Why do we like this?

As part of their ever-increasing expansion, Boiler Room has started premiering tracks they've dug out from around the world. With Boiler Room's now dotted across the planet, its fair to say they've probably got their ears to the ground. 

They're pretty good at it, too. The testament to that is this new track from Ethiopian producer Mikael Seifu. The Boiler Room team probably summarise it best themselves:

[The Lost Drum Beat] maneuvers with all the mystifying, dubstep/garage jerks of a Burial number, yet this is slightly brighter and more bouncy territory. Nocturnal by nature, yet less forlorn and blessed with ghostly percussive intonations.

Seifu himself is a hugely interesting musician; he was brought up in Ethiopia before attending music college in Manhattan, and is well worth checking up more on. Meanwhile, you can get a copy of The Lost Drum Beat EP via Bandcamp.
