Afrofraktal is noise funk and whatever inbetween. "The dual coast collaboration between underground innovators R/KainBlaze and Muata25 (also known as Blast Murray) sculpt system subversion through experimental soundscapes and politically vulgar lyrics strung together with disjointed rhythms. Experimental, challenging and redefining, Afrofraktal is the continuing roar of the iconoclast. Collaboration is through the internet from the home bases of South Bronx, New York and South Central Los Angeles. The tracks communicate revolution in unique ways refusing to be defined by a supposed "east" or "west" coast sound - or even the straight-jacket hip hop production tone. The polarizing production style/sound is raw and more akin to early Funkadelic, dub plate, and the albums of the early and mid 1980s hardcore (Bad Brains, The Minute Men) resonating clanging industrial vibes reflective of societal chaos. R/Kain Blaze is an artist who has won international animation awards, published his own magazine "Freestyle" and founded the legendary L.A. rap showcase venue the "Good Life". Muata25 was a session musician who has transitioned programmer/song designer. He has performed in productions by 'Tony' award winning director George Wolfe. He has toured with the Talking Heads, and Terence Trent D'Arby. He has worked with producers Lee 'Scratch' Perry, Conny Planck, Martin Ware, and Rene Tinner. He has music in films by Denzel Washington and Samuel L. Jackson. Muata25 is polishing a new dance EP.
