Ibaaku - "Alien Cartoon" album + 2 exclusive unreleased tracks.

Alien Cartoon was conceived as a soundtrack for Senegalese designer Sely Raby Kane's fashion show. Ultimately when Ibaaku and Sely went over the tracks to match them to the show, two songs didn't make the cut, their vibe leaning a bit too far towards hip hop and electro to fit the show. We are very excited to release these two unreleased songs today - Bandcamp exclusive!

J. Taliaferro Africanfuturism in sonic form.
Rhythms catch and won't let go.
It cascades with harmony and dissonance, flowing from one to the other, flawlessly, seamlessly. Favorite track: Ilwaa.

about

After several evocative pseudonyms, Ibaaku chose his first name in Djola for this new project, marking a turning point for this multidisciplinary artist.

Born in Dakar, but originally from Casamance, Ibaaku is a prolific artist; not only a producer but also a multi-instrumentalist, author, composer and radio host.

Before launching his solo career, he has worked for a few years with the best Senegalese hip-hop artists, including Xuman, Keyti, Daara J (Faada Freddy's group) and PPS. He furthermore remains a key member of the collective I-Science.

Ibaaku also collaborates regularly with other cultural and artistic fields, such as fashion, visual arts and video. The already cult record « Alien Cartoon »was born from the collaboration between the Senegalese designer Selly Raby Kane (who dressed Beyoncé among others) and Ibaaku, (who composed the music for one of her fashion shows).

Both hip-hop and experimental electro music, blended with Senegalese references and remixed local sounds, represent the major influences of the DJ’s first opus. Here and there, some great references to the Beat Scene and its leader Flying Lotus can be found. We may also think of Sun Ra as an intellectual and visual reference, notably because of the Afro-futuristic imagery proposed by the two artists.

Let yourself go on the Seneg-Alien’s space shift to measure the unique power of this cosmic being from Dakar’s nights !
