“Our full-length record, ‘A Map Of Absences’ is a reflection on the regressive state of human rights, deepening refugee crises and the worsening impacts of climate change worldwide.  Imagine a world where refugees of color are free to cross borders, LGBTIA people are treated fairly and respectfully, and environmental healing technologies are widespread.   These ideas are unfortunately absent from our current reality.  We say ‘absent’ instead of ‘forgotten’ as the latter implies an instance of memory or a record of those things having existed.  Musically, we drew inspiration from artists such as DJ Lag, Nidia, DJ Rashad, Nihiloxica, and Epic B amongst our other varied global influences.  For the album artwork we tapped Marissa Malik, a UK based artist whose work evokes the mystical and empowered mythical beings.  For remixes, we returned to Kenyan maverick Slikback (Hakuna Kulala) and also approached PlayPlay (who ran the legendary “Party Illegal” in Durham NC for years) and the modular-synth wielding producer Nueve Vidas from Mexico City.”
