This is DJ Drez.

His album ‘The Lotus Memoirs’ is an ecstatic mix of mystical hiphop and Indian raga.

I am moved by the subtle way in which he marries the mysterious depth of traditional Indian culture with intimate beats birthed by modern day machines.

I am grateful that DJ Drez has put his tracks out there on Spotify for me to be inspired by during drawing sessions.
