Egyptian Hip Hop

Biography

Egyptian Hip Hop emerged at the end of 2009 and were met with universal acclaim. NME tipped them as one of the top ten bands to watch in 2010, whilst the Guardian, Dazed, Loud & Quiet and Radio 1 have been all over them.

Produced by dubstep supremo Hudson Mohawke, the EP is the kind of leap forward that only the most adventurous of bands can make. Glistening with inventiveness, it was recorded on the same mixing desk that Krautrock legends Kraftwerk used to record Autobahn, whilst fellow pioneers Neu! and Can also recorded albums using it. It instills the sense that something new is happening, that this is a band with a whole new approach to music making, daring and original.

'Moon Crooner' is a quietly propulsive opener, a new version of 'Rad Pitt' makes a great song even better whilst 'Middle Name Period' is a propulsive synth-led tune with rolling drum beats. Closer 'Native' is six minutes of twisting about turns that reaches a thrilling climax.
