The Ethiopian producer releases his latest single.

Addis Ababa-based electronic musician Mikael Seifu continues his run of impressive releases for DC’s 1432 R imprint with his latest digital single, ‘The Lost Drum Beat’.

Unlike the dance-floor-ready A-side — with its frenetic, garage-laced percussion — B-side ‘Brass’ is meditative and deliberate, gradually building over a series of movements. What begins as a fidgety electronic composition adds a loping beat, an electric solo and bits of Ethiopian folk and jazz before reaching its climax; its woozy come-down is longer that most tracks.

Many musicians boast about making music you can get lost in — Seifu has delivered. Stream ‘Brass’ below and cop the single on Bandcamp. Read more about Seifu’s interesting story in our interview from last summer.
