Ethiopian Records Debuts on Warp’s Arcola Offshoot
'Ye Feqer Edaye / የፍቅር እዳዬ' EP is available now.
Ethiopian Records is one of the leading lights of Ethiopia’s burgeoning electronic music scene. Sometimes using nothing more than a PC, Ableton software, and a mouse, he makes his own eclectic brew of unique sonic textures which he named Ethiopiyawi Electronic, using electronic music tools and Ethiopian traditional music as the foundation of his music. He first started making music while in high school, experimenting with a wide spectrum of sound palettes, and has since shared a three-record run for 1432 R between 2015 and ’16.
We’re told that the Ye Feqer Edaye / የፍቅር እዳዬ 12″ features three tracks of “fully frontal psychedelic electronic body music.” It will be the label’s eighth release.
A1. Megbiya (Do You Believe In Things You Don’t See)
