Reports Of My Demise encompasses 5 songs about ghosts, love and the ocean, set against an ellipse of changing musical texture. Haj i Ji (formerly of Sub Swara, Freek Factory, Nyxyss) and a troika of naiads tell tales of the depths. Each song features lead vocals by either Kai Altair, Sariyah Idan, or Meaghan Williams (a beloved 5Rhythms teacher). This EP spans a range of musical genres, from late night Acid-House to soul stirring Torch-Song and probes the depths of loss, hope, soulful longing, and the quest for meaning.
Haj i Ji is an artist whose style can be best defined by a willingness to travel across existing borders. His music, like his life, is a grand and original adventure, honoring and reverent of the essential truths found in all traditions. Ever elusive, he defies all attempts to be confined to a specific genre, time or place.
Peace and love,
