Ethiopian Beatmaker Mikael Seifu Shares 'Brass'
Addis Ababa-based producer Mikael Seifu shares the slow-building 13-minute single "Brass," off his upcoming 'The Lost Drum Beat' release.
Addis Ababa-based beatmaker Mikael Seifu dropped the stunning and hypnotic "The Lost Drum Beat” earlier this month, the lead single off his upcoming 2-track release on Washington, D.C. imprint 1432 R. The Ethiopian producer is now sharing the release's 13-minute B-side "Brass," a slow-building, free-form electronic composition that evolves from a minimal introduction into a beat built on UK garage, Ethiopian folk sounds and looping saxophone sirens.
