Of its title he said "The Sufi side of life has helped me with my killer side so I try not to attach myself to any label

producer Gaslamp Killer, Gonjasufi has found a powerful outlet for his otherworldly strain of singing. Together they've created A Sufi and a Killer, one of the most fascinating slabs of hallucinogenic head-nod music to arise from Southern California's post-hip-hop vanguard. Unlike the digital bleeps and squelches of SoCal contemporaries FlyLo and Nosaj Thing, however, Gaslamp Killer and Gonjasufi draw from their hip-hop background to create an LP that could as easily fit on the Stones Throw roster as well as it does IDM-centric Warp.
Indian-inspired psychedelia from Gonjasufi, whose debut, A SUFI AND A KILLER, is drenched in dub and guitar effects. Kobwebz," despite its spelling, invokes a slow caravan across the Gobi ("Ageing" takes the same country-western track, though with a bit more twang), while "Ancestors" benefits from Flying Lotus' abstract hip-hop beats. Then, to provide contrast, comes the sleazy listening of "Sheep" which ends on a rocking note. From acid infused rock to influences from the pre-hip-hop era, the album strokes your inner mental child into a trippy daydream where the lyrics are as haunting as the ghost of Woodstock beats. Really dug this debut, and I am looking forward to more output from the duo.
A Sufi and a Killer is nearly impossible to place or categorize, and this ageless quality is only embellished by Gonjasufi 's vocal work, which at times sounds like a mystic channeling spirits from another dimension.

Album: A Sufi and a Killer. When I first heard this album in March of 2010 streaming on Fader. I thought of it as hip-hop but at that time there wasn’t really a place for words like psychedelic, fuzzy, swirling, or sitar-filled to describe that genre. It was Gonjasufi’s work on one track off of Flying Lotus’ 2008 album Los Angeles that drew me to this guy. This song in particular, is just a sweet groove. The repetitive vocal sample builds throughout and the simple bass is funky. Gonjasufi’s fuzzed out voice is the star though, as it is on the rest of the album.
