The Caliph’s Tea Party is a remix album of Gonjasufi's breakout debut, A Sufi and a Killer. Featuring Mark Pritchard, Bibio, Broadcast & the Focus Group, Bear in Heaven, and Shlohmo, among others, the list of contributors is impressive. Their aesthetic fits in with the left-field hip-hop styled by former producers (Mainframe, the Gaslamp Killer, and Flying Lotus) as they chop the dreadlocked .
The Caliph's Tea Party (Broadcast & The Focus Group "DedNd" Remix). Kobwebz (Jeremiah Jae Remix). Love Of Reign (Bear In Heaven Remix). You'd expect a remix album of something as eclectic as Gonjasufi's debut, A SUFI AND A KILLER, to be rather homogenizing, but THE CALIPH'S TEA PARTY, but dint of having an extraordinary line-up of remixers on duty, manages to retain the original's spirit. Mark Pritchard take on "Ancestors" becomes both ambient and orchestral, like a soundtrack to a Sergio Leone film, while Bibio makes "Candylane" in a mellow electro trip.
