Besides having a name that’s tricky to pronounce, Massacooramaan’s productions are also deceptively complicated; each song from his debut EP on Fade to Mind opens with five-cent-simple percussive beats that then become intricately layered with all kinds of rococo riddims. On “Aww Shit,” the Portland-based producer beautifully works an elegant Egyptian-style woodwind in with fast drums and an even faster vocal sample, and the rest of the EP follows suit with echoed, beat up church choirs and a dancehall song that somehow turns into a video game soundtrack. To celebrate the release, Fade to Mind is also giving away an Nguzunguzu remix, which you can download here.
