nofatclips 1st listen: I don't think I've ever listened to anything so unfamiliar yet mesmerizing before. It might as well be my new musical crush!

2nd listen: after repeated listening, I feel less disoriented and more able to detect structure and meaning. Anyway, I still love it like the first time. Favorite track: The Eternal Library.

John Seltenreich dark, atmospheric, polyrythymic...what's not to love. the more you listen to this, the more you are pulled into the Masma Dream World. And believe me, it's a great place to visit for the strong at heart. Beware the timid. Favorite track: Sleeping Whale.

about

Devi Mambouka’s evolution is rooted in her past informing her present and future. Born to a Gabonese ambassador and a Singaporean mother makes her a child of the world, and one who learned to tap into her inner magic to overcome trauma, abuse, and addiction. Play at Night, her debut album under the moniker Masma Dream World, is the resume of such learnings and experiences. Abruptly moving from Africa to the Bronx at 12 years old yielded intense challenges, but singing was a refuge and music was an escape. Influenced by the likes of Amel Larrieux, Toni Braxton, and Zap Mama, Play At Night challenges your preconceived relationship with darkness, guiding you to step into it. The album encompasses elements of butoh (a Japanese spirit-led performance art), the theta frequency, and the need to hold sacred space. This space is a prime opportunity to awaken one’s power source from within.
