The AfroFuturist Affair

A Charity & Costume Ball

The first sign of a psychosis is a Christ complex” The Lawnmower Man.

On ‘95’s Psychosis, The RZA’s diabolical atmosphere evacuates standard song structure, replacing it with a miasma of swarming drones, infernal sighs, disembodied moans and magnified breathing.

The beats don’t keep time; instead they drag time down into a drugged tempo. A high-pitched hum insinuates through the track, deliberately inducing new and improved tinnitus, the perpetual ringing of the ears that you can never switch off. No earlids.
