When new musical offerings come from Gonjasufi, you can guarantee it will cause a barrage of emotional responses from various listeners. Those prone to the eerie tones of his sound palette will mainly be filled with delight, as output is rare from the artist who spends a decent proportion of his time doing Yoga in the American outback.

On his latest one, Callus, he glides blissfully between hip-hop, psychedelia and guitar rock, at times suffocating his vocals deep in distortion, though elsewhere, allowing his lyrics to properly sit with you.

Made over the course of four years, Callus draws on human ancestry and the state of global politics as lyrical inspirations, keeping Gonjasufi firmly in the conscious rapper box. The vibe is murky, harsh and jarring on the aptly titled album, truly creating a sound that is his own.

The opening tracks, ‘Your Maker’ and ‘Maniac Depressant’ are industrial Americana at their core, the lyrical content giving us an insight into the fractured mind of the creator. Elsewhere on the album, heavy effects define ‘The Conspiracy’, with the phlanger insinuating a weepiness to the dubby drones and hanging drums. The album is certainly an entity of its own, and we suggest you rejoice in its offerings.
