Mutamassik, "Gulf Rock Mix"

Mutamassik, "Gulf Rock Mix"


One of the best tracks from Sound-Ink's Colapsus compilation. Mutamassik's debut album is out sometime this fall (I think), and she has a split mix with DJ /rupture out on Violent Turd. More tomorrow (and the actual text for yesterday's Elliott Smith post); right now I desperately need some sleep. For now, suffice it to say she rules- Mutamassik is heavy Arabic/African-influenced hip-hop, and this track hits especially hard. Sorry if I don't get more descriptive, but I'm afraid I don't know most of the instruments sampled and can't make out the sampled vocals, or even what language they were originally in. Keep an eye out for the Definitive Works LP; this is extraordinarily promising stuff.

Buy The Bidoun Sessions
Buy Colapsus or High Alert 12"

Solid. Nice chunky low-end, nice set of bombastic samples. One imagines it menacing a dancefloor.

Mutamassik already has a solo joint out called "Bidoun" . . .

Pretty sure you're referring to the Bidoun Sessions mix on VT, unless they've released an unmixed "selections from" type EP as Ninja Tune are wont to do. She does have a couple of EPs out though- "War Booty" on Soot and the aforementioned "High Alert." Do correct me if I'm wrong, though- I'm really itching for a Mutamassik full-length...
