ANCIENT HERBS FROM THE BEAT SAGE SAAFRON (AKA Detroit’s Dakim ), Reishi is an alternative direction of beat flow LP. Reishi allows for Dakim’s alias intuition to take over a self-prescribed formula… hip-hop instrumentals fused freely with a heavily seasoned palette of improvisational tendencies and avant-garde sound design.

“There is no treatise likely to be too learned for me. Without Laying claim to real learning it is yet true that since my childhood i have striven to learn the minds of the best and wisest of every period of time. It is a disgrace for every artist who does not try to do as much.”
-November 2, 1809, to Breitkopf and Hartel, of Leipzig.
