Various Artists – Acid Arab Collections EP02

September 17, 2013



The acid Arabic wind has not finished blowing. After the warm welcome of our ‘Collections’ EP01, Versatile proudly present four new tracks for eclectic and demanding dance rooms. Once again, Guido, Hervé & Sex Schön from Acid Arab deliver one track and have asked producers from all over the world to contribute to the project. As you can see, some of the best musicians of our era have answered positively.

Legowelt (Netherlands) has always stayed out of all fashion and buzz, his fanatic audience follows every release and gig for a better understanding of his speech. Here he gives his own vision of an acid trip in company of Bedouins during a secret rave in Sinaï desert.

Headcore is one of many aliases of French touch wizard Dj Grégory. ‘21’ is a powerful dj-tool that will turn the Africanism aficionados totally crazy. A must-have for your 128 bpm mixes, five minutes of pure energy featuring beats, darbuka, a bit of oud, and some great organ.

The Habibeats’ ‘Rum’ is a jam between Professor Genius (L.I.E.S, New York), Dj Gilb’r (Versatile, Paris), Acid Arab and a secret-weapon guest: Shadi Khries, massive percussionist from Jordan, also featured on vocals here. This ain’t a dance oriented song but its rhythm may haunt for a while. This ain’t a chill piece but its deep vibe will rest your soul. Rum is the name of the Jordan desert, the lyrics come from a poem a couple of thousand years old.

Sidi Gouja’ is Acid Arab’s first new track since ‘Theme’. Co-produced with Sex Schön, you will recognise the signature in the devastating beats, once again inspired from complex Arabic rhythms, the harmful synths that regularly shake the song and the use of old Roland devices that look right into the eye of the acid house history. The song celebrates Slim Gouja (Sidi meaning Mister), a fascinating professor of musicology that the duet met in Tunisia last summer.
