Jamming on the Nile.

Egypt. The land and mythology that has inspired more musicians than practically anywhere else is the meeting point of two tributaries at different stages of their funky eletronic journey down the Nile.

At one end is Cairo Liberation Front, the Dutch duo propelling “a new wave of Egyptian wedding rave,” other wise known as electro cha3bi. Combining hip-hop, Eurohouse and Arabic rhythms that they describe as “Omar Souleyman meeting Sean Paul and Aphex Twin at a wedding party,” CLF have chosen to pay homage to ’80s hip-hop playboy The Egyptian Lover, with a 21-track tour de force that dives straight in with the timeless ‘Egypt, Egypt.’

Listen in below and click here to hear The Egyptian Lover on the other side of the controls, paying homage to Kraftwerk on VF Mix 43 last year.
