In his Pseudarhythm series, Khartoum-based beatmaker Sufyvn flips and samples an array of Sudanese instrumentals into hip-hop head bangers.

The seven tracks on the producer’s latest Pseudarhythm, Vol. 2 play like a hazy, mind-bending exploration of classic Sudanese soundscapes through a hip-hop lens. Sufvyn chops up several traditional Sudanese folk melodies, masterfully laying them over kicks and snares to create some buttery beats.

Get lost in Sufyvn’s Psedauryhthm Vol. 2 below and make sure to check out the beatmaker’s other projects M E R O E, K E R M A, and Pseudarhythm, Vol. 1.
