Check out this ill behind-the-beats footage of Bulgarian electronic producer, KiNK, messing with his analog gear setup for his forthcoming album, ‘Under Destruction’. His arsenal of analog synths, sequencer, FX box, and filters, make for some spaced out goodness.

A great short doc on the recently re-issued and re-discovered Nigerian musician, William Onyeabor. Always interesting to hear the backstories on such elusive and enigmatic talent.

"…’Fantastic Man’ a documentary investigating Nigerian musician William Onyeabor…the film tells the story of a label’s attempt to track William down, speaking to fans such as Damon Albarn, Caribou and Femi Kuti and travelling to Nigeria to meet those who’ve worked with him in a bid to uncover the truth about his story."
