It’s pretty wack that space and time travel aren’t mainstream and/or available to the general public by now, which is why we’re still forced to rely on wordly outdated tropes like “art” and “music” to transport us through alternate dimensions. Le #sigh. Thankfully, wunderkind producer Djemba Djemba, fresh off his recent Australian tour with DJ Hoodboi and en route to SXSW for some big things, recently sent out a somewhat cryptic tweet along with a link to Coma, a creeping 10-minute audio preview first shared via to.be, that puts your mind in a new room by the time you grow slightly accustomed to the previous one; a maze without walls that leaves more questions than it does answers.

 

So what is Coma? An EP preview? Merely a shared exploration? Depends who you ask, and Djemba is keeping mum for now. Whatever the case may be, the mystery has us hooked, and the audio/visual landscape he’s created has us shattered into a million crystal shards across the sky, waiting patiently for a defining axis to orbit.
