From PR :
Highlighted on the DJ /rupture curated EP are a cross section of Dutty Artz projects, future collaborations and from the past 6 years. Imanaren from Morocco, who’s self-titled international debut was released on Dutty Artz in 2011, turn in a driving Berber folk tune. Filastine, a long-time friend of Dutty Artz, offers vintage-Soot with Autology. Amr Haha, Alaa Fifty Cent, & Sadat El Alaamy, Mahraganat stars out of Cairo, turn in an anti-sexual harrassment protest song, recently performed at a demonstration in front of the presidential palace in Cairo. Brooklyn’s own Ushka and Brooklyn Shanti turn in an adaptation of “Hanuma Vanama” (recital of the monkey) a Lankan folk tune brought to the club, and given a Bengali-twist!
Second one, Dutty Conqueror includes tracks from artists Trawma, Robzilla, Kush Arora (who remixed Gyptian), Old Money and Jahdan Blakkamoore.
