Ethnofusion

Ethnofusion was a comprehensive monthly guide column for Outtallectuals by Baxtak, periodically discovering the most innovative new world electronic fusion music. In this blog Outtallectuals covers a range of fusion genres, namely ethnic, oriental and tribal Middle Eastern dub, trap, drum n bass, IDM & mid-tempo bass music. 

Ethnofusion was eventually merged with the Shivelight platform as a co-curation between Outtallectuals & Samaya.

Ethnofusion Picks #April2017

YAHNA – Paraphilia Taken from an unexpectedly good album by this rather underground artist; a project that sounds highly atmospheric and experimental, with plenty of interesting foley twists to it. Sitting somewhere between instrumental hip-hop produced by The Alchemist’s poltergeist, the sound of time if traversed on a reverse axis, ...
