ArabTronix Volume 3

My luv for all music Middle Eastern & North African never dies, it just gets stronger and stronger. I think I’ve mentioned many times already on this blog that I started out as a DJ because of my love for Arabic Dance Music.  Even though I might stray away from it from time to time, it remains a constant in my preferred musical tastes and is one of the few types of music that genuinely gets me excited time after time.

With Volume 3 of the ArabTronix series which fuses all things Arabic with Electronic Western Dance & Bass music, I continue the same formula of exploring the many hybrids of new and some old and fusing them together to create a cocktail of explosive sounds that could be appreciated from the Malvern Hills to the Maghreb.

With Volume 3, I explore some Arab Trap at the beginning and towards the end and everything else from Belly Dance through to Arabic Techno, Electro Chaabi, Dub, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Big Room Bangers, North African Berber melodies and riddims and stuff that sounds “like The Beatles on an Acid Trip in the Saharan Desert”!

Just falling shy of 2 hours, it’s a bit of a trip and so stick with it as it’s chilled, mid-tempo and then notches up a few gears towards the end. Indeed the last number is an absolute Maghreb classic that always murders it on a dance floor consisting of a North African crowd.

There’s unreleased material on here too by mainly North African and Middle Eastern artists (in origin) plus a few tracks from the forthcoming “Morocco Express” EP that’ll be dropping soon on our label.
