Check out a mix from Sublime Frequencies co-head Hisham Mayet ahead of next month's Outernational Days in Bucharest

Hisham Mayet is co-founder and co-owner of record label Sublime Frequencies, a label dedicated to unearthing various uncovered sounds from across the world. An active digger himself, Mayet's DJ sets span the sounds shared through his label as can be heard in the recording above captured last year at Bucharest's Control Club.

Mayet is one of the DJs playing at the inaugural Outernational Days in Bucharest next month, a festival presented by The Attic Magazine. The first edition aims to offer a line-up featuring acts from a variety of nations and regions around the world. Set to play live are Konono No 1, Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids, Maurice Louca Trio, Baba Commandant & The Mandingo Band, Okay Temiz & Harry Tavitian, Dan Armeanca (with band), Raze de Soare, Khidja and PTM Presents Novomatic & M. Visinescu.

Joining Mayet to DJ at the festival are the likes of Rabih Beaini, Andy Votel, Booty Carrell, DJ soFa and the festival’s own organisers playing as The Attic Soundsystem. Further to this, Vincent Moon will present a lecture at the festival, Okay Temiz will host a percussion workshop, Radu Malfatti & Philipp Schmickl will perform live and Rabih Beaini and Vincent Moon will team up on an audiovisual live performance.

Outernational Days takes place in Bucharest from July 1-3 in the surroundings of two venues, the URANUS Garden and Control Club where Mayet's mix above was recorded. The former features one of the last standing water castles in Bucharest having survived demolition during the Communist period and is surrounded by a beautiful garden. Control Club is a vibrant venue in Bucharest which regularly hosts alternative gigs and club nights in the heart of the city.
