Endeguena Mulu's Ethiopian Dubstep

Addis Ababa-based producer Endeguena Mulu's Ethiopian electronic bass productions.

E.R. (Ethiopian Records) is the production moniker of Endeguena Mulu, an Addis Ababa-based producer putting out highly eclectic and intriguing beats that blend elements of dub, Ethio-jazz, bass, and dubstep in a progressive-electronic sonic frame.
