Gifted skater, artist (he paints), radio DJ (he directs “sum n.elodies” for Dublab) and musician determined to blur the forms of the new school L.A. beat by way of abstract reverie. We’re talking about Mtendere Mandowa, aka Teebs ,a 23-year-old with roots in New York City who has just seduced us with his blurred, Flying Lotus-like beats. Ex-student of Red Bull Music Academy and member of the collective My Hollow Drum, Teebs has just joined the Brainfeeder family. This autumn, the Flylo label will release “ Ardour”. It’s the debut LP from Teebs, who until now has had only one official reference released, the “Tropics EP” was a split with Brit Jackhigh which we gave a good review to here at the time. The album will be available in shops on 18th October.
