Roam from calming Senegalese and Malian kora to soulful ballad and electronic spoken word soundscapes.
Featuring excerpts from his forthcoming audio-visual project, to be exhibited at Paris’ Chapelle XIV Gallery this year; today’s mixtape is curated by Portable.
The South African electronic music producer, singer, and video artist, also known by his aliases Bodycode and Ranger, heads up his own label Khoikhoi Records and can be heard on his regular Rinse France show.
