Mikael Seifu, an Electronic music producer & performer from Ethiopia, debuts with 1432 R with a fusion of Ethiopian folk, UK garage & his own dream brew, which he calls "Ethiopian electronic." Futuristic, other worldly, and spiritual energies are neatly balanced with fierce intensity. Truly in a league of its own.

Born and raised in Addis Ababa, Seifu attended the French school Lycee Guebre-Mariam as a child, and went on to study music production at Ramapo College of New Jersey. 

His debut EP, Yarada Lij, draws from a long list of musical influences including Endeguena Mulu, Ben Neill, Burial, Zion Rebels, and R.F.
