More Info:

Dear, Sudan, is a vibrant and polymathic labyrinth of moods and colours from African-born, Baltimore-based experimental hip-hop producer Infinity Knives,- aka producer and musician Tariq Ravelomanana. Moving from Tanzania (via Kenya, South Africa and Madagascar) to Baltimore with his family as a teenager, Tariq soaked up the raw, vociferous hip hop culture around him, devouring Western classical music, and embedding himself with the city's verdant music scene. This unique combination of life experiences and contrasting strands of musical education empowered and enabled him to create his Infinity Knives guise, allowing us a window into his singular energy. Dear, Sudan runs like a masterful showreel of deftly balanced disparate elements, a late night channel-hopping between multiple, vital, powerful musics. Tariq himself offers "experimental, drone, hip hop, leftfield minimalism, neo-classical and Baltimore" as his key styles.
