Immaculate Rivombo – Psychic Bridge From Bujumbura
Release date: 26 September 2017
Making a debut appearance on last year’s Invisible EP#6 compilation we’re very happy to be able to release a full 4-track 12″ from the enigmatic Immaculate Rivombo.
Originally from Burundi, Immaculate has been living in Berlin for the last five years where she’s been honing her sound: a fresh fusion of the city’s infamous love of techno with the wholly organic sounds of her homelands adding a welcome warmth to the recordings: live djembe and mbira as well as Berber square drum, metal castanets, bongos, guiro and jew’s harp. Combined with her signature use of TB-303 the concoction brings entirely new meaning to the term “tribal” techno.
She has produced an EP that manages to sound uplifting and spiritual at the same time as it dives headlong into a dark, dubby, deeply psychedelic dimension.
Definitely one to watch out for.
