Mr. Afro Bionic Djinji Brown brings us an eclectic palette of grooves and sounds that breathe deeply from the soul of music. ‘Djinji’s Corner’ cleverly reaches though his diverse influence creating an EP that is deep, primal and soul filled. His gift lies in the ability to take music to the edge, stretching beyond the limits of any one genre. As a tribute to his father, jazz artist Marion Brown, he used a song title taken from Marion’s album titled ‘Afternoon of a Georgia Faun’, written in 1970 in honour of the birth of his son.
‘Djinji’s Corner’ constructs a sonic journey of parallel rhythms that glide thorough jazz, hip-hop and house with the driving intensity of rock, fully expressing his signature “Afro Bionic” sound through each song, beginning with the synthetic symphonic sounds of ‘Autumn Brown’ to the rock rhythmic edge of ‘Spin’. ‘#1 Challenger’ tributes his love of the boxing ring with hype chants evolving into primal beats with all encompassing deep groove. Rounding out this four song EP is ‘Rusty Fingers’ which invigorates the avant-garde sound of his father Marion as it extended into the futuristic blending of Djinji's multi genre offerings. ‘Djinji’s Corner’ continues the ‘Afro Bionic’ journey through rhythms, genres and era’s as he continues to connect the past and future one measure at a time.
