Hailing from Florence, based in Sydney, and creating music that seems to reference a multitude of other cultures in between, producer Ribongia is probably one of the most worldly people you’ll come across. It’s fitting, then, that he’s just taken off to Europe to support fellow NSW electronic lords Hermitude on their epic tour. And if that wasn’t keeping him busy enough, his new project ESCAPISMS EP is set to release on March 25, making it a very good Friday for fans of the diverse beatmaker. In the lead-up to his EP drop, Ribongia has given us an enlightening lesson in some of his favourite and most influential sounds, African music. Educate yourself below and see if you can spot these influences crop up in his recent single with Melbourne’s own Hancoq, ‘My Word’.
ESCAPISMS EP will be released on March 25.
