Gonja Sufi's new single, The Blame, will be released on March 26th, through Warp Records. It is taken from his new mini album MU. ZZ. LE, which was released in January 2012 as a CD; double 10" and as a special screen printed A2 poster, which was limited to 500 copies.
The video for The Blame follows Gonjasufi through a deserted Los Angeles. It was directed by Neil Krug.
Gonja Sufi's debut album, A Sufi and a Killer, was released in March 2010 and received positive reviews from critics. The album was produced by The Gaslamp Killer and Flying Lotus. The musician was also prominent in the 1990s, as part of the group Masters of the Universe. In addition to making music, Gonja Sufi - real name Sumach Ecks - is also a yoga teacher. He hails from San Diego and is currently living in the Mojave Desert. He recorded and mixed his mini album in his home studio in Las Vegas.
Fellow Warp recording artist and friend Flying Lotus quite appropriately describes Gonjasufi's music as "Timeless Incredible Filth".
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
