After releasing the World re-known “Arabadub” album in 2013, The Spy from Cairo returns with a deeper & more cosmic dance-floor sound. Coming back from numerous travels abroad with bigger club & festival performances, he switched from the traditional Oud to an electric Oud, which made things much easier traveling & live. The first two songs we get to hear from his forthcoming album in Autumn 2017 are here. “Sirens of the Nile” is a late night 110 BPM driving four to the floor groove mixed with live Oud, violin/ orchestra lines & echoing vocals. “Open Sesame” features the Oud over hypnotic electronic sounds & a crisp 90+ bpm boom bap beat. The cover was a photo taken from a previous tour in Egypt mixed with a photo of the burnt ambers of a late night festival around a fire.
