El Mahdy Jr. Channels Old-School Algerian Music in ‘Raï Dubs’

Recent Album of the Day honoree El Mahdy Jr has revealed his next project, a collaboration with Gulls, XJ and Alter Echo called Raï Dubs.

“Beginning with a shared love of old-school Algerian Raï music and audio deconstruction,” the producers wrote, “we sampled several Raï classics from cassettes and YouTube rips, resulting in three tunes and a dub. Heavyweight system pressure, poly-riddim and crunchy arid melodics dubbed up inna Boomarm style!”
