Last friday was the release date of the “Sawtuha” project, which was a result of a recording session with 9 musicians from Libya, Egypt, Tunisia and Syria that spend 2 weeks in a studio in Tunis with Oddisee and Olof Dreijer of The Knife. To celebrate the release we uploaded two more tracks by Maryam Saleh and Youssra El Hawary, both from Cairo, to our soundcloud. The two songs were originally produced by Oddisee and got the remix treatment by austrian beat maker Brenk and by french producer Blackjoy. You can get the full release here.
here’s a little preview for the IAMNOBODI “snapshots from berlin” release. it will take a couple of weeks before they’re done. a lot of stamping and glueing that needs to be done but we feel this is gonna become a special little product. 10 beats produced or one way or another inspired by the wonderful city of berlin. 250 copies on numbered vinyl, each with a unique polaroid taken in the streets of the city that inspired the release. 250 copies, 250 unique covers. this will eventually be a little series with dedication to other places and activities coming soon.
