“Solomon Vaughn aka Boonie Mayfield has never culled “a little bit of this, a little bit of that” as an attitude in his creations. From his lush studio instrumentation to the committed, experimental shamelessness of his raps and beats, Boonie has always explored music-making unapologetically, at the risk of radically revising his sound despite its reception on each new occasion. And so he has come thus far with an adventurous, high-flying model of producing music. He transcends genres; he twists and turns styles, always searching for every possible creative edge, no matter how elusive that may prove to be. He has released singles, EP’s, mixtapes and albums, stylistically diverse between them, but always with one common goal in mind – being the best he can be…by his own standards, and means.
Spiritual State is the third studio album by Nujabes, released posthumously as a follow-up to Modal Soul in 2005. The album was incomplete upon Nujabes’ death in February 2010, inspiring those close to him to see it finished. Spiritual State was released in Japan on December 3, 2011 and February 2012 in the United States.

“Within “Mora Tuga”, RUMTUM creates an experience of deep textured beats using himself as the sample source. Using haunting chants, woodwinds, percussion, guitars and synthesizers he layers sounds that conjure a sort of fog that lingers somewhere off in the distance. Welcome to the rainforest on another planet, where beautifully emotive instrumental compositions head-knod as easy as they thought provoke. Much like his print making and illustration work, RUMTUM’s music can be revisited again and again to find new moments of interest and inspiration.”
