Honk Tonk Clay

track by 'Nasty Drifts From Sequoia' EP

Apparel Tronic 009 is a stunning work by Artizhan, a new solo project by Franky B aka Cryptic Monkey, debuting on our frequencies. The EP’s called “Nasty Drifts From Sequoia” and from the title Artizhan wants to take us by the hand through a journey in his obsessive modern/mediterranean rhythms, “originated by the totemic secular Sequoia” and sublimated in a Dubcore kaleidoscope.
