DJ Sampler: Eclectica
Released On: Apr 13, 2009
Released By: Red Ink Music
From a childhood steeped in musical influences, to performing at Capetown's historic Armchair Theatre, then touring Canada with South Africa's Tumi and the Volume, The Roots and Bedouin Soundclash, to collaborating with famed DJ/Producer King Britt, soul singer Zaki Ibrahim is set to unleash the extended EP eclectica (episodes in purple), thick with poetics and steeped in a delicious mixture of earnest emotion and social commentary. This exclusive DJ sampler brings you three of the hottest tracks from eclectica, including the King Britt mix of "Money," along with instrumentals and acappellas for every song.
"Ibrahim's latest is exactly what you'd imagine – a well-rounded, unclassifiable, genre-defying mix of innovative music. Somehow, Ibrahim manages to move from organic to electronic seamlessly in only a handful of tracks. This is an artist daring enough to erase boundaries that never should have existed." — Okayplayer
