i really can’t say enough about this artist. i’m absolutely head over heels in love with the whole thing. big collaborations with flying lotus and the gaslampkiller and the title of “the ELECTRO HEDRIX”. this man is something very special and his debut album, ‘a sufi and a killer’ out on WARP now is out of this world. however, as hard a i try once i read this article i couldn’t put it better so here’s an excerpt,

“Under his Gonjasufi alias, San Diego-born, Las Vegas-based yoga teacher Sumach Valentine has been called many things – “hip-hop mystic”, “nomad soul”, even “Method Man aged 95” – but it’s the “electro Hendrix” tag that will suffice for now. “Jimi Hendrix sacrificed himself to get humanity to a higher frequency; he’s perfection to me,” enthuses the 32-year-old down the line, in the scraggy, smoked-out drawl that colours his debut album A Sufi And A Killer. “I had a dream one time that I was at an outdoor Hendrix concert and all of a sudden, as Jimi walked towards the stage, our eyes locked, man. It was just fucking intense. Intense. When I woke up, I felt like he was checking on me, like, ‘Hey, I’m watching you bro.'”

his album is incredible and you should purchase it >>>>>>here<<<<<< however, you can also stream it from his channel on warp.net along with a huge amount of goodies including interviews, videos, artwork and more.

  1. ITs Also gaslamp killers album aswell the whole thing is a collabaration….credit where its due i think!!!!

  2. This is not a collection for the iPod era, but one piece of art – the best analogy I can conjure is, ‘A Sufi and a Killer’ is a collection of short stories where Raymond Carver, Anais Nin, Allen Edgar Poe and Kafka sit shoulder to shoulder, clashing, biting, tearing at the sinews, but somehow connected.
