just been released on Brisbane based internet label Dub Temple Records.
Vadim describes his sound and sonic inspiration:
“The concept of what I want to create is to continue the west african tradition of a Griot but in an urban, contemporary sense. Going back to traditional african beats and translating them into a hip hop context, I believe traditional african drumming is the original “trance” music because back in the day they would play these rythms for days on end and literally get into a trance.” – VJ
