Our dude Joost, one of the co-founders of the awesome Incubate Festival in Holland and also a key member of the Cairo Liberation Front who are currently working on their debut EP dropping soon on Generation Bass, sent me a link to this mixtape.
It’s an Electro Chaabi mixtape by an Italian Rockstar residing in Canada, Poercelain Raft and it’s pretty mad.
It premiered on Italian blog Deerwaves and so head over there with your google translate to read what they say about it.
Basically he says:
“……there’s something radical in the sound and approach of the new electronic scene Egypt . Everything started with a new generation of musicians, at parties and weddings , and then brought in concerts in the streets. There is no vinyl or CDs , but only mp3 and mediafire links . Rhythms that come from Yamaha keyboards and vocals with auto- tuning, eurotrash elements here that are taken and turned into something completely lo-fi and euphoric. This mixtape is a brief compilation , some tracks are taken from live performances, especially of a trio called EEK ( with Islam Chispy on keyboards, a star in the genre ), some things are taken from Cairo Liberation Front playlists and songs found in the most dark of the internet.”
