VA - Egypt & Lebanon: Cosmic Arabic Disco & Searing Dance Floor Bangers 1974-1985
If you have any interest at all in decidedly out-there Aarabic takes on disco - cosmic or otherwise - then you really need this brilliant compilation in your life. Comprised of music recorded and released in Egpyt and Lebanon between 1974 and 1985, it's a treasure trove of discotheque-ready gems from North Africa. Highlights come thick and fast, from the sweeping strings and lo-fi synthesizer solos of Ihsan al Munzer's dizzyingly upbeat "A Night At The Station" and the psychedelic madness of "Al Ghaba" by Assa'd Khoury With His Oriental Electronic Organ and Band, to the synth-laden, percussion-heavy dub disco thrills of Farid Atrache's "Cairo", which is the sort of record you could imagine DJ Harvey championing. To be honest, it's all "fire", as the cool kids would say.
