Afrikan Sciences / Circuitous

Published :    Tags : , , ,   

Multi-faceted Bronx artist and co-founder of Oakland company Deepblakmusic Eric Douglas Porter aka Afrikan Sciences just released his fourth long-length effort via Bill Kouligas’ PAN.  Circuitous is a psychedelic journey from hip-hop abstractions, East Coast’s 90s house, free jazz, indigenous African and Latin rhythmical explorations looking for a universal language able to marry different tempos and rhythms. From Cairo to the stars, the proper Afrofuturistic sound inspired by the king and astral traveler Sun Ra, 80s electro DJ Afrika Bambaataa and sci-fi writer Octavia Butler.
