AbJo | Sankofa EP

A couple months ago we let you in on the secret known as AbJo, a San Diego-based musical genius making waves worldwide. Recently signed to Soulection, AbJo is slated to release his Sankofa EP shortly which proves to be a masterpiece (listen below) of epic proportion. Not only is AbJo an excellent musician, he is also a very awesome, down-to-earth, stylish dude! We can’t wait to hear more from AbJo [and Soulection].

"Sankofa means "to return from where you came from", and also to re-complete the cycle, the same cycle you’ve been completing since your soul has inhabited this existence. Sankofa resembles a soundscape that ranges from Future-Soul, Jazz, Eclectic-Fusion, Hip-Hop, & Deep-Thought sounds that trigger your mind into the thought of what The Sound of Tomorrow should sound like. AbJo designs a sound visual that incorporates heavy snares, hi-hats, future-drums, vintage-pianos, timeless-samples, & crisp synths that bring out your roots". -AbJo

Abjo Flips James Blake

Minty fam’s Abjo is back at it (as if he ever stopped)! This time with a jedi-ish flip of James Blake's “Wilhelm Scream”, which in it’s own right was amazing to begin with (see original below). This remix however, is absolutely fire.

Stay tuned for more from Abjo, and if you’re in Europe, Abjo is coming for you in the coming weeks. Follow him on Twitter for the up-to-date tour info.
