Boomkat Product Review:
Following the essential first volume in 2017, this is another bumper compilation of North African and Middle Eastern sounds: Libyan reggae, Moroccan disco, Egyptian organ funk, Algerian soundtrack music and much more!
In the few years that followed the release of the first compilation, the label has dug further into the Middle Eastern and North African funk world and unearthed plenty more oddities. They just released an album with James Brown-influenced Moroccan mystic Fadoul, who shows up here with the trippy 'Ahl Jedba', and bring back Algerian soundtrack composer Ahmed Malek for the blaxplotation-esque 'Casbah'.
But some of the label's choice point towards their future releases. Libyan musician Ibrahim Hesnawi introduced reggae to his country - a style that's still popular now - and he appears here with the bass-heavy 'Tendme'. Also spotlighted is Libyan Najib Alhoush's 'Stayin' Alive' interpolation 'Ya Aen Daly' is one of the comp's quirkiest moments.
