Ash Koosha is so much more than a musician, not in a gauche way but in a manner that’s completely necessary. There is a density to his beats, he creates world that lets the listener piece together their own track. A musical choose-your-own-adventure. Koosha brings together fractious beats, creating a sound that is disconcertingly disjointed and united – never just one thing at the same time. In short, it’s really exciting.
“Mudafossil” is taken from I AKA I which is out now on Ninja Tune.
The video was directed by long-time collaborators Hirad Sab and Dalena Tran who said: “'Mudafossil’ follows the journey of the modern man in the course of transition from being to arbitrary completion. Inspired by Sufi teachings and the discipline of purification of inner self, Mudafossil portrays man through the esoteric path (tarîqât) towards mystical truth (haqiqa) and finally unio mystica (marifa) or the ultimate knowledge."
Ash Koosha headlines the ICA on 4 June. Tickets are available here
