SCIFI003: Like White Lightning Up A Black Snake’s Ass is Lamin Fofana’s first release on SCI-FI & FANTASY.
A – Like White Lightning Up A Black Snake’s Ass
B – %-} (Dizzy)
The single’s A-side, “Like White Lightning Up A Black Snake’s Ass,” soaks shakers and hand drums in a warm bath of glowing, analogue synthesizer tones. The marriage of earthly percussion arrangements with pulsating, otherwordly textures give us a glimpse into Fofana’s futurist aspirations.
The single’s B-side, “%-} (Dizzy)” is even more unusual, more robot than alien—prepare for an ice-cold 4am techno jam that will leave you dreaming of evil MS-DOS commands casting spells in Aramaic.
SCIFI003 follows the release of SCIFI002 by Berlin-based digital aesthete Lotic and SCIFI001, a jacking NYC house bomb from retrofuturist muscleman Max McFerren.
