First vinyl release of Geneva based Tunisian producer Pekodjinn. Maghrebi sounds meet club music, heavy trap, baile funk and dub. An Arabo-futurism experience. Founder of Ozadya collective, Pekodjinn has made himself one of the most influential producers in the Geneva subculture scene. Injecting his Tunisian heritage into the rap culture he grew in being a graffiti artist, he's delivering a futuristic mix where darbukas meet trap influences, traditional chants melt in batida and percussions are distorted by dub effects. Dharba, the first solo album of the beatmaker, is built in two parts. First one is an ode to Tunisian youths who fight a revolution against oligarchic power in 2011 and are still struggling to achieve what they started. "Chokri" is, for example, dedicated to Chokri Bellaid, a syndicalist assassinated in 2013. Second part is about imagining the future of Maghrebi, African, and Arab music. A unique sound where the youth of the continent and the youth of diaspora liberate themselves of colonialism, imperialism, and exoticism to build up a conscious sound to fight back the Western influences. If you want to know how's the guy sounds live, his DJ Set for Boiler Room is heavy tunes, heavy vibe... a newcomer to keep an eye on.
