Have a listen to Moroccan duo's ArabTronix Volume 1 in full

Generation Bass label owner DJ UMB has shared with us a new EP by Bazoga, an ace chaabi-influenced electronic duo comprising Moroccan-born brothers Salim and Tayeb Bayri, now based in Strasbourg and Budapest respectively. ArabTronix Volume 1 contains material previously included in UMB's ArabTronix mixtape, taking in original cut 'Radar', a track from dimmiT!!!, Tayeb's solo project, and their remix of Die Antwoord's 'Dis Iz Why I'm Hot'.

Says Tayeb: "Bazoga is a chance to rediscover the music which always surrounded us [in Morocco], allowing us to better understand it. The music of our parent’s generation, chaabi, the music of the Middle Atlas, doukkala".

Stream the EP and get hold of it for free above.
