about

For the third instalment on Kutmah’s experimental IZWID imprint, south London DJ and producer Al Dobson Jr. creates a 15 track deep, exploration of soulful, tribal drums and abstract musical curation.

Otherworldly and nuanced beats re-imagine the score of the sampledelic funk tale. One that’s non-geographical but rather lost in loops, journeying through the time and space that exists within your headphones. Alternating between cosmic vocal rips and a myriad of loose, soul-infused beat tape-style sketches with its digital flourishes, “Sounds from the Village Vol. 1” sees the sunrise and sunset over a bohemian musical vista.

As with all of the output on IZWID, Kutmah’s hand drawn artwork brings to life the story of the release, revisiting a boundary-less and positive manifesto that reputes the tyranny of genre.
