9th & 10th May
“Gonja Sufi is the sound of someone exorcising their demons with nothing but a few pieces of gear and his own snarling weapon of a voice” – Resident Advisor
Soundcrash are extremely happy to announce that Warp Records master of mutated beats Gonjasufi will be performing two very special shows at Haggerstons 100 capacity railway arch venue, Echoes Live.
Gonjasufi is the alias the dreadlocked, dark-eyed, Mojave Desert-dwelling Sumach Ecks assumes for his current musical incarnation. It’s more accurate to describe him as a vocalist than a singer, as the sounds that he disgorges on his debut album, A Sufi and a Killer, traveling rapidly from warbling notes to gravelly wails and dry-throaty cackles. The haggardly psychedelic and Eastern-influenced feel of Gonjasufi is layered and complex.
Having collaborated with the likes of Flying Lotus and The Gaslamp Killer Gonjasufi has established himself as one of the LA beat scene’s most respected artists. Performances from this musical renegade in London are rare and the chance to catch this dreadlocked mastercraftsman in such an intimate space is unmissable. VERY limited tickets are up for grabs DO NOT MISS OUT!
“The rapper resembles a rabid, demented preacher caught in the ecstasy of religious exploration, flailing against the incoming apocalypse” – Clash
