Record Label: Crammed Discs
Format: 12" Vinyl

The debut album from the mighty Parisian electronic music crew Acid Arab, who have been putting European festival and club audiences under a spell with their intoxicating blend of sharp Western electronic music with Eastern sounds and vocals. Also available as 140g vinyl with deluxe packaging and download card included. Formed in 2012 by Parisian DJs Guido Minisky and Hervé Carvalho, their concept was to create a space for Arab culture in the world of contemporary electronic music. They laid down groundwork by releasing several EPs (the Collections series) on electronic music label Versatile, featuring collabs, remixes and tracks by other artists. For 'Musique de France', Acid Arab have worked with a number of guests. To paint a complete picture, they needed voices, and some instruments: keyboards played by Kenzi Bourras and stellar Syrian musician Rizan Said. There's vocals and saz playing by Istanbul's Cem Yildiz and vocals by Yemenite sister trio A-WA . And collaborations with Paris-based luminaries of Franco-Arabic music such as rocker Rachid Taha, raï fusion pioneer Sofiane Saidi, as well as gnawa musician/singer Jawad El Garrouge.
