When you chop up breakbeats, jazz rhythms, funk and hip hop all together into one sound, you know heads will bob. Enter Tel Aviv producer Yuvi Havkin, AKA Rejoicer. As a key figure in Israel’s modern beat movement, Rejoicer puts equal stock into electronic instrumentation and jazz improvisation, and finds a narrative middle ground between visual and sonic storytelling.
At the end of the month, Rejoicer puts out his new album Energy Dreams, a record that explores the connection between asleep and awake mental states and just how malleable time really is. Yesterday Rejoicer shared a new animated music video (one of many for Energy Dreams) for a single featuring fellow Stones Thrower MNDSGN – “Purple T-Shirts”.
