Abstract Butta Fingas

As though composing a varied and slow motion metropolis, its details emerging gradually from a haze of sodium vapor, its pastiche assembled anecdotally like a series of overlapping recollections, ABF’s tunes represent a distinct aural vision that is brooding and mischievous, both constructed and entropic. ABF’s work not only emphatically establishes a mood, but also carves out a sense of cognitive space, which further inspires a visual mind wandering, engaging the imagination in a three-dimensional experience.

As a student of architecture and with a particular interest in the relationship between spatial conception and sound ABF, née Mbela Endeley, approaches the crafting of his tunes with a focus on the space his sounds create. It was after studying architecture that Endeley first picked up an MPC, a device which could be described as a sonic construction tool, and began building tunes that combined the influence of his studies with a host of musical affinities that range from traditional African to contemporary grime and dubstep (along with the usual suspects you might find along this spectrum—hip hop, trip hop, dancehall, dub, blues, funk, jazz, electronica).
