abdecafbanner

There are over 200,000 registered Infected members here on Bloody-Disgusting. So it only stands to reason that a good chunk of you are musicians. And, believe it or not, I want to hear your stuff! More so, I want to share it with the rest of the community that you are such a part of. After all, aren’t we just one big happy family?

So today I want to spotlight BD Infected member v0dka4arussian, who goes by the artist name AbdeCaf. You can find all sorts of awesome information and music samples below, as well as a free download of his Unravel EP!

If you want to be a spotlighted artist, contact me via one of the methods at the bottom of this article.

AbdeCaf: I’ve been doing this project for only 6 months, and have only released music with it for 4 months. My first single ”Feed Your Brain” came out February 8th, and I sent it to Diplo who favorited it on his Soundcloud, making it the only song in his favorites, and causing it to chart on the Soundcloud Indie Chart. After that I opened for Com Truise locally as my first show. Since then I’ve signed with the William Morris Endeavor (Bloody Beetroots, Swedish House Mafia, Holy Ghost!) for booking, dropped my first EP Unravel for free, and been booked to play VELD Music Fest, Electric Zoo, Counter Point and North Coast.

Tour dates:
Right now my agent’s working on a tour for the fall but my current dates are:
July 20th – Ft. Lauderdale FL w/ Zed’s Dead
