Outtallectuals’ Himalayan reggae ambassador, Cultivation Muzik, sat down with Easitwelve to discuss his decade-long dedication to reggae music & culture.
Firstly, in the 40-min interview, conducted in a Nepali and English mix, the conversation covers the history of Outtallectuals x Cultivation projects. Subsequently, Cultivation dedicates the interview’s majority to the history of Jamaican sound system and dub culture. Then, the Nepali reggae OG talks about how this influenced the evolution of modern electronic and hip-hop music. Moreover, the conversation teased the announcement of their collaboration on Cultivation’s new forthcoming self-produced album, ‘Kora’, which is in its late stages of production.
Easitwelve also suggested the idea of an Outtallectuals collaboration, which is something we can’t rule out… after all, what’s Outtallectuals without completely random and unpredictable genre mash-ups? Besides, we’ve been dedicated to our base and projects in Nepal as a second home, and any musical exploration in Nepal is never out of question.
