The Tennessee-based artist formerly (or is that still?) known as milo, R.A.P. Ferreira has followed up last year’s 5 to the Eye with Stars record by quietly releasing the amazingly titled ASIATIQUE BLACK WIZARD LILY FUNK.
Recorded across just seven days at his Soulfolks Records & Tapes store, ABWLF sees Ferreira experimenting with woozy, psychedelic lofi sounds, with the record featuring 8 cuts across just 19 minutes.
In classic cryptic fashion, the album’s description states:
“ASIATIQUE BLACK WIZARD LILY FUNK
is an ode to the 8 path and a means to keep the lights on
in times of peril, there will be singing.
though there are torturers
there are also musicians.”
Thankfully, that includes R.A.P. Ferreira:
