"After meeting online through a mutual respect for each others' work (YungMorpheus' 44 Laws of Mentalizm and Fumitake's Mudai releases with Dakim for Leaving,) the two linked up at a brief 2017 Low End Theory performance and then began trading files back and forth over the next two years. Mazal, its title taken from a Japanese word meaning "a mixture of things," is the result, a cohesive yet varied album documenting stressful trials, psychedelic endeavors, and copious inhalations of marijuana. Veering from violent fantasies of societal upheaval to blunted musings on religion and politics, YungMorpheus' lyrics uncannily inhabit the twisted, pitch black backdrops that Fumitake conjures. Hypnotic chants materialize as blunted hooks which weave through the abstract beats like sun rays in a thick fog of smoke."

"When YUNGMORPHEUS & Fumitake Tamura met it was MOIDER....no not quite murder but a mutual respect for each others work. The two musicians started trading their hypnotic beats and hazed-out compositions back and forth over the internet wires and the result is Mazal. The album has a dark paranoia borne out probably from the feeling of being black folk in Trump's America as well as identity politics, death and as YUNGMORPHEUS writes... 'tings'. "
