Mellow hip hop, bordering on UK grime and at times darker, more sinister rhythms – Mind Like Water is a purely original piece of sonic art. From the depths of his being, Abdullah Al-wali aka Darkstorm of London, UK brings us this album brimming with soul and steeping with curiosity toward the darker side of life.
These are the frequencies from which we guard our sleeping children when we sing to them before sending them off into the dream time, where they otherwise might be haunted by the sights and sounds of Adam’s original wife, Lilith. But, as adults we relish in these sounds, that bring us to the edge of awareness…. To that strange place between sleep and dream. Our minds are strange in this way. And so is this music.
