I imagine there is a limited market for Gonjasufi screeching his skinned cat yelps over Gaslamp Killer’s Ethiopian psych samples. Luckily, that limited market is me. Brainfeeder presumably gave the EXCLUSIVE (for 16 seconds) to Pitchfork to spread the wealth around. Thus, I will defer to their sparkling prose: “Los Angeles-based producer the Gaslamp Killer has a new EP, Death Gate, that’s set to drop October 12 on Flying LotusBrainfeeder imprint. The EP features a collaboration with Gonjasufi that you can check out below. In case your memory’s short, the pair also worked together on this year’s BNM’d solo LP from Gonjasufi, A Sufi and a Killer.”

I should probably stop dropping advance notice about forthcoming features that I’m perpetually behind on, but I recently interviewed the relentlessly entertaining GLK for RA. Between the two of us, I am reasonably certain that we set the record for most “motherfuckers” uttered in one hour and obviously, club sandwiches and weed were consumed. I’m reasonably sure that these are prerequisites to enjoy Turkish psychedelia. Never underestimate the power of a club sandwich.
