Etc Etc Etc by Tura, The Beatsmith, FKA Autolect
Hasan Rahma T Ullah known by his name Tura, is an American vocalist, producer, graphic designer, technician, fine artist and writer.As Autolect he produced forward-thinking beats on a string of strong albums from the mid to late 2000s (one of which featured featured production from 9th Wonder).
Often compared to RJD2 and DJ Shadow, it was clear, as (Bil) Basmala, that this beat maker (who has recorded as Hasan Atiq and released five albums from 2005-2010 under the moniker Autolect) is blazing his own trail. Theres a slight minimalist pulse at (Bil) Basmalas heart, too, and a dedication to following the drift of a songs elan that it shares with the spiritual jazz of the late 1960s.
"Basmala, brings you a self titled album that is sure to rock your chakras! Deep-nodic tones bring you to the right place of space on this latest offering from the left coast technician. And while he does acquit himself as a rapper, his voice is just another element in the sparsely decorated cosmos."
In early October of 2018, he will debut the latest project entitled 'Etc Etc Etc' preview at Bandcamp.
