Raised in his famous home studio and on the road while touring the world, Djesse explored and expanded Collier’s wildest creative dreams. Although his music is proudly unclassifiable, Collier enters a distinct sonic universe with each volume. With Vol. 4, the saga ends with the incandescent combination of narrative arcs, alchemizing a full spectrum of emotions into a massive, joyful moment of awakening and human potential.

Djesse Vol. 4 includes a surprisingly impressive list of contributors.
