To turn back to Jarring Effects, the excellent French label that releases a good line of electronic BASS artists such as Filastine, Scorn, High Tone, EZ3kiel, Ben Sharpa, Oddateee and many more. Check out their site and soundcloud.
One afternoon around a month ago, during the peak of the various uprisings in the Arab world, I quickly & spontaneously made this Arabic sound inspired Rebel Up! mix. The narrow selection features western & eastern BASS artists & friends such as Badawi (Palestina), Filastine, Maga Bo, Mutamassik (Italy/Egypt), Muslimgauze and Timeblind. I could have gone much deeper, but like I said; it was a spontaneous burst and I just took the things within reach. The classic Kode9 & The Spaceape track is perhaps a bit off-kilter in these selection choices, but what can you do.
